Leverage Creative BrandingThe most important thing you will do when creating your beer’s labels is to design attractive labels that stand out. One sure way to get lost in the beer shuffle is to deliver a boring, unremarkable presence. The craft beer industry as a whole values quality over price – and your label should convey that message. Craft beer drinkers are generally receptive to designs that diverge from the mainstream. Often more educated about beer than the average beer consumer, craft brew consumers tend to have a general idea of the ingredients and processes that go into the production of a good beer – so use that knowledge to your advantage. Think about the use of bold colors, fun designs, and easy-to-read wording.
Make it ClearTake into account the style and type of beer you are creating labels for. Is it a lager or an ale? Additionally, your label should make clear what type of beer is in the bottle – IPA, Porter, Stout, Amber? Come up with a catchy, easy-to-remember name, and be sure your label includes both the name and style and type of beer if it’s not obvious in the name itself.
Your Craft Beer Lineup Should Be CohesiveIf you’re creating labels for more than one beer under one brand, you’ll want to make sure the labels are different for each type of beer, but cohesive in the branding. Look at Rogue, Great Divide, Flying Dog, and Ommegang for examples of different beer labels that clearly belong to the same brand. Similar imagery, colors, and fonts are examples of elements that will help your branding to remain consistent.
