Wayfinding for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Terminal 2, Mumbai
This project aimed at redeveloping a wayfinding system for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai. Revamping the system, fixing existing problems, and future-proofing the wayfinding system was the primary agendas at the commencement of the project. Although the scope of work was well defined, by classifying the whole system as an indoor and outdoor area, it was later merged into one and worked on as a whole. The project followed a conventional methodology of progression but with a slight deviation. The project commenced with a field visit for data collection, followed by the analysis carried out by the team at Moniteurs. Then came the research phase for additional data gathering and reference study followed by the design process, solutions were derived as per the mentor's guidance. Solving problems and visual redesign aided in devising the deliverables, a new visual design of the wayfinding system was designed. This included sign dimensions, colours, and proposals on how the new design could integrate into the existing infrastructure, be flexible to accommodate new additions to the system and prepare for both digital and analogue expansions in the future.
