I removed the original label from the bottle and the word “Tequila” has been added by me.

The problem is you can’t simply change the text of the label, but still use the distinctive bottle shape, ribbon, colors, and style of an exact bottle replica of a mainstream brand. You’re using their trade dress, which is also intellectual property.

Anybody who has been into a liquor store can look at that bottle, with or without the label, and immediately identify what brand it is.

You mean like these? :

http://graphicriver.net/item/tequila-fiesta-flyer-template/4779689 http://graphicriver.net/item/cinco-de-mayo-flyer-template/7407753 http://graphicriver.net/item/tequila-night-flyer-template/4071298

If that’s the case then I don’t understand how others are able to use those bottles.

I think maybe like others have said, maybe the title can be a bit more festive font, the model maybe also more festive looking (at the moment looks kind of like a random/general model not really fitting the theme)

But I think it was kind of harsh for a hard reject :(

Learn about composition, typography and hierarchy.
Sure. Sending you some nice music, cheer up! https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=91yrS5PUJBY
SomethingDesign know’s what he’s talking about, but he’s gone too far here. The design isn’t amateurish, but you should take a look at the hierarchy of the text. For example the word “party” is fairly lost, and it’s an important part of the title.

I agree with the customer in that we need to step up the game and do things differently etc not the same old same old but when it comes to adding all the info: drink specials etc .. many sites have that info on their website not on the flyer itself.

http://clubprana.com/spring-break-foam-party-night/

All info drink specials etc is there on the website not the flyer.

Also keep in mind that he/she is only 1 customer. Like I said, I’m not saying the customer is wrong, he has his needs that must be met, but lots of customers would have different needs, and for specifics maybe custom jobs would be best for his needs.

@bigtrini76 – thank you so much for this valuable information. I don’t even know why people are discussing this. What you say should be the only thing all of us should be interested in. How can we make a great item for the people who aactually buy our designs? In fact I think your comments have been some of the most valuable input I’ve seen in all the time I participate here . We should pay you for your feedback, not argue it!!

I think you make a really good point: so much here is really pretty to look at but of no use in the real world.

I am not a flyer designer, so I speak without bias here. I mainly concentrate on corporate IDs and stationery. I do this for one main reason:

In a stationary item I can include an invoice which a real-world customer can actually use, I can include business cards which a real-world customer can actually use, I can include letterheads which a real-world customer can actually use etc etc – because they are all part of one corporate ID package.

If I just submitted business cards, I’d have to make them all flashy and colourful To make them stand out from the rest. If I just sold letterheads or invoices I’d have to add all sorts of colours and icons and fancy layouts so it would get approved as a unique and detailed item.

But which company would actually want to use these to represent themselves? In my experience most companies just want a clean and simple design which makes them look professional.

Another quick precise example: Most business cards here have 6pt fonts. Who can actually read that without a magnifying glass? This is because it looks much prettier on the preview mockup in small fonts, But in real life you can’t actually read anything unless you’re a 12-year-old with perfect eyesight.

Another example: many flyers have Facebook and Twitter icons. But no actual URL! What use is that? Of course it looks prettier to just have the icon. But what good is an icon on a flyer – that’s like saying: I have an email address, but I’m not gonna tell you what it is. Nonsensical!

If I look at poster walls of upcoming events in my city it’s red or black background with giant letters. No gradients, no light effects, no fancy models or clip arts etc

In all of design information is king. With many of the items here graphics are king. I think many of the event orientated authors could make a killing if they concentrated on producing usable work! Or is it really the case that many customers prefer to buy work which is unusable in the real world, but looks pretty in the preview?

Cheers

Chris

Different clubs have different styles though.

Hence different styles, not one size fits all. You were saying not usable? Then Club Prana needs to hire different designer or stop buying from GRiver, lol.

Stars are quite flashy so buyers might be “star” struck lol making them want to buy them. So I think it helps a lil bit, I mean it surely doesn’t hurt, eh.
