Mauk Design worked with HOK in San Francisco on their first major environmental graphics project for the Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar. The signage design program finds inspiration in the architectural detailing, creating an elegant and timeless solution for the soon-to-be international travel hub.
Consisting of 4,000 signs, the system included sign typologies, kiosks of all forms, flight information display systems, baggage information display systems, terminal wing signs, and information desks. The sign design direction was drawn from the airfoil shape of an airplane wing, and the stainless steel triangular pattern echoed that of the ceiling treatment throughout the terminal. Check-in kiosks echoed the horns of Qatar’s indigenous oryx, which is found in the Qatar Airways logo.
