Wine label design

Hannah Rhinebeck bottle

You are a member of a family of California wine makers. You've been asked to design a new bottle for your families winery. Being a Photoshop student at Los Medanos College, your family knows it will be great.

That was the story I told my students when I assigned them to design wine label and mock up a wine bottle. The wonderful bottle of Sofia from the Coppola winery (check out that little hanging heart!) by Hannah Rhinebeck was one of many great efforts.

Here's a slide show of them all.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below.

Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.

Light and high school students

Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.
