DTA works with some of the most prominent architects and graphic designers in the world. Its exterior and interior signs distinguish corporate buildings and museums across the country. Recent museum projects include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, the Rose Center (Hayden Planetarium), and the Morgan Library & Museum.
