CN+A airport project experience includes wayfinding master planning and signage design programs for Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Chicago Midway International Airport, Orlando International Airport, San Diego International Airport and Rockford Regional Airport.

The business was founded in 1975, and is located in Chicago, Illinois. CN+A is a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) / Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE).
