Designs on menu planning...

We have been working on Portofino's new menu for the last couple of months. Tasting, tweaking, binning, slurping, salivating and lastly PRINTING...
This morning, my office was like the back room of a print factory.
In 1994, over three years before we opened Portofino, I asked the Hartlepool College of Arts if they could help me design menu covers. The then-lecturer jumped on the idea and turned it into an end-of-year project for his students.
I was rewarded with 17 different designs!
I chose one which we have used for the last eleven years. The logo was out of this world!
I framed all the artwork and put it up on the walls at Portofino. This morning I decided to change the menu cover while still keeping the logo.
I picked two pictures, photoshopped them and hey, Presto! we have a new menu cover!
I printed over thirty copies while working on the final touches of the menu.
