A restaurant web site, presenting your menu, photos of your food, and descriptions and images of your concept, can be quite important for your place. Online review sites are readily available for your customers to talk about your restaurant's food, your events and get-togethers, and the quality of your service. Social networks are now more far-reaching than ever before and are quite business-friendly. Coupon sites are also becoming quite popular, reaching more of your patrons than you'd probably like to admit. Email lists can also be used to keep your customers updated on events and to give them personalized special offers. It's become extremely important to ensure these kinds of sites be connected directly to your own ideas about your business. We can develop web sites and social networks reflecting what you do, how you do it and what you'd like to do in the future.
Food blogs directly related to restaurants and restaurant chefs and staff are now more interesting for your patrons. They're now used to seeing chefs, sous chefs and busy cooks on television and in motion pictures. They want to know more about you. A personal blog for your main staff puts you more in-touch with those people who make up the better part of your restaurant.

When your patrons are handed a menu or pick one up off a counter or table, the menu reflects not only your various dishes and available beverages, it should also be a reflection and a handheld presentation of your concept. If your place is a beachhouse or a walk-up hot dog stand, a full menu cover would be overkill. A take-out menu, cut lengthwise from a piece of cardstock and printed on both sides, is certainly more appropriate and is easier for customers to tuck away for future reference.
We can design menus as anything from flyers and handouts for a beachhouse or hot dog cart, to wipe-off menus for small diners, to large-scale menus having wine lists and vinyl or leather covers for full-service restaurants. We can also create recipe cards for special dishes so patrons can take select recipes with them, and specially-formatted menus for take-out or to take home.

With the demise of negative-based film photography, the photography of food has suddenly become everyone's hobby. Even those who don't have a digital SLR camera with a macro lens believe their cell phone camera can accomodate the needs of truly mouth-watering images of food, ingredients and food products and packaging.
We put our focus on the food and its environment, ensuring the plated dish or package looks best through the lens to begin with. Once multiple images have been acquired, any necessary post-photography adjustments are made in a professional version of Photoshop to ensure the image has the "punch" it needs, if any.
