I decided instead of starting a bunch of new threads each time I want you guys to look at and critique my labels I would start putting them in one thread!

I am not a graphic designer, nor do I play one on TV. I love fiddling with Inkscape and come to this community to get some feed back to help me make my labels better.

... and without further ado here are my previous labels:

Label 1: This was my first brewing of my smoked porter. I had not yet learned about inkscape and used vectormagic online to convert to vectors. Not great but it was a fun label anyway.


Label 2: For my Razzmatazz wheat. I like this label and format and plan to use it when not inspired by something else.


Label 3: This is my logo badge for my brewery


Label 4: My brewery name plate. I use this as my brewery label on most new labels now


Label 5: 414 East Side Wheat. I made this for a 312 Urban wheat clone


Label 6: Smokey Boggart Porter new style


Label 7: This is the label for random meads. My brother and I like to keep a bottle of mead around and open. When we open a new bottle of mead we pour some into our amalgamead bottle. lol it is just a running joke about vikings drinking random mead


Label 8: And the newest Smokey Boggart label


Label 9: This is my stock mead label. I use different color paper and change the date to the brew day of the mead.


So those are all my preexisting labels. Now onto some new stuff.....

Here is my first shot at my new IPA label



I brewed this at the beginning of a marathon brew day and watched the sunrise as I was mashing out. What a great day!

Any suggestions would be very welcome!!!!!!!

I really like the IPA label - I wouldn't change a thing. Is that label color close to the color of the beer?

Thanks guys!

The beer is not that golden, I am not sure of the color yet, I just liked how vibrant that yellow was. It always changes and has to be adjusted once it hits the printer anyway though.
