Menu Design Tips
Highlight the key elements
What you want your guests to see first on your menu layout: restaurant name, categories or special offers? The easiest way to highlight it is to use the larger font of this element. Also, we recommend using cool fonts for heading. The trendy food fonts are Playfair Display, Gabriela and Intro.
Make it recognizable
Branding is everything. The more your menu design and other brand elements are visually connected, the more your guests will remember your restaurant and be loyal to it. Add restaurant logo, use corporate colors, upload own stunning food photos and your menu will be incomparable.
Choose color carefully
As we have said in the previous point, color combination is an important part of a well-branded restaurant menu. If you have your corporate colors, you should use them in the design. If you don’t have any particular colors, use our color guide to create a menu for your restaurant.
