Default My first layout

I have used photoshop before, but im afraid if the look of this layout is too "futuristic".
I copied Guinness a bit.

Here it is:


What do you think?

33cl is the volume, 33cl = 3,33dl = 0,33l. So it's a basic bottle of beer here in Finland.

Looks interesting, and the suppliers of black ink cartridges and/or black laser printer powder salute you!

It looks like some wine labels that I have seen.
Clean, simple, nicely done.
I agree that you are going to crank through a lot of ink/toner
if you are going to do any major quantity of these,
but, that being said,
sometimes you do something because it is what you really want,
not because it is the most cost effective way of doing it.

I like it. The black with the red and white really make it pop out.

Feedback from my SWMBO...sorry dude. Please don't flame me...SMBO!

She doesn't like the year. she says lose the year and center the vandas or move it to the bottom under ABV. Take the line with the arrow and place it below the Imperial Stout. Bold the type if you are going to use that font. She says that the red needs to be less orange and more red. More like the USSR flag color or the vermilion red in the Chinese flag. Other than that she likes it. She really is nice.

She does buy a lot of beer and she does own her own business...

If it makes you feel better I like it.

As I already said, I like the design...
that being said, let me address the points the last poster made

this will improve the balance and symmetry of the design.

same as above.... improved symmetry...
this is a huge issue...
in a clean, simple design like yours, it is even more important

The font is a bit thin, so bolding it might make it a bit more vibrant

this one I disagree on, the red looks just fine on my monitor, but for that, you will probably have to base it upon how it prints, not how it looks on any one particular monitor...

ok, i double checked the red, the chinese flags i was able to download all use the hex code ff0000, in other words, pure red...
you are just slightly off from a pure red, at fe0002, it is a slight variation, but it is there.

A little less than 12 oz, for those of us who don't do metric.

I like the simplicity of the label, but I do agree that it's a bit asymmetric. Center the name at the top and the year somewhere underneath it.

The red is too vibrant on my monitor, but I bet it prints nicely.
