Defined by Defiance. Joshua M. Smith, known as globally renowned artist Hydro74, works in Orlando, Florida as a designer and illustrator. Over the past sixteen years, he has built an impeccable reputation for his creativity through successful partnerships and promotions with Nike, Lucasfilm, Microsoft Xbox, Legendary Pictures, MillerCoors, EA SPORTS, and many more.
Hydro74 now lends his incredible imagination to us and we’re extremely proud to present the Limited Edition AXIAL designed by the legend himself. AXIAL just joined the ranks of new GUNNAR styles, and given Hydro74’s passion for contemporary art and his unique traditional style, it seemed fitting to combine his work with the frame. The Hydro74 AXIAL features a spectacular, one-of-a-kind pattern which is emblazoned on the temples, and is coupled with a befitting all-seeing eye to symbolize his visionary talent.
In an effort to defy his dark past, Hydro74 applies his story and determination directly into his illustrations and designs. He chose to become rather than be defeated, and it shows in the Limited Edition AXIAL designed by Hydro74. GUNNAR couldn’t be more pleased and honored to feature Hydro’s extraordinary unique style on the new AXIAL. Hydro74 was defined by defiance and aims to change tomorrow for the better. Now you can join him in his quest.
