Queenstown Airport in New Zealand has revamped its wayfinding signage system to guide visitors through the gateway from the arrivals kerb to the departure gate, and as you can see it is pretty impressive.

Designed to enhance the visitor experience, the airport reveals that the aim was to provide clear, internationally-recognised signage and wayfinding for customers to navigate their way from park to plane and in reverse.

The programme of works started over a year ago, with the terminal car parks, P2 drop-off zone and transport area, the rental car parks and the arrivals and departure doors the first to get a re-fresh.

The installation and transformation of the interior wayfinding has just been completed, including the overhead signage, airside and landside doors, bathroom facilities, Flight Information Display Screens (FIDS), Info Desk, baggage trolleys and the agency areas for departures and arrivals.

Queenstown creative design studio makebardo, a collaborative of creative directors Bren Imboden and Luis Viale, was responsible for the re-design aimed at offering visitors a more memorable and user-friendly experience when moving through the airport.
