My menu design is kind of basic to begin with. All I did is made a booklet where the front page is the cover for Paradise Creek Brewery. The cover page is the title in the very top then the location underneath, then it’s a picture of cups of beer. The image just covers a small portion of the page. I didn’t want to make it full image, I tried to make it full, but it didn’t come out good or at least couldn’t find good resolution picture to do so. Then it goes to the store hours. The following pages are the menu items. The menu items are small in scale, so you could see all the items much faster. I tried to make the dotted lines to the price as small as possible without breaking any rules I had for myself. The menu items take up the second, third and the back page of the booklet. I made the hierarchy as clear as possible. I didn’t want a huge mess in the pages. There is like only two type fonts used. The main titles are scripts while the rest are normal type faces. I think the fonts go well with each other. The script font is not to difficult to read plus it will help you lead you into the normal type faces.
Based on how the restaurant is I believe it connect to it very well. Its quite simple of a menu that you will easily and quickly be able to pick something to order. The images used emphasizes that this restaurant is a brewery and that they also have drinks to order. The overall color of my menu is white, so it won’t be hard for the customer to see the items of the menu. The items are colored in red, so you could see what are the items. My menu looks more traditional where there are not many things happening at once. I think the printed version could have used a different type of paper like more laminated. The size of the paper seems reasonable because it very close to the typical size of a book. The strength of mine will probably be the simplicity of the overall design.
Mine compared to Camille’s menu design is completely different. Her approach to her design is more of a trifold menu which really works. Each page is simple and doesn’t have to much going on making it very easy to read. The fonts she used are quite simple and very readable. The overall design looks professional. The size of the menu is small so its very easy to hold in your hands. Then each page has their own selection making it easy to distinguish the items much faster. There is no other color than the basic black and white but for her menu design it works very well. It will defiantly go well with this restaurant especially when people want to order their food quickly. The strengths for her menu are that is simple, small, trifold which make it feel fancier. Some things she may came up with is different color variations. But overall it came out great for a menu design especially when I never considered trifold as an option.
