taking the minimalist approach is always much harder than it sounds.

comments and critiques are welcomed.
is it too much or too little?

I think it's absolutely awesome.

Picturing it on a bottle makes me think that is an awful lot of white space, though, so I'd either:
1) add a red pinstripe around the whole thing about 1/4" in from the edges, or
2) just cut the label off at a 2" width instead of 4.5" or so for a unique skinny label.

Nice work!

I think it would look very cool on a acid etched bottle.

I think that'd be fantastic. It's really hard making labels look new or unusual, but a minimalist thin label with your (really nice) design on it would be cool as tits.

I agree! Just plain glass with your minimal logo on there. Would look KILLER!

Another vote for a skinny label - that would be very cool and pretty distinctive! Love the logo, too. Good story behind it?
