LSA's mission is to create high-quality designs for public environments that

content and powerful subject matter. We believe that environmental design must engage the intellect and the heart to facilitate and maximize the self-learning experience for visitors. Effective signage and exhibits stimulate interest and broaden understanding of the place and the subject matter. Communication through graphics, interactive and hands-on components appropriate to the particular setting promotes discussion, stimulates creative thinking and provides a memorable experience for the visitor. Many of LSA’s projects create a bridge between signage and wayfinding, public art and interpretation. We take most of our projects from the early planning stages, through design development, to final fabrication.
