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.
Courtauld Institute of Art
The Courtauld Institute of Art is undergoing an ambitious, multi-million-pound transformation project at its home in Somerset House, London. To support them during this construction period, Maynard was commissioned to design the external signage and wayfinding at their temporary new home in Vernon Square, King’s Cross, which has now been installed.
A new gateway for Hatton Garden
We were commissioned by London’s Historic Diamond District in Hatton Garden to design a gateway sign which encapsulates its past, present and future identity. The sign communicates Hatton Garden’s authentic, historic cultural relevance to tourists as well as local residents, taking inspiration from the jewellery and watch-making craftmanship that the district is renowned for.
A Seamless System
We are excited to be consulting on the rollout of new SmartGates at Terminal 3 of Perth Airport. This technology will help to redefine the passenger experience, and will be rolled out nation-wide over the coming years. The new SmartGates will provide an advanced automatic self-processing system for incoming travellers, enabling it to meet the challenges of growing traveller numbers.
