Default Whoo, free logo

I did my first set of labels last night, though just some simple black and white text now that I'll soon have more than two brews in the same type of bottle. I mentioned to some friends that I had to figure out some better label design, and one handily volunteered this logo today.

Okay, so not free exactly, I'll just pay it in finished product.

I like it. I wonder how it might look knocked out on black labels giving it an even darker feel.

Not bad inverted either. I wouldn't want to do that with my inkjet, but if I take it in for printing elsewhere it might work well.

The robot looks angrier in black...odd.

Instead of new labels for all your brews how about just changing the background color to indicate the type of brew in the bottle? So far the White one is a WIT and the Black one is a Stout, Orange for an Amber...

It's a neat idea, though I might run out of obvious colors soon in that case. I think I might use an indicative but not strict color coding, and then put the name and date of the brew itself in smaller vertical text against the right side of the logo.

I fiddled around some more and made this layout from the base logo. Planning to put this on my recently bottled backsweetened cider. Also have a version with the color reversed, though the warning label and the brew name/description will remain black text on paper color.

I like it! I think the one side reversed version might add some nice contrast.

Nice designs, I like 'em all. Simple, original, tasteful, humorous; what's not to like? Regards, GF.

I'm chiming in kind of late but the labels look awesome.
