“KMA was retained to design a signage plan including bidding and contract administration. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the final products. KMA is a very competent firm that has the background, staff and ability to take concepts provided by our staff and turn them into a finished design that is unique, impressive and practical.”

“After review of several, well-qualified candidates, the City selected KMA Design. We found their response to our RFP well organized and reasonably priceed. In particular, we liked the fact that KMA specializes in wayfinding signage programs as opposed to a multi-services design firm. While we frequently try to support local firms, we felt “fresh eyes” were needed because of the make-up of the many types of user groups that use downtown. KMA has proven to be a thorough site inspectors, good listeners and responsive to downtown.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with KMA Design on wayfinding and signage master planning at both Western Connecticut State University and Fairfield University. In both cases, they were attentive to the specific needs and unique characteristics of each university, while offering their professional expertise and advise. The resultant plan at WCSU was particularly successful in unifying the campuses. The Fairfield project, while still in design, is eagerly anticipated to make much needed improvements to our campus wayfinding.”

“Over the past several years, I have personally worked with KMA Design to achieve a total interior and exterior signage re-fit for our 200-bed acute-care hospital. I have found the principals on staff of KMA to be competent and efficient, and they are very nice people to work with as well. They know their business and have provided many useful design recommendations that we have implemented. The improved wayfinding has been very helpful to our customers, and they signs they have designed clearly improved the professional look of our facilities. They have also helped us greatly with negotiating our sign plans with the very restrictive local government.”

Stony Brook University

“The University’s Facilities Management division has worked with KMA on numerous projects, large and small. We have always been satisfied with KMA’s creativity, attention to detail, and because design is a service, their responsiveness to client needs and requests. Designing a signage program requires a strong bond between artistry and operational logic, and a strong grasp of a variety of minutia including construction detailing, messaging, color, materials, fastening, etc., and that’s been our experience with KMA. Specifically for our most recent project, the Olympic Sports Complex, KMA has delivered for us a comprehensive signage program that meets and exceeds our expectations in design, function, and constructability. As a large University, we appreciate, and frankly expect, this level of excellence, and KMA has always delivered.”
