School starts tomorrow, so I thought it only appropriate I finally wrap-up my work from last semester before the new one starts. And it just so happens that I saved one of my favorite projects for last.
I happen to love food ( hello! I write a blog about it ), so when my typography teacher gave us the assignment of designing our own restaurant logo + menu, I was ecstatic. To design menus for a living might just be my dream job. The one caveat was that we had to design the logo + menu in the style of a design movements. I chose Dada, which, as you can see from the top inspiration board, is a funky European avant-garde movement that started in the early 1900s as a rebellion against World War I.
Flicker Café is probably my dream restaurant. The menu, the type ( I used League Gothic + Marion ), the shapes and the simple yet quirky result. If I do use this piece in my portfolio however, I want to go back and refine the menu design to give it more richness and depth. In the logo, you can see that I used a light texture overlay which adds to the “flicker” of the design. The menu lacks that same texture, which is making it read a little flat to me. But otherwise, I love it all.
And that my friends, is an official wrap on spring semester.
