I'm Matt Hood...

My brand, Graphics Without Borders, is built on the belief that beautiful illustrations and great graphic design know no bounds. They aren't confined by a state line or a date line.

I am a creative communicator of visual ideas. My illustrations have been recognized by THE ASSOCIATION OF ILLUSTRATORS  and 3 x 3 INTERNATIONAL.  A recovering daily journalist, I know the vital importance of getting the story right, working seamlessly within my editorial team and producing a product on deadline.

After leaving the newsroom, I lived and worked in Russia, France and Germany. Now I’m back in Washington D.C. but each of those cultural immersions is reflected in the subjects and style of my art.
