RMA's new logo wins national award!

Our new logo won a national award! Gill Fishman Associates earned a prize for the new RMA logo in Graphic Design USA's yearly competition. The Fishman firm, which designed RMA's web site and brand, walked off with 17 awards in this competition, in which thousands of firms around the country submit their designs.

You can find our new logo throughout RMA's social media, digital and print materials. The logo is central to the lovely, evocative web site the Fishman firm designed for us, offering 30 pages of visually arresting images.

The RMA rebranding did not happen overnight. 

"Our program crosses many fields of endeavor which had to be unified visually," says Deborah Shapley,  President of RMA.

"Maps are an example," Shapley explains. "We had a layer of interactive tree data on a map of our part of Washington. Fishman enlarged the map to be easier for users. He framed it in a soft, gray-blue. The new page suggests our wonderful, historic avenue even as visitors utilize twenty-first century technology." Explore our interactive tree tool today! Go to to learn more about the tree species on our grand avenue and enjoy street views.
