Mexican Airports – GAP

This is Mexico

Grupo Aeroportuario Del Pacífico or ‘GAP’ operates 12 airports in Mexico’s Pacific region. The objective for this project was to create a new wayfinding strategy, that would make a visit to their airports as easy and effortless as possible. From the visitors’ arrival and their stay in the area until his departure. Visitors will be reassured by providing directions, information and instruction.

We proposed an attractive and tailored design that supports GAP’s visual identity, and adds to the sense of place. The use of color plays a very important role. A complete new and custom-made set of pictograms, completes the picture.

The new wayfinding strategy will be implemented in the next year.
