Jefferson Rabb says that when designing a website his goal is “to create an immersive environment that evokes the underlying nature of the book.” In order to accomplish this he often draws on movies, shows, visual art, and architecture that emulate the atmosphere he hopes to achieve. The website for The Snakehead, Patrick Radden Keefe’s book about human trafficking in Chinatown, “is largely based on the detectives’ bulletin board in season one of The Wire,” he says.
