ENHANCING YOUR CORPORATE IMAGE
I should like the opportunity to work with and add value to your team to design and then create gift products that will enhance your corporate image with your key customers. My background & experience give me the exceptional ability to personalize design for your Country and Client specific Corporate Branding and then to create the gift products that will enhance your corporate image with your key clients or customers. My objective is always to seek out lifestyle images that are excitingly creative but with the impressive quality to meet every occasion.
As you may know, I am the creator of the luxury brand "ORAGRI BY Heidi Steck". I set up my own production and design agency in 2010 first in Johannesburg and more recently in Franschhoek in the Cape Province. I have been best known for my iconic hand painted ceramic Rhinos, Elephants and Dung Beetles including the Life Sized fibrerglass Rhino and Baby Elephant hand-painted Sculptures.
Our customer following has extended to countries like Germany, England in Europe, to USA and to Japan. Even Sir Richard Branson has bought a Life-sized Rhino and Baby Elephant for his Mont Rochelle Hotel, in Franschhoek, South Africa.
My early history meant I graduated at the Inchbald School of Design in London before returning to South Africa where I worked for three well known Interior design Companies - SOATO Interior Design Cape Town with Mark Rielly, Switch Branding & Design and MEHA Art and Interiors in Johannesburg. I am fluent in German, English and French with good understanding in Italian.
I have more recently refocused my attention to creating ready-to-wear 100% silk twill, silk wool and french crepe scarves, scatter cushion covers in both 100% cotton and velvet, hand-painted panama hats, hand-painted travel bags and jewellery. With these developments in mind, I also plan to develop a global market. These products will continue to be made in South Africa which mean they will continue to benefit from the Rand Exchange Rate.
