Digital Street Paper project goes live!


A couple of years ago I had an idea to take street papers like the Big Issue into the digital age. Working with the INSP and David Craik we got buy-in from several street papers around the world and the Big Issue in the North agreed to support a pilot project.

Our project received funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and successfully raised over $5,000 via Kickstarter. This allowed us to get 999 Design on board to help with the design and technical development.

This week the first digital street paper officially launched at

It’s early days, but feedback so far has been really positive and we’re looking forward to expanding the project to include other street papers around the world.
