No Frills

I completed the No Frills project in response to my experience working as a waitress in a busy bar in Dublins City Centre. It was a self-initiated brief inspired by customers that tested my patience. The final images appear on a menu and act as a set of guidelines for customers during peak hours in bars and restaurants, and are accompanied by brief rhymes depicting scenarios which have occurred, but are certainly not appreciated. I designed The Barcode Menu in order to avoid delay and highlight that a business that uses these menus are operating on a No Frills basis. I created each image on Adobe Illustrator and added a witty poem to help bring the overall project to life.
