A friend who is an international triathlon referee asked me if I could frame a collection of lanyards that she had collected from events around the world where she had been an official. We discussed a few layouts and finally settled on this. The lanyard event ribbon ends were all hidden behind the one ribbon of the International Triathlon Union which ran along the top. They were displayed on a grey suede effect board along with a few buttonhole badges added at the bottom. A dark wood effect box frame was used so that the contents did not touch the glass.
