GIBSON DESIGN ASSOCIATES of Charlottesville, Virginia, is a design firm with a national clientele, having completed projects for the National Geographic Society, The Nature Company, The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Congressional Quarterly Books, The National Geographic Traveler magazine, National Air and Space Museum, and Time Life Books. Of course Gibson Design Associates also serves local clients like the University of Virginia and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.


Charlottesville is a thriving community of about 35,000 “Charlottesvillains”, and is famous for being the location of Thomas Jefferson’s historic home, Monticello, as well as the University of Virginia—both of which are on the World Heritage List of sites that should be protected at all costs. Charlottesville routinely shows up on top-ten lists of America’s best places to live, and we agree wholeheartedly!
