rwalensky got their new menu by running a design contest:
World Renowned Chef Seeks Menu Design for New NYC Restaurant
Check out rwalensky's Menu contest…
Leonelli Taberna will open in the Evelyn Hotel in NYC's Nomad neighborhood in Q1 of 2018. It will be a fun, casual Roman Trattoria serving rustic Italian cuisine, along with a craft cocktail Bar and Lounge. The menu will be a comprised of baked pastas, braised meats, seafood, and will have a significant emphasis on grains and vegetables. It will be open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a standard menu template that can be used for several of the restaurant menus (breakfast/lunch/brunch/dinner)--the same overall design, and we would swap out copy as necessary Please note that there is potential for future one-to-one contracted work for additional menus (and other design needs) with the winner of the contest.
-Font: Futura Condensed Medium -Paper Stock to be used: (Uncoated) 130lb. Antique White -Menus to be created/printed on legal size paper (8.5 inches wide x 14 inches long) - menu will be held/read vertically -Brand colors - see attached PDF -Please see the attached file for an example of the dinner menu. This is merely meant to show the different menu items and categories, but we are hoping to bring a designer's eye to how everything is laid out/formatted (including the placement of the logo). Please note that Stuzzichini/Antipasti/Insalata are small bites and starters; Pasta Al Forno, Pesce E Carne, and Contorni compromise Mains; and Dolce are Desserts. In terms of how these categories are separated, that's what we want to see ideas for. Maybe they have boxes around them? Maybe there's a nice page break between categories? We'd love to see options -Beverages (beer, wine, non-alcoholic) will be listed on the back of the dinner menu -- see attached dinner menu. This needs to be designed/formatted as well -Design-wise, we like a fairly simple and clean aesthetic, and aren't really looking for the creation of additional brand assets -I've attached renderings of the restaurant, and the plates, to give some inspiration for the feel of the concept
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.
rwalensky collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Rob was extremely helpful and communicative throughout the entire design process. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone in need of book cover design assistance (or any other type of design work for that matter). Thank you, Rob!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
