Matt Roeser – Designer

With over 13 years of publishing experience, I'm a professional book cover designer that creates jackets that stand out on the shelf.


Hello, I'm Matt, a book cover designer and author with over 13 years of experience in publishing. Prior to pursuing freelance full-time, I was an Associate Art Director at Candlewick Press. My work has been recognized in the AIGA 50/50 Show as well as the New England Book Show. I'm most interested in cover designs for adult fiction and non-fiction, but enjoys working in all genres.

Check out my portfolio to see the wide array of genres I've worked in. One thing I always strive for is designing a cover that stands out: on Amazon, on the bookshelf, anywhere it appears. The more information you can provide me for your project, the better I'll be able to provide an accurate estimate. I enjoy working with people who respect the expertise I bring to the table and trust me to give their book the best possible cover. Having been on both the author side and the design side gives me a unique perspective that sets me apart. I look forward to giving your book the gorgeous cover it deserves.
