Matthew Wainwright

Hi, I’m Matt Wainwright and I’m a Book Cover Designer for Undiscovered Publishing.

I live and work in London, England, as a Support Worker for deaf students and a freelance Graphic Designer. I also (appropriately, for a book cover designer) write in my spare time, mostly Young Adult historical fiction and a smattering of sci-if.

My design influences are varied, from David Carson to Florian Nicolle; I like strong, simple design that communicates a clear message whilst being great to look at. Similarly, I love writers whose prose is straightforward yet powerful, such as Ursula K LeGuin and Philip Pullman. If I could write or design half as well as any of these fine people I would be a happy man!
