Wayfinding Designer

Who we are

Mijksenaar is a leading internationally operating Wayfinding design firm based in New York City and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We have over 36 years of experience working on complex wayfinding systems around the world, with a strong focus on transportation facilities such as airports and train halls. Our work, however, extends beyond large transit hubs, and can be found in cities, hospitals, museums, and other cultural institutions. At Mijksenaar, we strive to connect people with spaces and places in a meaningful way. We help passengers navigate through major international airports, we guide tourists and residents through the most beautiful streets of cities, and we give children the tools to discover their way around zoos.

We see every visit, ride, and trip as a journey–all of which we strive to make easier, intuitive, and more efficient for the user.
