About Us

Established in 1985, Back to the Drawing Board Signs brings a level of passion to artistic signage seen nowhere else. Working in a wide array of mediums and materials, they're renown for taking on challenging projects most larger sign companies wouldn't touch.


Utilizing a unique combination of whimsy, custom design, heavy engineering and skills dedicated to creating wonderful art - and their uncompromising commitment to excellence - Kat and Barry have achieved a recognition not usually reserved for those in the sign business.


Many of their projects have appeared in San Francisco art and travel books as well as local newspaper and national televisionshows  including American Idol; South Park; The Amazing Race; and Big Places, Small Spaces.


Barry Forman was born in New York, attended Brooklyn Tech and Buffalo College before backpacking around the planet for over a decade, ultimately arriving in California where he met Kat.


Kathleen Wilson is a San Francisco native and a graduate of the Academy of Art University.
