Äripäev is an Estonian financial newspaper founded in 1989. Initially published once a week, the frequency was changed to three issues and then to five issues in 1996. In 2023, it ceased publishing its print issue, and now is distributed exclusively online.
In 2006, Polish designer Jacek Utko was commissioned to overhaul the newspaper’s look. In the course of this redesign, a new logo was introduced. It is based on FF District (2002) by Albert Boton. Utko’s design was recognized by the Society for News Design as one of the World’s Best-Designed Newspapers.
As of 2023, Äripäev is still using this wordmark, on the website as well as for various subbrands like the Äripäev Raadio podcast.
