AMY & JENNIFER HOOD | NEWPORT BEACH

Jennifer and Amy Hood are co-founders of Hoodzpah Design, a boutique design and branding firm based out of Newport Beach, California. They are co-authors of 'A Hoodrat’s Guide to Starting A Design Business' and can be found teaching a class on the subject at Laguna College of Art & Design. Cultivating a transparent design community with a free flowing stream of knowledge inspired Amy and Jennifer and a formidable list of their creative friends to found #ConnectingThings, a monthly creative meet up and knowledge forum congregating in Southern California and Brooklyn, NY. When the Hoods are not designing, they can be found hanging out with their misfit band of friends, blasting George Jones, dreaming of motorcycles and classic cars and roads that lead to far away places. Whether it's on two feet, two wheels, or four: there's something about stepping outside and seeing the world from the road less traveled. You can see more of the Hood's work at the touring Oil & Ink Expo which hits Ventura and Iron & Resin Aug. 22.
