Welcome

Hi! I am Nigel French. Welcome to Designing a Restaurant Menu. An attractive and functional menu is essential for the success of any restaurant or cafe. In this course, we'll be using a real world project to create a cafe menu that is readable, elegant, and this is important-- affordable, and easy to update and produce. We'll look at three possible design solutions, ultimately coming up with three very different menus. Most of our work will be done in Adobe InDesign, but we'll also be using Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator.

For each design solution, we'll consider the following important factors; size, format, folding, color scheme, typeface choice, the use of texture, and the choice of paper. So let's get started!
