In japan a Mangaka is someone who writes or draws manga comic books. This project from 2008 was about building in the historical heart of Bordeaux a Manga Café with a well furnished library of Manga comics.
Projection hired 2PMA a very close partner with whom we share the same obsession for clear design and simple functionalities and Damien Lhomme an independent furniture designer. Our challenge was to transform an old premises into a brand new cool place for japan fans and cosplay enthusiasts.
We were all together in charge of the global project creation from its identity to its interior design. And that was wonderful!
For example, in order to keep harmony between the communication items and the interior design, once the identity colors were defined we order them in huge buckets of paint from the exact same CMYK mix. Have a look of the wonderful job 2PMA and Damien Lhomme made together.
We designed Mangak's website, menus, flyers, business cards, press ads, posters, interior signaletic and outside sign. Quite a journey!
