Salwa Baquer

Grace 21 Smart Hotel 

A boutique hotel located in Nikunja, Dhaka, Bangladesh (whom I had previously sold several artworks to) sought to refine their identity in the fine-dining industry whilst introducing to the capital, a selection of artfully curated menu in both their restaurant and café. This meant food recipes and photographs that were in themselves, an experience in sensory fascination and soulful satiation.  From recipes, menu designing, food styling to photographs, all coalesce into the savoir-faire of impeccable hospitality. 

Recipe Selection & Menu Design

Cover for the restaurant menu: clean and simple composition, in colours that radiate aristocracy and luxe.

Page 8 of 10 of the multi-cuisine menu, sorted by cuisine & broken down to courses and ornate descriptions. 

Café menu attired in rich tones that entice and simple iconography that leads. Quirky layout and thorough menu for all minds.  

Reverse of its sibling counterpart, this unconventional menu is clothed in tropical tones that persuade the parched to indulge.

Luxury dessert menu composed of lush palette and posh plates to seduce assent & cajole influence.

Created in the reverse colour palette, this custom-order dessert menu is meant to inspire merry and jollity. 

Icecream! Colourful and informally off-the-wall, one must absolutely comply to the temptation.

The stitch, in the shape of a finger-print denotes the anomalous singularity of each work unique to their maker. 

The colour palette for the patterns comprise of commonly used threads for stitching, while the palette of clothing patches & warm whites/ greys are that of fabric typically used as the base cloth.
