Wine labels created by Liz Brownell’s graphic design students were revealed on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at a reception at the FLCC Viticulture and Wine Center in Geneva.
Students of Paul Brock, associate professor of viticulture, voted on the labels, selecting one to be used on wine produced and bottled by students.
The winning label, “Imprint,” was created by Kyla Bruno of Fairport, a 2015 graduate of Penfield High School. The runner up was created by Robin Pena of Rochester; click here to view it. Students Daelyn Doane of Honeoye Falls and Katelyn Springer of Phelps were also finalists.
All told, 19 labels were exhibited at the reception, which also included a presentation by Niagara Label of Akron, which is donating its services to make the labels that will be used for the 2017 student-produced wine.
