Omar Hakeem is a D.C. based architect, specializing in social and environmental equality through thoughtful design and planning.
Omar has completed award winning affordable housing projects, rapid response disaster housing prototypes, urban bike and pedestrian infrastructure, regional drainage improvements, and community based rural planning initiatives. Omar’s passion for design has taken him from the cloud forests of Costa Rica to the ravaged communities of the Gulf Coast and many places in between. His professional practice has also included supporting large arts & cultural projects and prefabricated modular buildings. With such a diverse portfolio and skill set, it was important for the brand to not stand in the way of the work. A modern brand based on sharp lines and perfect circles mimics Omar’s standard principles of design.
Drawing inspiration from early artist marks — a unique monogram was developed.
It was important not to lose all character in the mark itself; a slanted ‘H’ crossbar mimics a modern roofline. Giving the monorgam a personal touch and tie to the work.
