Maynard is a design practice that creates wayfinding, graphics, products and environments for clients in the transport, commercial and urban realm sectors. Our work is diverse, from developing an urban wayfinding strategy, to the design of a product range for a new Metro line or creating a collection of street furniture.
User experience is at the heart of our process, ensuring highly bespoke and responsive design. Our ability to combine technical knowledge, design sensibility and craft helps us to create products and spaces that better the lives of the people who use them.
We believe that exceptional design should be made available to all.
That is why we are pleased to be part of Westminster City Council’s landmark project to renew Ebury Bridge, a scheme that will deliver approximately 750 new high quality homes in the heart of the city, of which 50% will be affordable.
Working in partnership with astudio architects and Arup, Maynard has been appointed to deliver an overarching wayfinding masterplan for the renewal project, all the way through to its detailed application to Phase 1 of the development. The project will set new standards in how large-scale estate regeneration is undertaken, from engaging with residents, creating a vibrant community spirit, enriching public spaces and reaching new targets for sustainability.

Wangaratta Railway Precinct Improvement
Maynard have worked closely with Rural City of Wangaratta and the Hassell landscape architecture team to prepare cost-effective wayfinding and signage solutions that are well integrated with the new streetscape.
From a series of fingerpost signs for visitors arriving into the township to a new trail-head for the popular ‘Murray to Mountains Rail Trail’ cycle route and the creation of a new map-board, co-located with bicycle parking, seating, a shade structure, drinking fountains, and a bike repair station.
The project, which is currently under construction, has recently received two awards in the 2020 Victoria Landscape Architecture Awards.
