Hello and Welcome to another post of Design playground. My work keeps me busy so I’m not able to focus much on the improvement of the blog or its social pages. But I’m doing what I can to spread the knowledge I know and share my love for Design.

Today I’m going to talk about a very special template. It holds a special place in my heart.

Ladies and Gentlemen , I give you, GnT’s Restaurant

Why is this template special to me ? Because of the G in the name

G means Gurinder. He’s one of my friends from college

The Story Behind GnT’s

It was my final year of BCA. We had learnt about visual basic ( .NET seemed complicated to me back then ; still does ). So Gurinder and I decided to show a project on a restaurant. I had downloaded the project called “Rupali Restaurant” and decided to use it as the base. But things didn’t go so well. Neither the project nor the partnership. Forget the design , even the functions were all screwed up. Despite all of this, I still knew that it held a bond that I could not withdraw from. I even redesigned “Rupali’s” logo.

Well I never could get the .NET code to work, But I spent my free hours from work making this template. This template is special for another reason. I made this template literally from SCRATCH. Sure I used a restaurant base template, But it felt like building a house or inventing something. At times frustrating, but always exciting.

I wish i could show the comparison between my first draft and this one, but unfortunately I don’t have the first draft any longer. But anyways, I’m proud of what I made.

Thanks Guri – you’re the inspiration behind this

See ya next time
