"I greatly admire Sami’s work. It’s bold, keen, and always developed from a thoughtful perspective. I’m inspired by her continued support of creative projects both in the community and even my of own. I’m fortunate to be able to call on her critiques and advice as part of my own design process."
— Natasha Wheeler, Tonic Studios, Creative Captain
"When I had the inkling of a creative idea I immediately thought of Sami. Her enthusiasm for design, paired with her high level of talent and attention to detail makes her the perfect collaborator. Never sacrificing quality, always honest and upfront with expectations, Sami keeps things professional and fun. Plus, her boundless creativity goes beyond her polished design acumen—I leave every meeting with new ideas on branding, business growth, and enthusiasm for what's to come."
—Kelley Engelbrecht, Wonderfilled Magazine
