Default Smokey Boggart Label

I am starting to work on a new label for my smoked porter. The Smokey Boggart.

I was thinking something like this...



I am not sold completely though. Any ideas, this or completely different would be great.

A boggart is a gnome, imp, or spirit who is up to no good. So I want to label to follow that spirit.

Thanks,
Justin

I would lighten up the smoke, not so thick. Spin it sideways and have it behind/infront of the lettering, not covering, just fogging the lettering a little.
The font is great for the name., Love black and white labels

I like it a lot. The only thing I'd suggest is changing the font color to make it stand out just a bit more...seems to blend in with the smoke behind it. Maybe just adjust the shadowing to white or a blurred effect?

PS...where'd u get the smoke backdrop pic?

How's this?



The smoke is from google image search for "smoke". I found a couple really good ones.

I like it too. I think I will print it on a clear adhesive label...

doesn't sound like your a photoshop guy, so I won't get super techy, but I would change the contrast of the smoke, reduce some of the black waves to air it out a bit more. I would make the brewery font bigger so people can read a bit better who made it! Take your credit
