JenX provided the best design early on in the process. She was responsive and made revisions and also made suggestions of her own to better the design. It was a pleasure working with her and I would use her for future projects.
Great design work, got it right the first time! And was very helpful with providing various graphics file formats I needed. Great to work with!
I hired this designer for the new flyers of my dance studio and it did a great job, followed my requests in detail and was very patient when it comes to any changes/revisions. Thank you!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We make Soju, a Korean spirit similar to a watered down vodka. our audience is the Asian American market ages 21-35. This spirit is sold predominately in restaurants and bars and not out of liquor stores.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I would like a bottle logo. The labels are small..3,5" wide by 4.25" tall. The bottles are 375ml. about 12oz. My product is called "Moon" soju.
I would like a full moon on the label. The word "soju" must appear and "product of USA" should also be included. Most existing soju labels are very simple in context and include in small print what grains are used in the spirits. We will be using "American grains" and our alcohol content should say "Alcohol 20% by volume" There are other standard Gov't requirements that must be printed on the label and we will put those on the back label, as with the bar code tag.
The label design can go any direction...whimsical, industrial, natural...whatever. Eventually, there will be many flavors and will need a space on the front to include indicate whether it is "bourbon flavored or watermelon flavored or classic.
I'm imagining a label with a full moon in the upper right corner of the label, the word "Moon" somewhere across the top, "soju" in smaller print below "Moon" and the moon . We can have images of a sub-creature like a frog or something that might become our mascot. There can be some script in Korean (it's artistic looking) that might say our company motto "Drink like you mean it".
Other than that, let it rip.
maybe Google Korean soju bottles and see what is already out there.
