memo board   You are to design and manufacture a small memo board. An example is shown opposite.
The back is manufactured from perspex and MDF (Medium Density Fibre Board). It has been decorated using coloured pencils and the perspex has been shaped. It has three LEDs that flash on and off, when a message has been left.

Two pieces of pine form the base, on at the front and the other at the back.

A circuit, powered by a battery controls the LEDs.

Draw two ideas for the front and two for the back. To gain high grades you need to draw an accurate title block and printing. Adding well presented notes and colour / shade will also lead to higher grades.
