From its earliest beginning's in 2007 limah set out to reshape wayfinding and set new standards industry wide. Our aim is to provide beautiful and inspired solutions that challenge the generic and 2D approach to wayfinding and signage design. The vision was to create a consultancy that didn't rely solely on graphic design and one that simply designs signage; rather it was a clear vision to make wayfinding a professional discipline, implementing the highest of standards. Our work engages our diverse team of industrial designers, engineers, architects, landscape designers, information designers, and project managers. Our key clients are developers and architects who understand the value of a professional-grade consultancy that provides creative solutions with exceptional deliverables. At the core of our work is a passion for enhancing the environments we live in.
limah first gained notoriety through work for EMAAR, Dubai Properties, the design of Université Paris Sorbonne and since then limah has truly grown into a multidisciplinary organization. Most recently our team has completed work for major urban projects such as the City of Madinah and Knowledge Economic City.
A strategy that makes a difference.
limah is committed to a strategy based on innovation, simplicity, and integrity. We believe that the relationship with the client is critical to achieving our long term success and we strive to provide the most comprehensive and innovative wayfinding consulting services available. We believe our work can truly add value to people's lives by enhancing the environments we live in. limah – the first dedicated professional wayfinding consultancy in the Middle East and one of only a few worldwide has developed a unique process and insights into wayfinding. Wherever projects take us in the world we aim to understand the local culture, the language, the diverse users, and develop sustainable solutions that will enhance environments and build communities. Our team is committed to developing a dynamic and successful company that makes a positive contribution to the social, cultural, and physical environment.
A new way.
limah was founded in 2007 by the Canadian designer Jason Lewis who envisioned a professional consultancy that would set new standards and innovations in wayfinding and incorporate local knowledge and an appreciation of cultural values in every project. After 15 years of designing and managing major projects around the world, he realized a need to better serve the architectural community through a more comprehensive approach to wayfinding.
Based on his years of research and experience Jason believes that wayfinding requires a holistic approach; in that no one design discipline can provide solutions. Rather a successful designer must be resourceful, creative, observant, and most of all have empathy for the end user. A designer to truly understand an environment and its users must have a broad range of skills from design and engineering, art, science, and psychology.
limah has created solutions for world-class architects and developers including Mubadala, EMAAR, ATKINS, City of Abu Dhabi, Archgroup, Pascall + Watson, City of Madinah, Parsons, Habtoor Murray Roberts, Economic Cities Authority, RMJM, and KEO. Our clients have included exceptional brands such as JW Marriott, HSBC, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, and Pullman Hotels. limah today has gained international reputation as the firm that "Engineers Experiences" through the creation of wayfinding masterplans, urban elements and public art.
