Ad Design Students Design Wine Labels for Terhune Orchards
Gary Mount began planning a vineyard at his family farm, Terhune
Orchards in Princeton, he thought about the importance of a great
wine label, and asked Ad Design students at Mercer County Community
College for help. Designing a label for the "Terhune Orchards
Vinyard and Winery" became a class project during the semester
just completed for Patrick Lyons' Advertising Design Typography
class. Pictured, from left, are Ad Design Program Coordinator Tina
LaPlaca, Dean Judith Ehresman, Senior Adjunct Faculty Member Patrick
Lyons, MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue, Gary Mount, and the students
with the top designs, Karen Steimle, Michal Labno and Matt Rybinski.
his wife Pam, and the Mount family were very pleased with the results,
and brought the designs home for their family to evaluate. The Mounts
will give each winning student a $50 gift certificate to the Terhune
Orchards store, where they plan to display the entire class's designs.
If one of the student designs is ultimately selected for their label,
the student will be professionally compensated. The orchard hopes
to begin making wine next fall, and has planted four varietals, cabernet
franc, chambourcin, vidal blanc and traminett.
