My design tries to evoke a more creative, unified and consistent approach, making sure the text content is easy to read and the clipart images replaced with hand-drawn illustrations. Also a big part of the redesigned makes sure that the menu works for print, i.e. a menu flyer.
I decided to keep that scuffed and dusty chalkboard background for its texture and contrast to the white handwritten type and illustrations. The chalkboard style has become a staple of trendy cafes and pop-up restaurants, so as the existing identity incorporates it, I went with the flow on this one.
