Adam Craig
Design, Communications, Fiction Editor & Liquorice Fish imprint.
adam (at) cinnamonpress.com

Adam has published two novels (Vitus Dreams and In Dreams the Minotaur Appears Last), a short story collection (High City Walk, short listed for the Saboteur Award) and a prose poetry sequence (Year W). He keeps us musically educated, bakes bread and is chief servant to Freyja, the Cinnamon cat. Adam has over thirty years experience in design and photography, having not only worked in the music industry and spoken word circuit but in the public and voluntary sectors, tourism and professional training, producing everything from CD and demo tape covers, logos and gig posters to websites, leaflets, guidebooks, interpretation boards, maps, newsletters, button badges, reports, training manuals and (perhaps his proudest moment) a series of hi-res, to-scale 'artist's impressions' of a new superloo tastefully integrated into a dozen proposed locations around the centre of a Warwickshire village. Something to be flushed with success over… When not working as the commissioning editor of Cinnamon's Liquorice Fish imprint, Adam keeps the newsletters rolling out, the flyers, posters and postcards up to date, the bibliographic data uploaded in a timely fashion and designs our eBooks and all of our gorgeous covers.
