Denver, CO


Based out of Iowa City, Hawkeye Hotels is a family-owned hotel ownership and management company with values that stem from the roots of what it means to be a Hawkeye – embracing hard work and opportunity, putting people first, and giving back to our local communities. Being a Hawkeye runs in our blood, deep down to the core of each hotel in our portfolio. The new Hampton Inn University Area has been proudly accommodating Hawkeye fans since opening in 2013. We take great pride in getting to know our guests and ensuring they are well cared for during their stay. Go Hawks!

about the artist

Cody graduated with a BA degree with a graphic design emphasis from the University of Iowa in 2001. After school, he worked as a designer for University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics as well as the Iowa Memorial Union. He was an artist for several sculptures for the original Herky on Parade. Cody has worked for Monigle Associates, a branding firm in Denver, Colorado for the past 6 years, but stays connected to his Iowa roots by creating designs for events like FRY fest and granGABLE.


Herky takes the form of Andy Warhol’s most recognizable pattern of repeated graphic images. The tigerhawk takes center stage on the bright blocks of color Warhol was known to use in the 1960s.
