Default Label Test

So being the designer i am, i've deided to make a label before i even attempt to brew, i figured this label will at least motivate me to go a step further...



The lion is from my family's coat of arms, and BRAEHAUS is the name i thougth up, BRAE kinda looks and sounds like my last name.

I like the second one with the larger image within the red box. I like the simplicity of the logo. Has a very classic look to it. Nice job.

What are you thinking of brewing for your first batch? Something German?

If brewing a German style for your first batch I'd say stick to an Ale as opposed to a Lager. Something like a Hefeweizen, Kolsch or an Alt would be good.

I am with brewtopia on this, the second is much more appealing because the scaling gives a good proportion of the logo to negative space. Nice, clean and an old-world feel to it.

For some reason I keep envisioning the second one, but with the logo slightly up on the vertical so that it isn't dead center.

Could also use the second one just as it is.. but make it a neck label for the bottles... would be your brewry signature.. then you could make full labels with the same feel and combine brew and brewry into them..

Just a thought.. take it from the guy that has made exactly 0 labels
