We have created social media design guidelines and templates in the Figma design system so that all of the online resources showcasing Estonia have a uniform look. In order to use the templates you will need to set up a Figma account, which is free of charge, and download the Aino typeface. If you would like more information on how to use the tool, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have added more icons, some of them related to space and transport, and new images depicting industry, education and the virtual choir event.
We have also updated the guidelines on video design, adding examples of on-screen graphics and subtitles, and uploaded videos of the Estonian business environment (in German), education, nature and the e-Estonia Briefing Centre to Toolbox.
During the state of emergency, the e-Estonia Briefing Centre began streaming live talks on the e-Estonia Facebook page in order to showcase the digital solutions of e-Estonia to the public at large. These live events are moderated by one of the speakers from the centre and feature guest speakers who are software solution developers or people using the solutions. For example, representatives of the e-School and the Ministry of Education and Research were the guest speakers at a live talk on e-education, which was a hugely important topic during the crisis. The live events were held once a week in spring and will continue to be held twice a month in summer.
During the peak period of the crisis, the Estonian Investment Agency and Startup Estonia held an online pitching event to introduce Estonian start-ups to potential foreign investors. The aim was to show the investors how they could benefit from the crisis. The start-ups which have helped in finding solutions to problems that arose during the crisis or which have been able to develop during this unprecedented situation had the opportunity to showcase their work as part of Startup Demo Day.
