SKA Design was founded in 1965, primarily as an interior design firm. In 1980, we began responding to a new need, becoming a leader in the emerging discipline of environmental graphic design. Our founders are actively engaged in several professional associations helping to promote the discipline of EGD, and foster collaborative relationships with other fields of design.
With a uniquely proactive, partnership-based approach to customer care, we put client needs first, envisioning and delivering creative solutions for any image and any surface for retail, corporate and event environments.
