Obai & Hill Corporate Offsite 2013


We were honored to be hosted by the fantastic staff at The Domain Hotel Bahrain for our first corporate offsite this year.


We started our day with a yoga session led by one of our account managers to rejuvenate ourselves and get a good long stretch! Second, we began discussing the projects we worked on during the year of 2013. photo_22

We then moved to the boardroom on the 12th floor where we enjoyed a light breakfast and some coffee before getting hard to work on our company strategy for 2014.


We had 3 presentations, several brainstorming sessions, as well as a round table discussion to really get the most out of the entire team. We thoroughly enjoyed the dynamic discussion and had a chance to reflect on the past year which included discussing our shortcomings and suggesting improvements as well as celebrating our triumphs and successes.


Afterwards we headed to Le Sauvage for a decadent 3 course meal which we enjoyed in the presence of some stunning views.


And finally, our creative director held an impromptu awards ceremony where each of our team members was presented with a unique and quirky award to acknowledge their hard work and commitment to Obai & Hill in 2013.


We look forward to planning our next offsite and a wonderful year ahead!

Logo Design Competition Winner: Obai & Hill

We recently participated in a logo design competition hosted by Arab Architects Architects Institute & Network, a society called ‘AIN, through which they mentioned the things to keep in mind while designing the logo, which include that the letter ‘ع’ in Arabic & the letters in English should be together. The logo should also contain something that unites Arabs in all Arabic countries such as: language, culture, architectural element, natural environment existing in all countries – Arab countries here are defined as all countries in the Arab League – the logo should be professional, inspired from the Arabic environment yet contemporary & modern.


For our concept, we have decided to use the Arabic letter ‘ain as our main focus. We created two different logos using the letter with an added element to each. A blue variation was added because blue is popular in Mosques due to its calming nature. This logo relates to architecture and the shape and silhouette of buildings and incorporating it in the ‘ain.
