That does look nice but it looks more like a poster. The fonts are way cool though, what are they?

The main font is called Gagarin and the smaller text is Agency FB. I'm pretty sure both are available from dafont.com.

Right on. My buddy and I put that one together in an hour or so over a few 22's of Racer 5. It looks like you are pretty decent at design. My friend chris is a painting major at LSU. But he is not a graphic designer--I am an English major. My friend Andrew went to Yale for his master's in GD. I tried to get him to do it for me but he is incredibly busy. Did you take any classes or are you self taught?

p.s. I contacted rogue, I don't really like their beer I wanted a rogue type bottle design. I told them they should brew this IPA and call it the same name. Only mine is the OG, well FG . I want labels so we can drink them in style on inauguration day. I figure after that will be sufficient aging. If anyone is down, I'd like to work on a newer version of it to brew the day after inauguration--like a democratic thing. I want it as bitter as the economy.

lol @ "bitter as the economy"

I have a BFA with a concentration in Illustration [but I also have a degree in Urban and Regional Planning which is what I do for a living].
