Founded in 1988, Roll Barresi & Associates is made up of people with a great deal of experience in signage and wayfinding, interpretive displays, corporate identity, and marketing communications. We develop and implement architectural graphic systems, and create corporate identities and print graphics that command respect and project positive images for our clients. We plan, design, write, and produce.

Our clients include Harvard University, The Arnold Arboretum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the United States Institute of Peace, Cisco Systems, Duke University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and MIT.

We have worked on projects of enormous range and diversity, from the National Aquarium of Saudi Arabia to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Arkansas; from the precisely incised roman lettering on the portals of the Harvard Medical School to electronic displays at Exploration Place, Wichita, Kansas; from the Smith College Campus to the City of Newport, Rhode Island. Each provides the correct measure of information while remaining appropriate to the character of the environment. Our solutions are intelligent and appropriate, in tune with collective memories while creating a feeling of something new and distinctive.
