We understand that top marks require top quality; something you can always count on at Orms. We also know just how stressful putting together your exhibition can be, especially with an ever-looming deadline.

We have years of experience working with creative schools like Michaelis, Red & Yellow, Vega, the Cape Town School of Photography and a host of others. We also enjoy close working relationships with many key lecturers – a valuable source of professional feedback that helps us achieve the best possible results for you.

To ensure that you get exactly what you need, our team will provide clear guidelines and honest timelines regarding the completion of your work, and we always make sure that our commitments are met, without exception.

Planning tip:
It might seem obvious, but to ensure you receive your work on time, make sure you schedule to collect your work a few days prior to your exhibition. In fact, build in as much time as possible.

Turnaround time:

To ensure you receive your work on time and as expected, schedule to collect your work a few days before your exhibition.
