Offical Riba Siteboards
RIBA Siteboards are a means to display your architectural practices Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) membership at building sites. Among architects, RIBA membership is associated with high professional standards and commitment to excellence. RIBA Siteboards are available to firms where at least one partner or director is a RIBA member.
The clean simple design of RIBA siteboards is intended to be legible and impactful. Use of a company/office logo or font are not permitted and punctuation should be kept to a minimum. A horizontal line appears beneath the top line of text. The RIBA badge and all lettering are printed in white. The boards for Architects and Practises will be printed all over in red (Pantone 032) with white text, and for RIBA Client Advisor Boards this will be printed in blue (Pantone 281) with white text. The typeface to be used is Unica.
