Client presentation | Use Titleblocks and firm Logo’s for more professional looking sampleboards
When using a drafting program such as AutoCAD or ArchiCAD you typically have a page template that includes the following:
- Job title/project title ( in this case “Gelissimo Gelato”)
- Client name
- Address (site position)
- ‘Drawn by’ name (designers initials, so other people on the project has a reference if they need to query something)
- Note ( as the designer you need to notify if the page is not to scale, or any additional information that’s important when reading/viewing the drawing)
- Title of the page ( Sampleboard/Scheme design/Concept)
- Drawing number (this helps with filing the physical plans/sketches in a physical library or electronically in your project folder)
- Firm/company logo with name, address and contact details (usually sits either on the left or right-hand side of the template)
This type of template is standard practice in any architectural or interior design firm. It allows for order, referencing and can range from a complete project drawing package that includes architectural layouts, detail drawings, shop fitting details, elevations, sections, lighting layouts, plumbing layouts etc.to concept scheme ideas and sampleboards.
The reason for this brief introduction to titleblocks is that I wanted to demonstrate how it lifts the overall feel of your sampleboard to one that can easily be used in a client presentation along with your professional drawing sets. It can form a complete entity which in turn creates a more professional client pitch or presentation.
We are constantly improving and adding to the functionality and features at SampleBoard.com, as well as ensuring it’s an inspiring space from which you can create and interact. We are working on bringing you easy-to-use titleblock templates soon.
