Sheremetyevo Airport maps

Overview   Process  

Task: to create airport maps.

The growing infrastructure and the increase in passenger flow at the largest airport in Russia required an update of the airport’s navigation. New maps based on common principles and unified design were created at the studio. The maps will be placed on information boards, printed in inflight magazines and published on the official airport website.

South Terminal Complex (Terminals D, E and F)

Guides for transfer passengers are marked right on the terminal complex map, not on a separate map as before.

Complex transitions between floors are made clear
Information is given both in Russian and in English

Zones are separated by orange checkpoint fences. Pictograms of border checkpoints and boarding gate numbers are made large and bright for better legibility.

Icons are divided into groups. Airport services are colored orange, supplementary services are colored dark blue, and pharmacy icons are green.


Stairs, escalators, elevators, departure boards and baggage claim areas are marked with 3D images of the objects.

Clarity, volume, visibility

Individual maps were created for arrival areas. A common area plan was developed for Terminal C, where arrival and departure areas are combined.

The overview map shows the location of the terminals and other airport buildings, as well as nearby roads, parkings and hotels.
