What's your vision?
Looking for Cuban menu that incorporate cultural cues similar to those feature on travel posters 1930, 40s and 50s. Yet the design feels fresh and modern. The non-negotiable: -Full restaurant menu -Size 11 x 17 -Light background or sections of vibrant colors -Cultural cues throughout - look at all vintage travel poster -Spanish titles a huge plus- I can help there once we are working on finalizing details -Use our logo - provided -Leverage our color palette -Use vintage fonts -Be original with your theme -Usage of iconography a plus (see uploaded retro design) to bring the vintage theme to live if needed -Leverage images from vintage posters but don't make them the focal point of the menu, only use to make menu interesting and fun. Look at menus provided for inspiration DON'TS -Do not submit to-go menus or a to-go menu layout. It is not the ask -Do not use sample menus provided as your template -they were provided for inspiration only -Do no provide a happy hour menu. Read first bullet above -No dark colors, like black or dark browns as solid background
Include section for happy hour. Ok to use borders and other accents to make menu fun. It will be a huge a plus the use unique or fun Spanish menu titles -again I can help there once we are on final stages of menu
