We need a label designed for one of our special release beers. The beer is a bourbon barrel aged, Russian Imperial Stout.
The name of the beer is "Cease to Love". It is a historical reference to a visit made by the Russian Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovich Romanov in 1872. The story goes that the Duke came to New Orleans following a burlesque performer who caught his eye in St. Louis.
We need a label that includes our logo, the name of the beer, necessary warning labels as required by Federal law, and an image that captures the back story of this beer.
We are looking for something vintage and tasteful. While Mardi Gras can be a design element, the back story is really about a guy who decided to go to New Orleans in pursuit of a girl and it just happened to be during Mardi Gras.
Not sure if we want any illustrated figures on the label or not. Perhaps just some nice script and some visual elements associated with Mardi Gras, New Orleans and the promise of romance.
The bottle label should by 4" high x 8" wide. This will allow for the Federal health warning to be present as well as a bit of space for the back story on the beer, our logo, etc.
