Me new summer beer label - please critique
 
2 Attachment(s)

I just made this one up tonight. Took a while, but making labels is almost as much fun as making beer! Gimp is pretty powerful too, and I'm finally starting to get the hang of it (I think)

McLaren's Landing is where a good friend of mine lives on the beach, and because I'm off on parental leave until August, I plan on spending alot of days at his place over the summer.

If anyone has any suggestions for the label, or the neck label, or my logo, or anything at all, please let me know, I want my beer to look super cool when I'm hanging out at the beach with a bunch of people.

Thanks alot!

James

On the helpful critique side, there's a lot going on with your logo and I can't really make out what it is on the computer.
It was supposed to be a family crest, but you're right, seems a little too busy on this smaller scale.

Here is a re-worked logo. I tried to make it look like it's on tapestry or cloth or something, and added a drop shadow beneath it to try to increase the depth of the picture (there are already shadows on the beer name).

Does this seem a little bit better?
