‘Do you know the feeling that you do not want to take a look at something, but you still do? The Road Kill carpet is a continues struggle between attraction and repulsion. It’s a warm, soft, cuddly carpet that attracts you to take a nap on it. But at the same time its a repulsive image of a car-flattened, bloody fox.’

Available in Spring 2009.

‘the Digital Newsstand’

Digital Newsstand | Scott Walker

Scott Walker works Monday to Friday as the assistant managing editor at the Birmingham News, Alabama’s largest newspaper. In his spare time he created this design project that transformed an old newspaper box into ‘the Digital Newsstand’.

‘I’ve modified an old newspaper box to deliver the latest headlines to my living room each morning, and I don’t even have to fumble around for quarters. It’s a simple home project that you can make with just a few used parts.’

All in all, the project offers a new way to view the news that blends the old fashioned newspaper standard digital technology.
