About Us

       

The Whitney Veigas Studio

For more than 25 years our firm has designed and implemented architectural sign programs for corporate and institutional clients and the buildings in which we live, work, and learn. Our focus is rooted in the conviction that responsible design is as important for projects with limited budgets, as it is for high-profile projects with more substantial budgets.

We measure the quality of our work by these standards: it aspires to be simple, refined, and restrained. It is not dominated by aesthetics alone, but balances other factors including cost and functionality. Signs guide us, inform us, and contribute to our safety, and we believe they do this best when they are designed to complement – rather than visually compete with – their architectural environment.

We are located in the Boston area, and primarily work with clients in New England and the Mid-Atlantic.
