Design Society


The Sketchbook Design Society is a member-based organization of design professionals, educators, administrators, students and associates in communications, marketing, media and design related fields.


The Sketchbook Design Society is dedicated to the goals of raising the general standard of design in Bahrain and the Middle East. We hope to inspire local designers and engage the public through greater understanding and appreciation for good design.

Our vision and mission

To promote and educate: We will hold talks by industry experts and entrepreneurs, conferences, gallery shows, seminars and workshops with schools, institutions and corporations who wish to learn more about design.

Celebrate & Recognize: We will hold our very own awards for designers to give recognition to exceptional works in various categories of creative endeavour. Judging will be done by a peer-elected panel as well as accomplished and respected individuals from the design community.

Community & Outreach: With greater connectedness, designers can participate in local, regional and international design and cultural activities. The society will be the voice for Bahrain design and also the entire Middle East design and will initiate dialogue and exchanges with the worldwide design community.
