Whilst the London Studio enjoyed a sunny day out in Margate, the Dubai office attended the Office Exhibition in the World Trade Centre.

So a few of us descended to the Mat Lab’s Summer Games last night and completely dominated the table tennis event. Team Lindie and Rachel completely demolished team Ed and Kenny. Yay for the girls! Ed won a few medals in other events though while Kenny excelled at rounders. Laurence won at basketball, but then again, the hoop was hand-height for the tall fella.

Glenn is passionate about his left hand drive US specification 4.9 litre Bora. Imported from the US in 1990 (round about the time Kinnersley Kent Design was founded), the Maserati is still in its original exterior colour of Verde Pino, a rarity these days. It is combined with an ivory leather interior with grey carpets. Auto Italia magazine recently featured the Bora and it fared well against a De Tomaso Pantera and Ferrari 512BBi. They commented that it is rare to find such a combination of usability and originality. For the record, Glenn commutes to work by train – the Bora is purely for special occasions!

We came across this interesting blog entry on Redesign Arabia, called “Why branding dates and chocolate make Bateel stand out.” Here’s a snippet about the brand review: “… The brand itself is clearly crucial to this success. First, their logo is bilingual, wherein the Arabic part is dominant over English. It’s simple and it comes in the shade that dates and chocolate share: a rich, luxuriant brown. The name, brand identity and packaging were designed by the London- and Dubai-based firm Kinnersley Kent Design.”
