I've been toying with label designs lately. And name changes for my home "brand". Here's an early sample of one of the designs.
The skull isn't a definite, but I like it because it's somewhat subtle and goes well with the old look and feel of the label. My wife didn't even pick up on the fact that it was a skull until I pointed it out. That's sort of what I was going for. The old look and feel will most likely stay. It goes well with a swing top bottle.
I can easily change the style of beer on the label and keep them all consistent. I wanted to incorporate some kind of colour that visually identifies the style, but so far I can't find anything that works well with the rest of the label.
The name "beergasm" was an afterthought moments before I uploaded it, since it's the name of my blog. As much as I liked "Billy Rigg", it doesn't feel enough like me. Another option is going with my last name: Paterson.
