It’s been a pleasure to work on designing and creating the new website for Crime Cymru – The Welsh Crime Writing Collective.
After a kind word from Cal Smyth, who I’d previously worked with to make trailers and music for his Balkan Noir trilogy, I got to know and work closely with Thorne – an accomplished author of crime and grit fiction and head honcho-ess (or should that be femme fetale?) of the Crime Cymru collective.
What followed was a few intense weeks of building, designing and sharing ideas, of creating a brand and a presence.
I wanted to tease out that pulp-fiction feel, a throwback to hard-boiled crime writing. Red Harvest, Maltese Falcon, The Killer Inside Me, black and white movies, dubious PIs, type-written notes, while maintaining that connection to Wales.
A wealth of authors and stories with interviews, excerpts, online stores and links. Take a look for yourself and get reading.
And thank you Thorne Moore for the project. I hope you keep me involved.
