Restaurant Menu

The first project required us to create a restaurant menu for Miko. When I first started working on this project, I realized I wouldn’t be able to complete my intended menu design, but I realized it would be a good opportunity for me to learn the basics of InDesign. I believe I was successful in learning to use InDesign well enough to complete these projects and improve in the future, but my designs are not as good as I would have liked. If I had more time, I would devote more attention to the design aspect of the project and attempt to create a multi-folding menu and better visuals.

I like the color scheme I chose for this project, so I try to think of new ways to use color and design to make things look more elegant. Learning the technical aspects of Indesign was the most difficult part. Indesign has a lot of useful tools, especially the character and paragraph tools, that make writing and formatting a lot easier.When I saw my classmates’ work, I immediately thought of several other approaches I could have used for this project, but I’ll save that for our next one. Overall, I’m not happy with the final product, but I’m glad I have a better understanding of  Indesign.
