Finding the right colors for a set of beer labels can involve research into what’s worked before. Using the edition of BarTender 2016 label software that’s best for your company can help you add capabilities to your previous design process. Revamping a label design can be a complicated process that requires new tools that are up-to-date and easy to use.
On Milwaukee recently looked at several examples of local beer labels from the past decades that managing editor Bobby Tanzilo described as “beautiful.” Some of the trends seen among many of these examples include bright colors, old-world imagery and distinctive fonts. Several also mention the name Milwaukee specifically, either in the brand of the beer or in some descriptor (such as Amber Glo’s claim to be “Milwaukee’s Finest.”).
“Remote triggers present a more streamlined type of production.”
In some ways, not that much has changed. Creative Bloq’s recent list of “brilliant beer label designs” features several similar uses of eye-catching color and European lettering. Grimm Brothers Magic Mirror and St. Stefanus draw from years of tradition to make its arched, angular words stand out.
How can BarTender 2016’s new features help design efforts? This latest version from developer Seagull Scientific allows users to access documents through a new Print Portal with updated browser and device support.
The software also grants the company script editing functions with flowing navigation, according to the official product site. Printing can be set up to correspond with remote triggers to present a more streamlined type of production. As an added bonus, the same software is adaptable to other design tasks, including printing barcode labels for multiple products.
