Think of colours as a spice for the restaurant menu design

Let’s think of colours as a spice to your restaurant’s menus. Going with strong and bright colours would definitely fetch the customer’s attention. Well! On another hand, it might not be. So for the amateurs who are new to using colours, one of the best approaches would be going with the black and white with one accent bold colours that pop out of the crowd.

Usage of primary and secondary colours.

The designers can go with the choice of two if one colour doesn’t seem sufficient, they can go with the choice of another colour. The trick is to choose any of the colours as” a primary colour” and others as secondary which can be used less often in the design. In this way the primary and the secondary colour compliments with each other rather than compete with one another.

Being consistent with the colours you choose.

Start picking up a colour and a complimenting colour that goes well with the chosen primary colour and being consistent with those 2 colours chosen throughout the design of the restaurant’s menu card. Else there is nothing wrong in choosing just black and white alone

Play with colours; colour pairing.

To sum up, these are the three major strategies to be considered while designing the menu cards. For the maximum readability, it’s good to have the background light and highlighting the texts with a darker tone and accents. And if the designer has got a colour in mind that goes well for the particular brand, next is to identify the right complement colour and the colour code that matches. To even go further with the colours, the next is to match the chosen colour with the photograph/image.
