Dubai Airport Car Park Signage - Maynard

Dubai International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, now ranked thirteenth globally for international passenger traffic with approximately 47 million passengers per annum (mpa).

Dubai Airports commissioned Maynard, in partnership with Atkins, to develop a complete signage strategy for the airport forecourt, including comprehensive design guidelines and placement principles.The aim of the project was to design a clear and predictable external wayfinding system which improves the overall experience of airport visitors.

Initially a review of existing wayfinding standards was undertaken, as well as a thorough gap analysis of the existing terminal wayfinding. Based on this we developed a comprehensive set of wayfinding guidelines which support the implementation of a simple and coherent sign system.

In designing the signage guidelines we drew on our extensive experience in signage and information design for transport environments, as well as incorporating international standards of accessibility. Our multi-disciplinary approach allowed us to exceed the client’s expectations by providing recommendations on how to improve the wayfinding standard across all terminal enviroments.

The comprehensive wayfinding guidelines developed can now be used to implement an exterior signage system which can be rolled out across all of Dubai International’s external terminal environments. The guidelines Maynard have produced will allow the continuing provision of best-practice wayfinding for the forecasted passenger growth at Dubai International Airport.
