MCCC Ad Design Students Design Wine Labels for Terhune Orchards


When 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.

Gary, 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.
