Martin Long – Business Owner
From the outset I was so impressed and inspired with the KWD website with the way it was cleverly laid out and so chock full of handy and useful tips on developing a successful website (and on marketing in general), that I knew Amanda would be a perfect fit to take Ginreab Thai to where we wanted to go with our start up restaurant business.
From our rough and basic ideas on all things website, marketing, logos, menus, menus covers, signage, fb site, food photos and much, much more, Amanda’s experience and personable, friendly, approach and understanding of our intended message and branding position made for an enjoyable and speedy process of development of these ideas in to a wonderful reality.
The development of our logo from my crude sketch using my 4 y.o. daughter’s crayons taken from a 3am vision of a noodle bowl inside a traditional Thai house, which Amanda morphed in to the pleasing end result all with us coming along for the ride and having design input, was also a magical and fun experience to be part of.
We are so happy with the professional and user friendly results and can’t praise Amanda enough for what she has done for our business.
Ginreab Thai Menus composes of In-house Menus, Take-away Menus and a Menu Board.
The In-house menus took some considerable time to research. There are so many different types of menus to choose from but we wanted a recycled modern look and so decided on a recycled handmade brown paper which complimented their logo perfectly.
We thought that the insides of the menu cover, both front and back, presented an opportunity to say hello and welcome and goodbye and thankyou.
Our introductory text explained why the restaurant is called “Ginreab Thai” and I used some additional information about chilli “hotness”, along with a request to like them on facebook or write a review about their dining experience.
As Ginreab has an extensive menu, rather than have a very busy looking menu, we decided to use one photo per category, allowing more room for a larger font, for ease of readability. For this reason, we chose to use A3 landscape paper, folded in half, to produce four A4 portrait pages. We chose a carbon rod to hold the pages into the centre of the menu.
This type of menu also allows for the owner to simply re-print any updates without having the whole menu redone, saving time and money.
As with all the images in this website, you can click on the images for a larger view.
The Menu Board’s dimenisions are 3metres wide x 1 metre high. Once again the layout was difficult as all categories had different amounts of menu items.
Ginreab Thai Takeaway Menu is a trifold brochure, consisting of 9 panels.
