The World’s greatest trophies and awards start with a great concept and design. At Thomas Lyte, we have a dedicated team who specialise in turning a client’s brief into stunning and unique bespoke pieces. With varying cultural backgrounds and training from Oman to India, Scotland to Singapore, Poland to Paris, and of course London, our design team are engrossed in international inspiration, taking your bespoke design to new levels.
Our design service is a very simple process, with your account manager there to help you every step of the way. It starts with a brief, approval of budget and fitting our services around what you desire. We then move on to the design phase. We typically generate 3-5 concepts for your review usually by traditional sketching, at which stage we can ensure we are ‘on brief’ and ‘on brand’.
When specific designs have been identified for further development, the concepts are re-worked into a 2D digital design. We put our heart and soul into each design, giving you an accurate idea of the craft behind your bespoke trophy or award. 2D design allows us to ensure that every element meets your brief and the design exceeds your expectations.
At Thomas Lyte, we always strive to we push the boundaries with our trophy and award design. That is why we are world renowned, working with leading sports governing bodies and their partners, creating many of the iconic trophies presented at the major sporting events around the world. 3D modelling allows you to fully get an immersive feel for the trophy. This service allows our creative minds to realise the impossible and rethink every detail to ensure that you are happy with the final look and feel of the piece.
The final designs are then presented for final approval and sign-off. The design stage typically takes 3-4 weeks and crafting of the bespoke piece takes approximately 12-16 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design. The entire process is collaborative throughout every stage in order to provide you with the highest level of customer service.
