Bringing clarity to
complex environments.

Maynard is a global practice of strategists, designers and makers. Our multi-disciplinary team’s expertise span across; Branding, Wayfinding & Product Design. Our work is diverse, from developing a city-wide pedestrian wayfinding strategy, through to the design of a new collection of smart street furniture or a product range for a new Metro line.

People. Place. Product.

Our vision is to improve people’s experiences of the built environment by bringing clarity to increasingly complex spaces and societies. We believe that products, services and spaces should be designed to better the lives of the people who use them. This is fundamental to the long-term sustainability of a place and the wellbeing of its citizens.

User experience lies at the heart of our design process. We combine evidence-based service design tools with technical know-how, creativity and design sensibility to create products which not only improve the end user experience, but also provide commercial benefits to our clients and their stakeholders.

We call it Social Design.
