In my never ending quest to talk about book covers at any opportunity, I invited Matt, a cover designer at Penguin, to answer some questions about what his job is like.
Thanks so much to Matt for being in this video. See more of his work:

Where is your accent from?
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, studied English Literature at Leiden University (also in the Netherlands), studied in the US for 3 months and had lots of American friends, hence the weird accent. I'm definitely not Irish or Canadian, I promise!
Where do you live?
I live in London and have been here for 3.5 years now.
Where do you work?
I'm a Social Media Producer at Penguin Random House UK.
How did you get into publishing?
I did publishing work experience on 3 different occasions, did a lot of networking and learned everything I know about social media from creating and running this channel for 7 years. (P.s. You don't necessarily have to study Publishing or English to get a job in publishing!).
Can you review my book?
I can't guarantee that I will, but if you'd like to get in touch, please take a look at my review policy on the 'About' page of my channel.
What do you use to film?
I have a Canon 60D with a Tokina 11-16 lens (which is super useful if you want to sit close to your camera and still get a wide shot) and I use a window as my natural lighting. I edit my videos in Final Cut X.
