Brochure Methodology Target: The target is very wide since is for anyone that likes food, even kids, but they would have to come with their parents if they are underaged. Mainly is for food lovers, people who feel joy when eating and not only they eat with the mouth but also with the eyes, that is why is very important to have pictures of some of the dishes they are going to eat. Colors: The idea for this brochure is traditional Portuguese food, that is why the background looks rustic, to give the idea of traditional food.
