KMA Design: Celebrating Twenty Years of Growth

“In our twentieth anniversary, KMA Design has grown to sixteen employees, acquired a new office building in Carnegie, PA, and opened an office in Tampa to better serve our increasing southern client base,” according to Barbara Martin, president of KMA Design.

KMA Design has become one of the nation’s premier experiential graphic design and wayfinding firms with work in twenty-nine states, as well as Paris and Rome. The firm designs, programs and implements signage systems for universities, hospitals, casinos, sporting complexes, airports, and cities.

The firm’s clients have included Universal Studios, Walt Disney World, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, PNC Park (home of major league baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates), CONSOL Energy Center (home of the National Hockey League’s Pittsburgh Penguins), St. John’s University, West Virginia University, University of Memphis, and Johns Hopkins Hospital.

“In the past three years, thanks to our dedicated staff, venders, and my partner—David Kosick,” noted Martin, “KMA Design has doubled our annual revenues, and with the move to our new headquarters building, we have tripled our space to better facilitate communication and our studio concept of teaming.”

Recent work from the Pittsburgh office includes Stamford Hospital in Stamford, CT; WVU Medicine in Morgantown; Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY; Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA; and the communities of Aspinwall, PA, Bridgeville, PA, and Bloomfield, CT.

“With our increasing work in Florida,” added Martin, “we opened a Tampa office in order to service Florida Hospitals—Wauchula, Tampa, North Pinellas and Wesley Chapel locations, as well as Orlando Health – Horizons, Lakeland Regional Health in Lakeland, FL, Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami and the cities of Port Richey and Lake Worth, FL.
