Congratulations Jarryd Hood!

We are thrilled to announce the recipient of the 2020 Grinders Grant is talented illustrator, digital designer and DJ from Richmond, Jarryd Hood.Jarryd promotes Melbourne culture through design, online guides, art exhibitions, apparel and dance parties. Check out his work @dosomething.melbourneWith this grant, Jarryd plans to take the Do-Something? project to the next level. This project has only ever been a side project for him, but now Jarryd will be in a position to get some more people involved and progress it to something more.

“As a designer, I pull inspiration from anywhere and everywhere, but the more knowledge I have about design and art history, the easier it is to be inspired by the world around me. Good ideas can come at any time of the day, not just when I am sitting in front of a computer. So I think it’s really important to get outside, get involved in the community and have a good time.”

– Jarryd Hood
