New In My Store:

New in my store…

Hi!

I'm Matt Hood

a.k.a. Graphics Without Borders

Now living near Frankfurt, Germany, I was born and raised in the ‘burbs of Kansas City. I left the Midwest after college and have since lived and worked in Washington, D.C.; Moscow, Russia; Paris, France; and now Wiesbaden, Germany. Each new location — and cultural immersion — has informed and influenced my work.

About

My professional background is in daily journalism. (I spent almost a decade as a designer and graphics editor at The Washington Post.) But there was always an artist and illustrator underneath. 

I start each new piece with a sensible, Midwestern aesthetic. I expand it a bit with the cultural and creative influences of years living abroad. And then I tie it all up with the journalistic, no-nonsense ability to collaborate and make something beautiful before deadline.
