What are you trying to do with it bro? To be honest, I think it looks pretty darn good already!

I appreciate the positive feedback! I'm not looking to pay for anything I was just putting a feeler out to anyone who enjoys doing things like this to help me out.

If I ever start a brewery that sells beer for profit I will look into a professional and keep you in mind!

The tree in the lightbulb is perfect. And I'm not an artist or even artistic, but...

1) A seamless background might be better. Lots of high-quality ones at the following....

http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/textures/

2) Can you tone down or make transparent the pure-white boundary on the text?

Very nice looking as it is though.

I actually REALLY dig the kind of ransom note-ness of this design. MAJOR improvement over the original (which BTW isn't bad either) Seems very "with the times" to me, while still being very original itself. Looks like it could be a record label.

Also, yes, i do make up my own words from time to time i.e. "ransom note-ness"

Thanks again for all the feedback! Believe me if I could make it seemless I would I'm just not good at doing the graphic design thing even though the ransom note-ness is what I was going for

I actually put an add on craigslist to see if local artists and graphic designers would send me their ideas for a few free home brews and have received several labels already for free! Kind of cool.

Great idea about posting on Craigslist in exchange for some homebrew. I might try that cuz my post on here did not seem to generate much interest.
