ekspress.delfi.ee

I started working as a layout designer for a small newspaper called Liivimaa Kroonika back in 1991.
 
It was a wild time in the Estonian society and even more so in the news business. Working in a newspaper was a crazy rollercoaster ride back then. Among other things, it involved designing the paper in a winter coat and mittens (because the temporary office rooms were so cold in January) and constantly spending the whole weekly paper work cycle without any sleep. Yeah, it was plenty of fun.
 
In the following years I’ve been working as a layout designer for various Estonian newspapers and magazines, also spent a couple of years in a prepress office. In 2001, I joined Eesti Ekspress, one of the most influential Estonian newspapers, and have been leading the paper version design team since 2009.

She recently just started on an amazing old weekly newspaper, Weekendavisen (published since 1749), which currently is in an early process of redesigning both digitally and on print.

“I am very excited to see the best digital design in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries”, Katinka says.
