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.
Peter Brown, Maynard Associate Director
Congratulations to Peter Brown, who has been promoted to Associate Director in Australia.
Peter joined Maynard in 2013 in London, where he quickly became an integral part of the Industrial Design and Infrastructure team delivering Crossrail C100 & Contractor Support packages.
Over the past 5 years, he has been instrumental to the growth of Maynard in Australia, leading the Industrial Design team and delivering projects such as Melbourne Metro Tunnel, Cross River Rail, while leading the development of Maynard’s Rail Infrastructure team through various bids in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
The Foundry has been the home of Maynard’s London studio for the past 3 years. It’s the place where we come together to brainstorm ideas, prototype and test concepts, go for lunchtime walks by the canal, and ultimately design products and spaces that better the lives of the people who use them.
During this past year, we’ve all learnt to adapt. We’ve also learnt we can, and should, be the ones defining the new normal. Cullinan Studio is doing just that – taking the opportunity presented by the lockdown to create a multi-disciplinary co-working environment for the Foundry.
We are excited to welcome the new practices that will be joining us and look forward to collaborating and inspiring one another!
“Design is a collaborative process and having other specialists all together in the Foundry will enable us to share ideas and support each other on future projects.”
