Welcome to the Multimedia Designs club (MDC)!

Because MDC is a fast moving club, we need to keep things organised so people can find the things they need.

Are you a user looking for media for your story?

You have come to the right place! The Multimedia Designs Club (MDC) is full of talented designers offering all sorts of exciting and interesting enhancements to give your story those finishing touches.


Browse this club for active at that moment shops who may be able to assist you with your graphic requests.

Only provide a link to your story when requesting a graphic/trailer. Do not use this club for advertising or exchanging reads, critiques or stories, there are areas in other clubs for that.

In order to keep things organised in the club, we ask you to take note of the pinned threads (more information about the pinned threads can be found here).

You can find out information about the subcategories of the MDC here.

Are you a budding visual artist looking to express yourself through beautifully made book covers and drama-filled trailers? Well this is the place for you to offer your talented services to other Wattpad users or, for those of you who aren’t as experienced, solicit information on how to do so!


Wattpad is a positive community, keep it positive. Help people decide to choose you by emphasizing what you love to make rather than what you won’t make . If you don’t want to make a requested graphic, simply say you can’t take on the project. Everyone has the right to decline a project without having to provide a reason. And please remember that public "blacklists” are not allowed.

Keep the thread topic and discussions related to media. Chat threads or off-topic threads should take place in the Cafe or on your own message board.

Please help to provide an equal and fair opportunity for all discussions and refrain from excessively bumping.

Any media without a watermark will be considered usable by others in the multimedia designs club. Including a watermark in your design helps to avoid this scenario. Please be respectful of designers and do not offer up other people’s creations as your own.

Payments for media cannot be monetary in nature (as per Wattpad’s Terms of Service) and should be mentioned up-front.

Examples of what you can ask for/ offer are:

  • Comments/ feedback
  • Follows
  • Shout outs
  • Attribution
  • Reading list adds
  • Graphics/stickers

Please be aware that votes are not allowed as “payments”, as this is considered to be vote trading and against Wattpad’s Code of Conduct.

Any off Wattpad payment (e.g. a follow on other site) is also not allowed.


As long as the designer’s payment has been met, the requester is not obligated to use the graphic, neither is the designer obligated to make another one.
