Default Professional Label Design

A friend of mine (who happens to be a professional graphic artist) designed this beer label for me, and said he'd be happy to take orders from people who wanted beer labels. I don't know what his rates are, but I suspect he'll be cheaper than anybody else - he loves doing this stuff. I'm pretty sure he said he'll take PayPal - can't do credit cards yet. Here's his website where you can check out his portfolio of some of the other work he's done.



I asked him to make this to go on a tap handle, so that's why it's strange dimensions and lacking the other details you might find on a bottle label. Believe me, he can do anything you can conceive. You wouldn't believe what little I gave him to go on so far as concept - and then he emailed me this, which is spot-on what I was envisioning, and more! The dude's gifted.

whaddaya mean? pardon my ignorance (i'm not a graphics guy) - but what's wrong with that - is it that it takes a while to load and scroll through?

I think you will find a great many graphic designers utilize pdf format for presenting their work. It is because it is cross platform/OS and yet has enough bells and whistles to allow them the most control over the layout.
