I just got home from meeting a potential client for my practical project exam. I chose a restaurant nearby where I sometimes order my dinner. The restaurant is owned by two brothers originally Moroccan and one of which is not in Norway right now.  So I will be hearing from them this coming week but the one I talked with said that he can’t seem to find any reason why they wouldn’t allow me to use them as my project. It may somehow help them to get more people to dine there as they took over the place in 2008 and is trying a new concept. As of now, they lack a menu, brochures and maybe business cards. Their logo is established already which is good so I can just affix it to their future menu.

I got in contact with my client yesterday and asked for another meeting so we can talk about their preferences on the products we will be designing. I believe the designing should involve them and their staff so there will be unity in the outcome and will accurately describe their restaurant/cafe. Unfortunately, Sundays are busy days so they offer to meet on the coming week. I suggested that I will drop by and just give them some questionnaires so they will have time to talk about it and will be prepared by the time we meet. So now I will prepare my questionnaire and will post it here.

Second meeting with my clients and we’ve discussed their answers to the questionnaire I have given them last Sunday. I have been in contact with one of the printing press in Kongsvinger yesterday and found out that it would take around two days to print my work if it’s been prepared for printing/preflighted already.  I have asked about the available materials they have but unfortunately, the receptionist wasn’t aware of this part of printing so they will get in touch with me within this week. Back to my client, the logo is an absolute NO for changing. As they are more interested in acquiring more customers now than a change of branding, they would rather spend money on brochures and menu list.

Discussing the questionnaires proved to be helpful as it helped narrow down the issues. Some of these are:  Their highest priority is having a menu list, brochure as they don’t actually have a major form of advertisement. The business card isn’t really a need but I would be making this and probably print it on a match or magnet and make them a calendar for the year 2013.
