Spicing up summer in St. Ives…

Just in time for summer 2018, Talay Thai restaurant has opened its doors, offering an authentic taste of Thailand delivered in a modern style to locals and visitors to St Ives. A project in the planning for 18 months, Talay Thai is housed in premises which used to belong to a long-running fish and chip restaurant on the harbour front. A full refurbishment included a brand new open kitchen and set of windows that capitalised on the view across the Harbour and the sun has shone since its opening. 


Working closely with the owners and restaurant manager, we designed and developed a new brand, including menus, signage, window decors and a basic website with all the essentials on one page. For the menus, we specified a FSC and Euro Eco award-winning uncoated textured paper. These are recycled when worn out, avoiding the use of laminating with plastic. These were bound and placed on sustainable Bamboo boards – chosen for its fine grain and smooth finish. These were then laser etched by local Penryn based, Cut by Beam. Jenny also produced our striking laser cut signs which are subtle and complement the slate front of the building.


If you haven’t done so already, we highly recommend you round up your friends and take a trip to experience the Talay Thai Kitchen, after all – it’s a lot cheaper than a flight to Thailand!
