Designed in-house at Hofman Hospitality Group.
For this special occasion, New Year’s Eve menu, designer Kim Nguyen at Hofman Hospitality Group took advantage that the menu didn’t have to be updated regularly — as most menus are, requiring the ability to print black on blank canvases — and went with a dark stock (Astro Paper’s Flavours Gourmet Candied Blue Violet, to be specific) and printed it with metallic inks. The result is an elegant and cheerful menu with a great sprinkling of dingbats and crisp typography.
