I know the name already exists, but I had my brother redo for a Belgian Dark Strong I made for X-mas presents.

Can you tell me where you picked up your images (in particular, the yeast)? I'm adding these to my next label, but have struggled getting any vector based image of yeast and couldn't come up with much in terms of search terms that would lead to something usable. Any help would be appreciated.

These are my first two labels I entered into my first competition. The IPA didn't carbonate very well, so that one didn't do too well, but the vanilla porter got some great responses!

I just realized that I insinuated that I entered the labels into a competition. I hope we all understand I was referring to the beer, not the labels. They were just for show! However both labels got good feedback as well!

Ahahaha! So, the plot thickens! I too am a designer. Once upon a time I worked as a Sr. Art Director for one of the biggest advertising agencies in the world. But I dropped out and now I drive a bus. lol. Less stress. Now I only do freelance design work, but it's no longer my day-job as it was for 15 years. I only take on projects I am personally interested in and/or feel a connection to. My design and art has gone back to being my personal fun-time instead of my 60+ hour a week job. The best way to kill your creative juices is to work for a bunch of suits.

I think Banksy said it best when he said; "The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little."

Anyways, I digress. The font you're looking for is a free font called Dirt2 Soul Stalker. I got my copy from http://www.1001freefonts.com/Dirt2Soulstalker.php

That's awesome. Thanks for the font link. I'm one of those young burgeoning designers. But I have no ambitions of going to work for suits. I do freelance. Unfortunately not only jobs that interest me. That would be nice. I'm hoping to score a job doing design for one of the hundred breweries we have in the Philly area. I'm interning at one right now. I work at a homebrew shop for my day job. Not a bad combo. I'm never thirsty...
