Restaurant Templates have now become an essential part of the restaurant-design process. The first restaurant template was invented in the 1970s by Harriger Eben, who is an art director at a famous Swiss watch manufacturing company. He wanted to create a template for his staff in order to save time when designing their work stations. After creating his first template, Eben felt that this would be a perfect way for his team to learn about cooking methods. In the following he shares his story and describes how he created his template in four steps.
The very first step towards creating restaurant templates was to find a template suitable for all types of modern kitchens. Harriger Eben’s team had to find a template that included the basic elements like the temperature control panel, the water dispenser and the resta valve. To ensure that the layout was uniform, his team used a photo illustration of each of the kitchen workstations, so that the entire website could be modeled on these photos. After ensuring that all the images were in place, the rest of the layout was designed according to each picture.
The second step involved in creating templates was to see restaurant menu templates through a number of different publishers. As most people today use word processing software, it was easy for Eben to compare the different design formats. When he found the best match, he sent his template to a professional publisher for the third time, and the final result was amazing.
In the following paragraphs we will see restaurant website templates created using Adobe Indesign. The first thing that we notice in the template is the consistent use of the white background with black text. Even the menus have a consistent background color. The next thing that we notice is that all the elements are in place including the red “sink”. Another interesting thing to note is that the font is in Helvetica.
Now let’s look at how restaurant templates created by Eben Vird is different from other software. First of all, the fonts used are all in Helvetica. This means that the text will be very legible even when the background is changed. Secondly, all the elements in the template have a consistent size, which is again an important aspect of a professional food ordering system.
The template also uses a consistent menu theme including the choice of size, font style and color. All menu items such as salads, pasta dishes, desserts etc. have a consistent appearance on the template. Finally, the software has been designed so that you can easily change the menu for each day or week without having to re-build the entire website.
