TPD received three awards from Graphic Design USA (GDUSA)’s American Graphic Design Annual Award program for their design work on three separate multimodal planning projects in Western North Carolina. These designs were created and executed by TPD’s Creative Design Manager, Danielle Kauffman. Each of the three plans won in the “Designing for Good” category.
These projects include:
- Asheville, NC’s 2022 Close the GAP (Greenway Plan, ADA Transition Plan, and Pedestrian Plan)
- Hayesville, NC’s 2023 Hayesville Moves Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan
- Weaverville, NC’s 2023 Active Weaverville Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan
GDUSA is an organization that has been a source of news and information for graphic designers and the broader creative community since 1963. The “Designing for Good” category encompasses graphic communications that advance positive social and environmental action and social justice impact; promote diversity, equity and inclusion; and aim to make communities and the world a better place for people and nature.

TPD congratulates Danielle for the well-deserved recognition of her creativity and design skills that elevate and illustrate the important message of these multimodal plans. All three plans develop a network for people walking and biking in each community that is rooted in community input, equity, and safety.
