Default Placencia Brew House

Think I'm going to change the bottom text so that it's in all caps and have it say "BREW HOUSE" instead of Brewery. It's still a work in progress though.

I think it might look better with out the banners there and fill the space with text.
Are the lines there suppose to make it look like the label had been folded? if so it should show over all the image and be a dark gray instead of black, a little thicker line that kinda fads on the edges.. nice work so far.

Does the crest have a meaning or is it just something you came up with?

Wow. That is a tough one. Not so certain I would want teh "Placencia" to be so prominent. Just me I am sure but, like scanning a beer shelf, when I scanned the thread title it said something entirely different that I would not want associated with my beer.

+1 on placenta. My first thought was of a placenta beer... Not a good thought, sorry!

lol, I'm used to it. Placencia is my last name, and the center image is actually the ancient coat of arms of the Placencia family.

Placencia is an awesome little town in Belize. When I saw your brewery name I immediately thought of the great time I had in Placencia. In fact, I was expecting to see palm trees and coconuts instead of a castle and helmet on your logo.

I like the crest but agree that the banners hinder the label. Perhaps a better typeface and the words right on the background would provide the possible "framing" of the label you are trying to create with the banners.

Placencia is also a town in SoCal. "The Bruery" in Placentia won two medals at the world beer cup this year.

Yeah I grew up in the high desert in SoCal and have passed by that city many times. It's said that the names Placencia/Placensia/Placentia all go back to the same family. Whether that's true or not I don't know. Yeah I think I'll ditch the banners and make some custom text in there.
