Cox Design has developed the identity and graphics for the new Pan Asia CafÃ© and Bar in Manchester, which opens at the end of October. The venture aims to capture the city’s student and young professional market.
Manchester architectural group Provin & Makin has also been involved in designing the venue, which is being launched by the team behind Manchester’s Little Yang Sing, a Chinese restaurant.
Cox Design creative director Kevin Cox says: “It’s more fashionable and youth-oriented – for a younger and trendier market. The identity has been applied in various guises across exterior and interior signage plus menus, stationery, invitations and promotional packs.”
Pan Asia CafÃ© and Bar general manager Leo Tse adds: “Features will include an open kitchen and there will Japanese gizmos on sale. I’ve seen the format work in London and hopefully it can work in Manchester too.”
