Eureka Group Show Recap

Huge shout out to everyone who made the trek out to the OC Great Park to see take in the Eureka Group Show, curated by us Hoods.

Designers from San Diego to San Francisco contributed to the show. The “Anyone Can Be a Graphic Designer” interactive cork board was a hit with kids and parents alike. We cut out dozens of foam elements and shapes which visitors could affix to pegs on the board to make their own design and celebrate the fun of graphic design. Take a look through our photos from the opening. Feel free to grab and share on your social! Tag us at @hoodzpahdesign.

Major thanks to all the artists who participated, and to Adam and Kevin at the OC Great Park Gallery. View current and upcoming shows here.
