Matthew Young

Primarily a book designer, I also oversee websites, brand identities, record covers, exhibition designs, user experience, videos and animations, amongst other things.

Since 2011 I have worked full-time at Penguin Press in London, creating book covers and text designs for the Penguin, Penguin Classics, Pelican, Particular and Allen Lane imprints.

In my ‘spare’ time I take on freelance work for a broad range of clients, including the Royal Society of Arts, National Portrait Gallery and the British Film Institute.

I pride myself on solving visual communication problems — taking something complex and making it distinctive, recognisable and easy to use and understand.
