We are looking to design a single label for our wine. We have uploaded some images and sketches that may be helpful. Basically, we are hoping for a label that is eye-catching, friendly, relaxing and non-pretentious. Note that this will be the only label on the bottle rather than having both front and back labels.
We plan to use the label on all of our wines, which include red, white, rose and fruit wine. The bottle colors will be clear, yellow-green, and dark green. Bottle prices will be under $20. We plan on only changing the wine varietal naming on the bottle for each specific wine.
Some firm requirements we need on the label:
1) The label must include the standard government warning below and must be at least 2mm tall. The color choice of the font must contrast with the background colors so it is legible. The words GOVERNMENT WARNING must also be in bold font.
"GOVERNMENT WARNING: (1) According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects. (2) Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems."
2) The label must have the words "Table Wine", "750ml", and "Contains Sulfites" with the same font height and color contrast requirements as in (1).
3) The label will be 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide (UPDATED)
4) It must have the "Blackhawk Winery" on the label.
5) It must state "Produced and bottled by Blackhawk Winery Sheridan, Indiana"
6) The label must have the wine name (eg. Merlot, Traminette, etc...)
7) The end product must be in a format that we can edit the text when we add different wine products. (eg. photoshop or gimp type of format)
The artistic things we are looking for your help with
* Background image and any image manipulations.
* Whether or not to use a border.
* Positioning (and orientation) of the text on the label
* Choice of font, size and color
* Feel free to arrange, reposition or alter the uploaded logo.
* Anything else that we aren't thinking about...
You should feel free to use any, all or none of the images provided and use them in any way you want. The mockup I put together is merely a vehicle that visually captures some of what we are looking for. (FYI, I'm an engineer and have no artistic talent, so treat the mockup for what it is!)
