Living our work

At DbD, we are serious about our work-life balance. That’s why we give employees one day per quarter to experience placemaking first hand and to share with the world how it impacts their work.

Stories from the field

Exploring Brevard, NC

My fiancé Matt and I explored biking in and around Brevard, NC. The people were friendly, the food was never disappointing, and we got muddy on our bikes which always serves as a win! Looking forward to checking out more of the extensive trail network in the future!

First Time In Chattanooga, TN

One of my favorite uses of space was an alley used to park 4-5 food trucks. Sidewalk chalk indicated me to “Food Truck Alley” and I mozied past the trucks on a path of synthetic turf. Cheap and informal seating lined whatever space was available. Every time I revisited this alley, it was packed with people!

Exploring the Wilderness: Shining Rock

“This time spent on the trail also reminds me of the importance of mapping existing pathways. In the backcountry, one of the most important things you can have is a good map or trails app to keep you on track. It’s clear that GIS and cartography have a powerful role to play in making outdoor recreation safe and accessible.”
