-the IIPA is a little hard to read. Especially the first I since it butts up to the background yellow. consider moving it down, or decreasing the height of the letters so you have a little bit of black border
-The small yellow reverse text is a little hard to read, at least at this size. You could make it slightly bigger, or just add a stroke.
i like the label. looks like it could be a tasty beer and the label would stand out good amoungst the mass of beer at my local liquor store like a bumble bee. i just drank a stone-subliminal self righteous, yum!!! speaking of black iipa
Well the point is that it isn't just another ellipse with a ribbon (not to say that there aren't a ton of great labels with that classic design, including on these boards). But the lack of a clever name definitely does make it seem cheesier...
Besides, can't do much else without artistic talent!
Eddculus, I think you're right about the small text, it'd have to be like an 11x17 label for it to be legible...
