The Thurman Cafe

Overview

See the link below for videos and other guidance
http://www.thethurmancafe.com/design

The Thurman Cafe is a family owned restaurant that has some of the tastiest burgers in the country. We are located in Columbus, Ohio and we have people travel from across the country to taste one of our signature burgers. Our menu is full of burgers made with 3/4 pounds of beef, piled high with delicious toppings, and good to the last bite. Type thurman cafe into google to see what restaurant review websites have said about us. Any Man V. Food fans out there may remember Adam's segment on the Thurman Burger last year. If you notice he wears our T-shirt on other episodes of Man V. Food(he loved it so much).

Alot of other restaurants, especially burger joints, feel too corporate or canned. What you get at the Thurman is an old fashioned Americana experience.

Take a look at the picture of the burger on the front page of the existing website. This is what we are all about.

Enough about us, let's talk about what it is in it for you.
As a designer, you would love nothing more than to have your design seen by people from across the country.

We have a nationwide fan base of avid eaters and buyers that could see your wonderful work if you are selected.

We love to give credit where credit is due and would gladly place a link back on our main page to a design portfolio page of your choice.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our target audience is between 25-45. They are middle class and live in and around the Columbus, Ohio metro area. They enjoy good beer, a great burger, and a fun atmosphere to watch sports.

Our demographics have shifted somewhat since we were featured on Man v. Food.

What has always stayed the same is peoples' love of our burgers.

Requirements

We are looking for a design that reflects our great burgers and allows people to easily find out more information about the Thurman. Our main goal is to sell more t-shirts through the website, along with other merchandise.

1. We need a layered .psd design along with any fonts used to make the mockup.
2. Pictures of our burgers should be the focus. Type thurman burger into google images
3. We have ideas already and have created some wireframes to make your jobs easier.
4. We have attached .eps version of the logo
5. Black, Red, Grey and white are the main colors used at the Thurman. We would like to see more red integrated with the design.
6. Please use the attached files as starting points. Watch the included video links as needed.

Please do not use any stock images or photos. We will add more original photos to the design once we receive it from you.

Finally, pretty websites are great and all, but if our customers can't find what they need it won't work. As you design, we will provide more specific guidance about navigation and function. The attached wireframes should provide a basis for your work.

Good luck and do not hesitate to ask questions or seek clarification. We find the more frequent and detailed the communication the better!
