José Cabaço

José is the Creative Director of Global Brand Nike Sportswear, based in Portland, Oregon, United States. Born in Mozambique, started his professional career as Art Director at J. Walter Thompson in Lisbon, Portugal in 1989. Worked in various advertising agencies. In 2002 he was invited to be the creative director of Nike Europe, the Amsterdam office of W+K. His portfolio has hundreds of advertising campaigns and many prizes. Despite being the fastest Instagrammer in the West, he always carries his sketchbook.

CLOSE
Jennifer Hood

Jennifer is a mildly tortured creative based out of Newport Beach, California. She is the co-founder of creative firm Hoodzpah Design Co. with her twin sister Amy Hood. When not scribbling words, doodling lines, or manipulating anchor points, she’s tinkering on a piano, going comatose via Hulu overdose, reading smelling an issue of Esquire on the beach, attempting to hustle pool to no avail, or singing a pitchy rendition of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” at the local karaoke bar. According to The Velvet Underground, Jenny’s life was saved by rock ‘n’ roll. That’s disputable. Jen can also be found molding the young design minds of tomorrow at Laguna College of Art & Design in Laguna Beach, California.

CLOSE
Amy Hood

Amy is one half of the founding twin freak show that started creative firm Hoodzpah Design Co. When she is not racking in unsuspecting prey at the pool hall or spewing stats at bar patrons unlucky enough to have cast bad light on the name of Kobe Bryant, Amy is dreaming of motorcycles and classic cars, watching mind-rotting sci-fi television on Netflix, painting portraits of her misfit band of friends, and Instagramming the pants off the world. Don’t let her button nose or pocket-size fool you, that tattoo on her middle finger is real and it can only mean one thing. Amy can also be found molding the young design minds of tomorrow at Laguna College of Art & Design in Laguna Beach, California.

Matt Stevens

Matt Stevens is a designer and illustrator currently living and working in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has spent the majority of his career in small to mid sized brand shops and agencies as a designer and Creative Director. In early 2012 he opened the Design Office of Matt Stevens to pursue his own clients and incorporate more illustration into his daily practice. He currently works on a mix of brand identity and illustration projects. He is a strong advocate for self-initiated work and his pursuit of personal projects has led to opportunities to work with many great brands in both identity design and core brand illustration work. His background in multiple disciplines is what focuses him to consider a client problem from all sides and to produce work that is both driven by strong ideas and presents a unique point of view. Selected clients include; Nike, Evernote, Esquire, Facebook, Pinterest, Google, Asana, JJ’s Red Hots, New York Magazine, TBWA London, Leo Burnett, the Salvation Army, the WWE, Money Magazine, Sony Music and WIRED.
