Small businesses are usually in need of great effort to make sure it stabilises and expands into a big business. One of the core efforts is to market and promote the products and services it offers.Teardrop banners, as well as other banners, are usually one of the easiest and most efficient ways to use in promoting the products and services. They have helped businesses in many ways like being contributions to the business growth.

For my portfolio website I want to show a whole range of graphic design products I can do.

With all the designs I was trying for a modern and engaging look.

Japanese Restaurant Banner

The name for the restaurant is “Koi” like the fish, which is in the background of the banner.

When choosing and deciding on colours I always colour pick from the photos presented in the image.

The type used is Avenir interchanging between sizes type like Light/Medium/Bold.

With the styling and composition I wanted it as simple as possible, but still engaging the viewer. The layout should evoke fans and dancing figures something evoking Japanese culture.

I have also created small table menus to complement the project.

Coffee Shop Banner

I am aware that having a good banners for for your business is crucial and it is the only way how to promote and attract customers passing by.

It will be tough to find a modern restaurant or coffee shop that does not use banner displays in one form or another. Their ability to make any outlet look more attractive and professional is well known. Most restaurant and cafĂ© owners have realised that their potential goes much beyond just looks and ambience.

They are very effective sales tools and can be used to attract customers, improve sales, and advertise new items. They are also useful in organizing the outlet and increasing customer comfort. Read on and discover some exciting ideas with coffee shop banners.

Banner stands are low cost solutions that can help with:

1: Attracting customers on the street and encouraging them to walk in.
2: Window displays and wall decor.
3: Organizing the outlet and seating areas with partitions. This is especially useful in outdoor seating areas.
4: Providing information inside the outlet, for example, the menu, store timings, new items or special offers.

Attracting Customers Into The Outlet

Banners can make your outlet visible to customers even from some distance on the street. Fairly large signs are visible even from a block away when placed at a height.

A strategically placed display stand on the pavement that displays your best selling menu items or specials will encourage passers-by to walk in and try something. The vertical A-frame Pop up banner (which is the one I am showing) is a good option for this purpose. It can be weighted down for stability and its two banners will allow you to display colourful graphics or messages to attract people coming from either direction.

Swimming classes banner

Swimming class banner is here to promote a healthy life style. I wanted to create something inviting for my potential clients.

In this project I have included as much informations as possible. The tone of this work is to show something which can be very scary for some in not complicated way. Displaying a child and old person without fear of the activity.

The elements within the banner should evoke bubbles in water. The colours are playful and happy with the side for children and for adults I have used more serious palette.

I wanted to show photographs of real people taking the classes to demonstrate accessibility of the classes.
