Via: Art of the Menu: Bill’s Fried Chicken.
Bill’s Fried Chicken (in Mississippi) features a functional and colorful menu — it doubles as a fan. It’s a great idea and a clever cultural reference to the American South.
The menu items themselves are listed in a clean, straightforward layout on one side of the fan, while the opposite side features hand-drawn graphics of various southern references.

As soon as I laid eyes on this fun logo, I was hankering for a cup of gelato. The free-spirited graphic and bright — but sophisticated — color scheme are very appealing. The same aesthetic is carried through to the store interior and collateral illustrations.
The swoopy (that’s a technical term) script is also nicely paired with the orderly “G E L A T O” that anchors the mark. All together, it’s a strong execution that seems to successfully convey both quality and approachability.
“You can call me Delicious, you can call me Creamy. But please: Just don’t call me ice-cream, ‘perché io sono un gelato!’”
I’m just gonna call a cab to the airport so I can head to Rio.

Quick post: The venerable Allan Peters had Neil Stevens’ work posted at his site and I thought I would share it here too. Stevens’ colorful posters are minimalist, but each thoughtful details and a color palette that brings the concept to life.
Below are a few samples, but many more images can be found at the link!
