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.
Auckland Airport is undergoing an ambitious programme of development, enabling New Zealand’s largest international gateway to serve 40 million passengers per annum by 2040. Maynard is delighted to be providing wayfinding services across multiple projects in support to the Lead Consultant (Mott MacDonald) and other members of the consortium (Grimshaw, Architectus and Holmes Consulting).

New connections in downtown Auckland
Through the Downtown Programme, Auckland Transport and Auckland Council are transforming the city’s waterfront into an attractive, people friendly public space. Maynard is working across multiple projects to connect spaces in downtown Auckland for pedestrians, cyclists, bus, train and ferry passengers. The new wayfinding and signage will improve the experience of transport interchanges, and create a more discoverable city for visitors and locals alike.
