Too many fonts, too many clashing colors, all elements crowd the window. A simple, neutral colored, evenly placed drop shadow would look better than red one that is uneven behind the arched text. The arched text would look better if it matched the window arch. The "Brew Against Rules" text would look better if it were all one color, and even better if it looked like a sign hanging in or just above the window opening. The way you manipulated the colors on the original image makes it look mottled in the corners and weird behind the bars. I have no idea what 106 means, so it adds nothing to the design IMHO. The way the numbers are plastered haphazardly across the window looks sloppy.

Sorry if that was brutal, just attempting to be constructive.

No problem. I'll take your criticism into consideration, at least its honest feedback! I by no means thought this was a final product but a work in progress. 106 is part of the name, its gotta be there...

I like the sign idea and already stated that I need to figure out the colors and fonts....

I originally wanted to put the 106 behind the bars and the hop cone bursting through them. It seems like I just don't have the skills or time to learn to get this right, so its a work in progress.

Anyone wanna take on a graphics project? Can't say i will pay good but some 'yeast samples' in the mail could definitely be in order!
