Default Advice needed on this label.

I could use some advice. My son says this label is too plain. Plus he recommends replacing the ball with a hop cone and calling it "Hop Kick". Any opinions?

That logo is actually very minimal, I like it a lot. love how you made the lettering imperfect. I think it is fine how it is.

The label is really nice. That being said, I like your son's hop kick idea a lot. I would go with that and make the hop green to contrast the old school earth tones.

I like the label as is. The hop kick idea is also fun, but might give people the wrong impression, depending on how hopped up your pilsner is. By the way, is it CyClops Hombrew, or CyLcops Homebrew? I think you have a typo.

I think it looks just fine. Labels don't always have to be busy.

Very nice! I'd stick with your original label, though the idea of kicking the hop is interesting.

I'd say the colors could be changed.

I personally would replace the...

Orange-ish middle background with an eggshell/off-white
Brick Red border with a brighter, possibly fire-engine red
And darken the outer background with a darker, olive color, to add contrast.

See, if it were ME I'd use a picture of Doug Flutie....



I like the minimal look, but did you mean to misspell "cyclops"?
