1) a friend made it...
2) ...a while ago and
3) his friend is a professional game designer

taken together there is little reason to offer advice because the designer likely won't see the comments and may not revisit a past project that might have been printed and used already.

most importantly, the poster thinks this label is awesome and that his friend is an excellent designer. the latter may be true, but the former is clearly subjective. that it took an hour to make is a comment directed at the relative ease his friend had in making this label. that's somewhat insultive to the efforts others put in without any understanding to the process. hence my criticism.

My bad, I know that comment came off bad after I posted it. Just messing with ya, but at the same time, if your gonna analyze it might as well throw out some suggestions. I liked the label and the impressionistic feel to it. Its all subjective though...unless its my label, then its perfect...always

wanna be friends?

And I disagree with your assesment

Dand, thats a sweet label. Love the covered bridge.
1) that's the beauty of art...its subjective and in the eye of the beholder.
2) me...sensitive...nah...i'm slightly narcissistic and slightly histrionic so i'm rubba and your you're glue...what eva you say bounces off me and sticks to you.

are you keeping the general style going for other brews or making them all different?
Thanks! This was my first label. I plan to create a style in due time. I don't have a hydrometer yet so "approx" seemed appropriate.

you obviously know it is better to have one than not so when you get one, you'll just wonder why you waited..its fun to spin it and get hard numbers! plus it will give you an excuse to drink what you have in the test tube.

but even with a hydrometer, you technically always only have an approximately abv. you can correct for temperature but if you had fancy shmancy lab equipment at your disposal, you would see that its still not 100$% accurate. most people just live with it because its not a big deal.

Thanks man. Wanted something crisp and simple. I was surprised how easy the milk made it to apply.

nah, i make my own labels. i just want a deal on vinyl stickers. it just seems like it would negate the step of having to soak the bottles to get the label off.

the hardest/worst part of this hobby for me...like everyone i am pretty sure is anything to do with bottling...from cleaning all of them to labeling.
