DESCRIPTIONI decided I would like my project to explore solutions to a topical issue in Spain. The premise of my project is to combat the economic crisis prevalent in Spain today by highlighting its economic potential. The product I have decided to market is wine- focusing on four key regions in the North of Spain. I decided to make a set of four wines, each bottle representing a different region. In order to unify the graphic design and branding on the four bottles, each region has been selected according to its name; each region begins with the letter ‘R.’ This means that in spite of the individual qualities of each wine, and the unique design of each bottle the brand will be represented as a whole by a standard ‘R’ logo

DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN TYPES OF WINE
I decided I would like my project to explore solutions to a topical issue in Spain. The premise of my pro-ject is to combat the economic crisis prevalent in Spain today by highlighting its economic potential. The product I have decided to market is wine- fo-cusing on four key regions in the North of Spain. I decided to make a set of four wines, each bottle re-presenting a different region. In order to unify the gra-phic design and branding on the four bottles, each region has been selected according to its name; each region begins with the letter R. This means that in spite of the individual qualities of each wine, and the unique design of each bottle the brand will be represented as a whole by a standard R logo.
This project has allowed me to develop my skill-base as a graphic designer; for example I have experimented with using IPAD applications and applications which promote tactile freedom through the development of my design work. Often I have initiated the process for a design using programs such as colourbox and then transferred the file into Illustrator CS5 for further development. Additionally, I have learnt how to ma-nage the Illustrator Pen Tool, this device has given me a broader artistic range which will allow me to create Illustrations and Logos with precision in the future.
As a starting point for my design work, I used original images that I had taken of landscapes in the North of Spain. Then I began to create illustrations on colour box and integrate them into the photographs. I wan-ted to use the historic image of the Spanish shield as a base for the development of the logo. In order to contextualise the design, I began to look at the work of Manolo Prieto, whose classic image of the Bull, initially commissioned for an alcohol logo, gave him his reputation as an acclaimed Spanish Graphic Designer. Prietos image of the Bull is spread throug-hout Spanish Territory along roads and hills and has now become a Spanish National Icon, having out-grown its association with the alcoholic drink. The Spanish Shield had similar advertising potential.
I began to develop a series of booklets, each of which includes information about the Designation of Origin which each wine comes from. Each prototype inclu-des a variety of different visual aids, some photogra-phic and others illustrated. This type of wine product already exists in various regions in the North of Spain. However I want to develop the concept behind this product by heavily integrating a Spanish National Identity using a sophisticated style of visual bran-ding. One way in which I have established a Spanish theme is to imitate the colours of the Spanish Flag, applying the colour red to the two red wines and the colour yellow to the two white wines. The colours become a part of my graphic design for the label and therefore reassert the wine as a product of Spain.

Ribera del Duero is a Spanish Denominacin de Origen (DO) located in the country's northern pla-teau and is one of eleven 'quality wine' regions within the autonomous community of Castile and Len. It is also one of several recognised wine-producing regions to be found along the course of the Duero river. The region is characterised by a largely flat, rocky terrain and is centred on the town of Aranda de Duero, although the most famous vineyards surround Peafiel and Roa de Duero to the west, where the regional regulatory council or Consejo Regulador for the denominacin is ba-sed.Ribera del Duero is home to the world-famous and highly-prized Vega Sicilia and Tinto Pesque-ra wines and is dedicated almost entirely to the production of red wine from the Tempranillo grape.
Ribeiro (in Galician Ribeiro) is one of five designations of origin for wines in Galicia. The production area is located in the southern part of Galicia, in northwestern edge of the province of Orense, at the confluence of the valleys formed by rivers Minho, Avia, and Barbantio Arnoia. In 2005 had a total area of 2685 hectares of vineyards located in the following municipalities: Ribadavia, Arnoia, Cas-trelo of Minho, Carballeda of Avia, Leiro Cenlle, Beade, Punxn, Cortegada, and the municipalities of Bobors, San Amaro, Ton, Carballino, and Orense.The vineyard extends from 75 to 400 meters high in valleys and hillsides.

RIBERA DEL DUERO
One of the traits that sets Rioja Wines apart is their excellent aptitude for ageing, a quality that is exclusive to great wines. Through appropriate ageing,. in which oak wood plays a decisi-ve role, Rioja Wine evolves, its virtues becoming more prominent and acquiring new aromas and flavours. Rioja Wines are aged in 225 litre oak casks, where the wine experiences a slow evolutio-nary process of micro-oxygenation and stabilisation, and even-tually acquires aromas and flavours released by the tannins in the wood. This is the traditional ageing method of great wines, a natural, more costly process than modern proposals of a more industrial oenology. The ageing process is completed in the bottle, where the wine continues to evolve in a reducing atmos-phere until it reaches its peak. Great wines from historic vintages sleep in bottles for decades in the sacristies of the bodegas until they are transformed into true oenological gems.
Depending on the ageing process, Rioja wine can be put into one of four categories, identified by different numbered back labels or seals, which the Control Board issues to those wines that meet quality and
