Maynard is a design practice that creates wayfinding, graphics, products and environments for clients in the transport, commercial and urban realm sectors.

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.

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.
