Designing a restaurant menu always poses its challenges. During the design process, designers need to consider many things like branding, content organization, reproducibility and cost-effectiveness.
Due to low print run, restaurant menus can be quite costly to produce; graphic designers typically find it’s their responsibility to be cost conscious and ensure their client is aware of budget restraints. Furthermore, the cost of post-printing processes like creasing, lamination, die cuts, job fabrication etc. also needs to be considered.
For this menu design, we were required to create a multi-page menu that organized a wide variety of cuisines available at a 150-seat restaurant. We wanted to design a menu that was easy to navigate, so we created a menu design that differentiates each type of cuisine on a separate tab so that customers can find on their preferred cuisine in a glance.
Note: This job is different than normal jobs created in CorelDRAW. The terminology used to define the pages in design is:
1) Job Page(s): Actual page(s) in a finished job after printing.
2) File Page(s): Pages created and used in CorelDRAW file to create a design.
