For the last few week we have been working on the wine label project. Our class was separated into groups, each given a winery to create labels for. I was in a group of five and given the Molinari Family Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills, as well as a packet descripting some facts about the winery and the aesthetic requests. Right away me and my group began to discuss possible logos, layouts, and creative opportunities. Here are some of my sketches during the brainstorming process.
As you can see, we went over many possibilities. There was a lot of experimenting with the logo and how all 5 bottles would tie together to create a set. I learned very early in this project ho important it is for everyone to have a say in decisions we made so we used a voting system to express our opinions and possible critique in a respectful way. The over all goal for me was to ensure everyone to felt proud and connected to the final product. It is not the easiest thing to work with 5 different with different styles and visions but overall it was an amazing learning experience and i had a great time working with my fellow classmates.
I also learned a lot about the design. Going into this, I didn't full understand the amount of steps it takes to create a wine label it was a lot of going back and forth and back and forth. I really enjoyed having the Gatto Rivera team come in to help us take our labels to the next level.
I loved this project and I felt I learned a lot in the process and I would absolutely do it again.
I started Christmas break by hanging out with my friends and working on my self portrait for a school application. Then I got Covid and spent a lot of time in my room taking care of my plants, watching tv and isolating from my family. I ate a lot of fast food and taught myself how to crochet.

I wonder how many poems have been written about you
How many people have you inspired
You move fast and frantic like a frightened rabbit
Observing the world at high speed
I wonder how many things you have seen,
secrets you have uncovered
I hope to fly someday, However, I prefer the slow pace
I wonder if you are wiser than most or if I just hope you are
It would be nice to know that someone has the answers
Maybe you are just as clueless as me
I hope to meet you again someday In a place above the trees
you can tell me of the things and places you’ve seen
