Client: Pan Karaköy / design office: Geoid / illustrations, graphic design & art direction: Selim Ekmen @ekmenselim / interior design: Halil Doğan / concept idea: Mahmut Anlar
Pan / faun is a mythological half human–half goat manifestation of forest and animal spirits that would help or hinder humans at whim. It’s a cafe project i participated in 2014... When the client came with a hand drawn illustration of faun, me and the interior designer of the project, halil doğan both thought of a single “line craft” illustration of the main character faun to imply inside the place. Then the boss, mahmut anlar improved the idea as covering all the walls of the place with illustrations of mythologic characters. Then i had my first serious experience in graphic illustration and this concept emerged.
