'Cafe Revival'

More display boards for 'Cafe Revival' Bristol:

These three items were made out of reclaimed wood which I can assure you made the job challenging to paint onto. But it's this reason why they have such character to them and each bit was painted directly onto the planks so that all the text fits the wood and is still functional even with cracks and wobbles on the surface. The challenge with this was to make menu boards that were still completely functional, still had black board surface and did not loose any writing space. This criteria lead me to use the same functionality of the previous board but make the boards material the interesting element rather than focusing on any non practical typography or decorative touches. I can't wait to see them hung up in the finishing place!
