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.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
Of any character, Herky is most often depicted as a superhero and for good reason. Bravery, strength, and the pursuit of justice are what make superheroes who they are – as the face of the University of Iowa, Herky takes on this role and wears his cape proudly.
