Growl to Garden is organized by Diego Mercado, a bartender at Tap & Growler, and sponsored by the two pubs at either end of it. Diego and his twin brother, Danny, both moved to Eugene from Southern California to run for the University of Oregon and decided to stay. Now this race, which benefits local youth running programs, is a huge part of their lives.
What is our role in all of this? Drawn has worked with the pub owners on several projects over the years, including the architectural design for both Tap & Growler and Beergarden. We developed Growl 2 Garden’s brand identity, sponsorship collateral, race packets, signage, apparel, and website. We also have a hand in creating the trophies and helping to organize the post-race Garden Party.
