When I was asked to design the menu for a Mexican restaurant soon to open in my hometown of Bluffton, I was needless to say pretty thrilled. Don Jose Mexican Restaurant was the talk of the town, and the chance to design their menu was an honor. After many hours of work (and a couple late nights), I finalized this design.
The entire project, from the owner’s initial email asking me to do the design until the menu was printed and ready for the restaurant opening, took less than five days. Throughout this experience, I learned about working under a tight deadline with many constraints, cooperating with local printers to achieve the desired result, and interacting with design clients.
