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.
Maynard announced as part of team to deliver $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project
Cross River Rail is Queensland’s highest priority infrastructure investment, which will enable the extra network capacity required to operate higher frequency public transport that connects with other services and supports other network growth projects. This will help ease the pressure of road congestion, making Brisbane and the whole of South East Queensland even more liveable.
The Tunnel, Stations and Development (TSD) public private partnership will be delivered by the PULSE consortium, which is led by CIMIC Group companies, Pacific Partnerships, CPB Contractors, and UGL with international partners DIF, BAM, Ghella, HASSELL and Maynard.
Smart City Guidance
We were honoured to be invited to the Smart City Guidance seminar where our head of wayfinding Hayley Branston gave the keynote speech — How can we engage users in a world of distractions?
It was great to see the cities collaborating towards a common goal and exciting to be in a room with people who love wayfinding as much as we do!
We were thrilled to get down to Chelsea Barracks last month to see our street name and directional signs installed in time for the Chelsea Flower Show.
We were commissioned by Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group to develop a full wayfinding strategy for the masterplan, culminating in an internal and external signage package for the redevelopment site, including product drawings and specifications.
The design, materiality and colour palette encapsulates the craftmanship and heritage of the area. It’s great to see them looking at home in their new context!
