carolinebuchler got their new menu by running a design contest:
Healthy Cafe Geneva - MENU design
Check out carolinebuchler's Menu contest…
Green Gorilla is a healthy cafe that focuses on superfood. We offer a variety of options like minute-made smoothies, fresh acai bowls, superfood salads (superbowls), healthy snacks, locally roasted coffee and cold-pressed juices - which guarantees the maximum intake of nutrients. At this date, we have 3 cafes : 2 are located in the heart of Geneva (Switzerland), and the 3rd opening soon in Lausanne (Switzerland). Our cafes are modern, cool, and give a very green feel (veggie wall, natural wood, large bay windows). Although clients like to chill in our different decorated spaces, a lot of our clients purchase to take-away. We have recently launched our Green Gorilla App (1st version) available on apple store, from which user are able to order in advance and select a slot to come in our cafe to pick it their order. Ultimately our goal is to offer healthy alternatives to daily busy schedule we face, while aspiring to a relaxed and mindful way of life. Our client base includes both the 16yr old high school student who come hang out at our relaxed cafe while taking instagram shots of their smoothies, as well as the busy JP Morgan trader coming in for a quick caffeine fix or superfood salad over his lunch break. Our clients are smart, healthy, interested, creative types.
What's your vision?
We would like to design a menu for our cafes. So far we've only worked with black boards above our working space, or printed out special leaflets for events we catered. So we would like you to help design a smart and creative menu that would be used for in-house consumption (that we would be able to leave on the tables or when we greet people sitting at the cafe), but also be able to give these same menus to offices around the area (for online orders), to potential events, or even give out on various occasion as marketing leaflets. In terms of adresse : maybe we write Geneva & Lausanne (instead of complete adresses) as we are likely to move location in the future and this would be easier to mainstream between our 3 cafés. Let's keep this open for now. Menu info : I will add a short version of the menu to start with, then once we've arrived to a final design structure we can complete and change with the full menu Contact section : add an email adresse, or contact number. Overall design : The design on the menu should reflect the Green Gorilla logo and vibe. Would like the menu to be black&white to be more cost effective. I will attache some photos of other menus that we can use to get inspired from, and I will also add the logo files. The .jpg IMG_7684 to IMG_7692 will serve as model for the structure, and the rest as inspiration for the design. We like that the structure is a leaflet that is folded/unfolded when you want to see the menu. It is easy to print, very straight forward and relatively well organised in terms of food/drink for the client. Also feel free to get creative wit various interpretation of the gorilla on the menu. (Like on the 'Good Morning Verbier' menu, or like our friends at the goodlifecoffee have done with the bearded man, see picture) Check out our instagram page @greengorillacafe to get what the general atmosphere of our post and products is. Thank you guys ! We are looking forward to work with you.
We are looking to design our menu first, but then a lot of other merchandising for our cafes. So this project might interest you for future work as well.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Menu starts at ¥21,399.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their menu.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
carolinebuchler collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
