Check out py3281's Menu contest…
Casual American tavern with a diverse American menu & an attached intimate music venue. Our mission is to serve delicious, affordable food that guests will want to return to week after week.

What's your vision?
We're looking for a youthful redesign of our menu so we can better appeal to the 20-30 age group. Here's some menu ideas listed in the order which we like them the most: 1. https://99designs.com/menu-design/contests/sports-pub-food-drink-menu-589625/entries/28 2. https://99designs.com/menu-design/contests/restaurant-menu-re-branding-733619/entries/49 3. https://99designs.com/menu-design/contests/southern-bbq-menu-562169/entries/16 4. https://99designs.com/menu-design/contests/jimmy-kitchen-bar-menu-598835/entries/11 5. https://99designs.com/signage-design/contests/smokin-barry-food-truck-hot-menu-hungry-255241/entries/50 Things we would like: --clean looking vector shapes (like cows, chickens, kids, steak, and pigs as seen in menu #1 and #5) are cool --needs that rustic, western US, cowboy, saloon look but still being fresh, young, and hip --legibility and easiness on the eyes is a must --ONLY excellent food images used. This will make or break the menu. --keep the same dimensions/aspect ratio as the old menu, design style being like a book --design it in CMYK and in a way that prints well, ideally using as many PANTONE colors as you can. I will know. --include our slogan "Great food starts here" --include social media icons/call to action for them to follow us on Facebook (@austinssaloon), Twitter (@AustinsSaloon), Instagram (@austins_saloon), and Snapchat (@austinssaloon)
I've attached our current menu below but you can also find our menu/item prices online: https://austinssaloon.com/menu/ Logos also attached below (both the white version and the black version). I've also attached the "Fuel Room" logo. DO NOT mix the Austin's and Fuel Room logos up. When using the food photos (download here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4XHpfqBOSfzV1dsZ05CZEtkdkU/view?usp=sharing), please use common sense and put them near/next to the food item on the menu. You don't have to use them all, but please try to space them out evenly and use the nicest ones. One thing I didn't like about the last menu was that there were low quality food photos used. I encourage you to use food stock images too if necessary but please have them be within reason and not outrageously different than what we sell on our menu. Please do not contact me outside of 99designs, anybody who does will be immediately disqualified. Thanks, and best of luck to you all!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Menu starts at $199.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their menu.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
py3281 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Excellent designer with a great design sense. They say that you can judge a business/freelancer by their repeat customers. Well, I'm a 3 time repeat customer with RAFDdesign so far.
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
