” When I was first asked if I would like to talk to Hunter Design School students I didn’t really know what to expect. I was asked to talk to the students about what we look for in a wine label and to give them a wine label design brief.
I gave them a brief for our 2016 Tumbarumba Pinot Noir. I made the brief very broad to give the students a very wide scope.
When I was given the finished designs it was quite overwhelming! Every Student produced a label that was very unique and refreshingly original. The only issue I had was choosing which label to use. They were all of a quality that you would expect from a professional designer.
I would like to congratulate Hunter Design School for producing such talented and capable graduates”.

Inner City Winemakers Wickham
Through Rob’s thorough review of each design, a design was chosen as the winning design to be used for the Pinot Noir label in 2017.
Congratulations to Mel Craig with her award winning label design.
Mel has been working wholeheartedly, experimenting with new techniques and styles to create an artistic design that reflects both the Inner City Winemakers and the Newcastle lifestyle. Below is her wine bottle label with suggested re branding design ideas.
We would also like thank Carl Morgan from Zoocraft for encouraging our graphic design students and commending them on their hard work.
Working from the inside out, Carl Morgan designs and administers creative events. Primarily working with his partner Lara in design studio Zookraft, the pair orchestrates custom graphic design, illustration and typography, strong on personality and thoughtful in concept. Additionally, Carl undertakes creative festival Look Hear. The festival invites leaders in the creative industries to help create platforms for creative professionals, students and creative-curious folk, through workshops, conferences, exhibitions and more. In his spare time, Carl likes to pass on what he knows, to up-and-coming designers in local creative institutions.
