Restaurant and Cafe Menu Designs
Creative menu design by Melissa Price Design
A collection of elements come into play to bring together the complete dining experience. These include things such as ambience, a beautiful setting, friendly and efficient service, exceptional quality of food, interior design and of course the menu design.
The menu design process
The menu itself is a highly considered piece of graphic design where principals of communication are also important. The subtleties of design and visual hierarchy are king.
A menu is not just about list of dishes on offer. The menu must work with the complete design of the restaurant, bar or cafe to bring together the intended overall feel. In some cases the menu design will be bold and dominant and in other cases the menu design will be barely noticeable and blend seamlessly with its surroundings. Either way menu design is an integral part of any high-end, mid-range or even budget dining experience. It is an important marketing device which if designed properly can lead the diner to come to particular conclusions and make certain choices.
Menu design can be a statement about a restaurant, giving customer a strong opinion before they have even seen any of the food or drink on offer. Menu design must always be considered and never overlooked - even if the choice is a very simple menu design.
Some of the most effective menus can be simple - logo at the top, black text on white paper, menu items aligned left, prices aligned right. Possibly the more high-end the restaurant, the less designed the menu would look, however this does not mean that the design has not been meticulously considered. It can be even more time consuming to create a design that is simple as there is nowhere to hide. The typography of this type of menu design must be immaculate. The balance, spacing, tracking, kerning, sizing and every detail just perfect. Without a beautiful logo design a menu like this can fail immediately.
