Panca is a cevicheria & pisco bar in Porto’s downtown.

They have an informal but warm space in where they serve their empanadas and their ceviches and some tadicional street food.

The restaurant chef is Chilean and they want to bring some references of his country, like the colors, folk art elelments but with a a contemporary apporach.

Alejandra Jaña was the designer that was in the charge of the identity and asked me to collaborate with her, to bring some illustrations to the ambience.

I started to draw a intricate and geometric pattern, inspired by the south american weaving motifs and then I add some icons that would bring a contemporary feeling.

The main pattern was split in multiple small patterns and were used is the menu woodboard, in the totem, in the uniforms, etc. Everything that belongs to the space or the staff.

For the food, all the aplications has the icons – a frida, a cigarrette, a gun, a cacti, etc. They will be present in the paper that supports most of thee foods, on the coasters and stickers.
