Here's one for you,

a digital menu system using Adobe Animate®

 

 

 

 

 

 

(with some help from Illustrator and Photoshop)

 

Jimmy's Grotto, a Waukesha institution, had a limited space and a pretty big menu, and well, Here is a big solution!

 

This board not only shows the listings with updatable item prices, it also lets the restaurant customer know how the main products look by showing photos that change with every menu topic. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this'll be a hundred thousand!

 

The "Jimmy" board also showcases the brand while highlighting a specific product from each menu face shown with snappy, animated graphics.

 

It gets better! Since it's Adobe Animate®, we were able to program the board to work a device to control the action dynamically so the customer can pause and skip over areas of the menu by an input from a button on the counter or in a floor mat!

Your Brand, It's your symbol, your logo, your colors, how you are identified  and remembered at a glance. It effects your website, your print items, your message and even your companies culture. Consider a new look for your branding program or evolve your current symbol to something new.

An Avatar to be an ambassador for you online, a character to be part of your brand or to represent a product or service. Maybe a caricature of your staff to make a nicely done "about us" page on your website or publication.

Printed items can be in many forms, all valuable to your marketing efforts. It could be as simple as a business card or as comprehensive as a presentation folder, brochure or magnetic calender. I can give you a quote as-well-as ideas.

Your website interface may be your primary marketing effort. It is accessible by the world and can be the beginning of all of your print, branding and advertising efforts. It all starts with your interface. Here are a few recent projects

Illustrate your ideas and bring them to life, information can be made more entertaining and understood, products that don't yet exist are on display, technical details can be shown, expensive photo shoots can be avoided...all with good illustration.

Photo Retouching your photographs that are not quite there, it may be too expensive to re-shoot or maybe just impossible. A much better solution is to simply retouch the photo to get it where you need it.

Display Work The Point-of-Purchase is where the customer is ready to buy. These concepts are placed right in the marketplace itself. This specialty uses creative design and (mostly), plastic polymers, various molding techniques and good placement that display aspects of the products to make the buying experience a lot more informative.

Hello, my name is Chris Aykroid

and I am a  designer/blogger.

 

I have been passionate about graphics...since collecting stickers as a kid. I think it's always fascinating how form, shape and color come together to make a stunning, (or even not so much), visual image.

 

I have been creating logos, web, print graphics, displays and interfaces for the Point of Purchase, Sign, Print and Web business' for many different customers for over... well, lets just say that it's a little while.

 

I use the Adobe suite of products, Photoshop and Illustrator as well as Adobe Animate and Muse.

 

Is there any way I can help with the production of your product or service? I can work on-site or remotely.

 

Have a look over some of my work, I have selected some of my favorite projects to show...most fairly recent. If you have a question or want to get a hold of me for some other reason, use the contact form and I will get right back to you.

 

Thanks for taking a look!
