The new owner of this cafe/restaurant with a focus on all kinds of beer, wanted to create an atmosphere of nostalgia with a modern touch.
His menu shows a list of classic and well known dishes from the area, but I know from experience they are of very high quality, often created in an unexpected way and presented in a beautiful modern style.
The re-opening of the cafe was executed in a very short time period, so the design of the menus and other printed material did not meet the quality standard and style that fit the cafe. In my designs I tried to emphasise the 'nostalgia' element without creating an old fashioned look and I also tried to add the sense of quality the dishes and restaurant deserve.
To make sure the designs were unique and recognizable for the customers, I used photos from the cafe itself instead of stock images from a database.
