In chapter three, the research design has incorporated four inter-related phases. Phase One: Literature search and review, Phase Two: Questionnaire Survey and Interview, Phase Three: Case Studies and Phase Four: Observations. Chapter four shows the process of data collection including the problem arises during research for data collection. The research findings will benefit those who are involved in this industry. For trophy manufacturers, the research materials can be used as key factors in the formulation of company strategies. The research has identified the role of trophy designer and manufacturer and the part they play in the creating of using symbols in custom-made trophy designs in the face of Made in Malaysia trophy, globalization, and the implementation of Asian Free Trade Agreement (AFTA). The image of the trophy designers and manufacturers will improve in stature paving the way for more opportunities and recognition.
