Mr. V’s Restaurant
A restaurant located in Caldwell, Idaho a town of about 40,000, USA. Just outside of Boise, Id. which has a population of about 250,000. We are a mix of old school agricultural area and new high-tech companies, with a huge emphasis on outdoor activities and quality of living.
The restaurant is adorned with two separate and distinct family dining experiences:
- a 50 style diner with sit down bar, black and white checkered floor and pictures of James Dean, Elvis and other 1950’s – 1960’s items
- an informal dining room with a warmer feel. The dining room is carpeted with in a multi-colored darker blue and warm touches of country living
We are seeking two pages in Photoshop format; a home page, and an interior page of a menu. No coding required.
Necessary files attached to bottom of brief. There are additional photos located: http://gallery.me.com/bilstal#100087
During the week we cater to office workers and farmers / blue collar workers around the area for breakfast and lunch. For dinner, we cater mostly to retired couples that enjoy the old-fashioned meat and potatoes meal or the breakfast we serve all day. We also pick up some families for dinner that like the informal family feel.
During the weekend when we are running on all cylinders our typical customer could be and is anyone that lives within a 5 - 10 miles radius. Large groups of families of all ages and income sections as well as couples and singles.
Logo is provided. Colors need to be red, white and blue to go with the logo, but can have other colors that are in our décor: like the black and white tile floor of our diner or the maroon wall in our dining room. Site should be about 900px wide. There will be a flash piece that will show images of the site. For the design purposes, use a static image.

Sites we dislike:
http://www.flyingpie.com/: too much clutter, can’t figure out what/who they are. It’s a pizza joint, but you almost think they are selling beer taps.
http://elmers-restaurants.com/: Too plain, small print, would not know what style they were until all images were looker at. Dislike about this site: the reverse print may be hard to read? Site is narrow.
