12 Outrageously Creative Restaurant Menu Designs

Running a restaurant is about making great food but a huge factor that contributes to success is how the food is presented. Of course, so many elements play into the performance of your restaurant marketing. The goal is to get people comfortable and intrigued as soon as they walk in the door. Attentive service and a captivating ambiance are essentials in accomplishing this; however, one of the most influential aesthetics of a restaurant is its menu. It guides the customer in their decision, and you want them to be excited about whatever they end up choosing. Think of a menu as an advertisement. It needs to showcase the benefits of your product and just as importantly be symbolic of your carefully constructed brand. Menus are the best kind of ad because they can’t be ignored. Make this experience an enjoyable one instead of a mandatory interaction.

Kulture Konnect has provided the following twelve menus as examples of outrageously creative menu designs. These menus were chosen because of the effectiveness of creativity and on how well the menu complements the existing theme of the restaurant. The various designs showcase a culmination of systematic layouts, carefully constructed color schemes, and expressive font and font sizes.
