II. Initial Consultation and Client Requirements
A. Customer’s vision for the honours boards
1. Littlestone Warren Golf Club wanted honours boards that would not only showcase the achievements of its members but also complement the existing décor and ambience of the clubhouse. This called for a sophisticated design that reflected the club’s prestigious status and upheld its heritage.
2. The club required honours boards that were easy to update and maintain, ensuring that new accomplishments could be added seamlessly and without causing any damage to the boards themselves or the surrounding environment.
Specific wall space constraints
1. The club had identified a particular wall space within the clubhouse where the honours boards would be displayed. This area was restricted in size, requiring Signet Signs Ltd to create a design that would fit within these dimensions while still providing adequate space for the names and achievements of the members.
2. In addition to fitting within the available space, the honours boards needed to be installed without causing damage to the existing wall or structure, which posed an additional challenge for the Signet Signs Ltd team.
Excel spreadsheet with the necessary items and names
1. To facilitate the design process, Littlestone Warren Golf Club provided Signet Signs Ltd with an Excel spreadsheet containing the names of the members and their respective accomplishments. This information was essential in ensuring that the final honours boards accurately reflected the achievements of the club’s members.
2. The spreadsheet also allowed Signet Signs Ltd to identify any potential issues in the layout or organisation of the information, enabling the design team to address these concerns early in the process and ensure a smooth and efficient workflow.
III. Design Process
A. Role of Signet Signs Ltd’s graphics team
1. Analysing client requirements and wall space constraints

3. Backing and visual appeal
a. Etched glass film for a neutral background
b. To provide a neutral background for the names and accomplishments listed on the honours boards, Signet Signs Ltd applied an etched glass film to the back of the acrylic panels. This film created a subtle frosted effect, enhancing the readability of the text and adding depth to the design.
