Near to Far – Dan Sturges

Dan Sturges is a leading transportation designer, entrepreneur, and educator. Early in Dan’s career, he designed and commercialized the first Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV), and led the charge to create a new “right-sized” vehicle category for local trip needs.

Britta and Dan met in 1998 at frog design where they worked together on frog’s neighbourhood vehicle. When Dan shared his draft of the book with her in early 2023 it seemed like the perfect opportunity to collaborate once again and create the editorial design and many beautiful illustrations for it. 

Near to far provides the history, insights, and most importantly, the concepts and designs needed for more sustainable transportation—creating choices that are better from an environmental, economic, and equity perspective.
