Okay, in truth, it's a one-man operation
( And, technically, there's more than one cat. )
Matt Hood is the chief creative mammal behind Graphics Without Borders.
Now living near Frankfurt, Germany, Matt was born and raised near Kansas City. He left Kansas after college and has 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 Matt’s work.
Matt’s professional background is in daily journalism. (He spent almost a decade as a designer and graphics editor at The Washington Post.) But there was always an artist underneath. And his unique background might make him the exact artist or illustrator that you or your publication is looking for.
He starts a piece with a sensible, Midwestern aesthetic. He expands it a bit with the cultural and creative influences of years living abroad. And then he ties it all up with his journalistic, no-nonsense ability to collaborate and make something beautiful before deadline.
