A menu design for Heartwood Restaurant in Ottawa, Ontario. Heartwood Restaurant was started by Becky and her sister Shanti. Named in honour of their father, who worked on heartwood guitars, this family run business needed to make a statement with their menus. A lovely burgundy colour was chosen to be the base of these stunning menus to represent the love this business started on. A bold san serif font for the titles to keep it casual and a type writer font for the food descriptions to give it a personal feel. We knew these menus needed one more element, something to really bring in the rest of the restaurant's vibe and energy. We ended up finishing it off with some simple illustrations of the menu items and of course, a guitar. First impressions are so important, and what better way to show off the delicious meals that are made at Heartwood than with a banging' menu!
