Hey guys. Im a new memeber here and new to these programs by Affinity. Anyways I've dabbled a bit in the past in illustrator and inDesign but pretty much forgot everything. So now im getting back into Graphic design simply as a hobby but this time around on Affinity.

My question here is which affinity program should i use to create a Restaurant Menu? I was thinking of using Publisher. Is that the right tool to use? Any good tutorials for similar ideas made on publisher?

 

Thanks in advance. -_-

Well the first step is working out what content you want in the menu, images etc, sourcing or taking images so you have material to place into the document, you can have placeholder boxes but having images ready is always a good idea. 

Work out what colours you want to use

What style are you going for? fun, classy, funky, wacky?

Fonts play a major role so choose fonts wisely

I'll have to make a tutorial on creating a Menu in Affinity Publisher as there don't appear to be any around.
