How do you do, .ee?
The main focus of that year’s event was the wish that we wanted a free internet but got something else. Is data some mystical creature generating profit for its master? Is the government like our mom and dad in the digital world? Who should protect us against ourselves and technology? How to take the news that Youtube might close down in Europe? And can we find the answer to a long lasting question – “Who is smarter, the egg or the chicken – you or your child”?
The main idea of Estonian Internet Day 2019 was to gather the Estonian Internet society, discuss and give an effort to develop Estonian Internet in general.
Baltic Domain Days
Estonian Internet Days 2019 also hosted the Baltic Domain Days. The event included several national domain concerns and developments in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
What we did
Our goal was to create the full visual to suit both Estonian Internet Days and Baltic Domain Days
Foam letters – we created several sets of foam letters to brighten up Kultuurikatel. with Baltics domains (.ee, .lv, .lt) and hashtags so the guests could share their thoughts with certain tags and links.
Keynotes – All the presentations and welcoming slides received our visual and were used as part of the interior and lightning.
Gifts for guests – All participants got our poster calendar, where the year started after the Internet Day and ended when it was time to go to the next year’s event.
Gifts fo speakers – All the speakers got a small box of .ee macrons. The box was designed to the theme of Kait ja Kalle .ee (Nate and Kate) from the explanatory video series nateandkate.ee.
Reflection of the sealine
Our idea holds the concept of the seaside location of the parish, and the local activities. The blue describes swamps, bogs, clean air and water in general. The white symbolises light, purity, determination of youth and hope for the future.
The symbol of Estonian wilderness, the eagle, denotes the nature community of Lääneranna parish and partly refers that our “bird state”, the Matsalu National Park, is located here. There are numerous eagle nesting sites in Lääneranna parish and, as a result, also nature reserves, including the recently established Varbla Nature Reserve.
The eagle, the king of birds, symbolises wisdom, strength and vision. The flying eagle carries from earth to sky a message of renewed life and resilience to go through hardships and shared freedom. The courage to look ahead and achieve what seems unattainable.
The eagle also refers to the evangelist John, the patron saint of the bishop of Saare-Lääne, whose symbol it was; The centre of the Saare-Lääne diocese and the bishop’s residence were originally located in Lihula.
Values from history & culture
The wall-toothed division denotes a protective function, and as such refers to the ancient Estonian rural towns, which in Lääne County there are as many as eight from the pre-crusade period (Lihula ancient castle, Soontagana rural town, Karuse castle, Keblaste Taramägi, Kurese ring rural castle, and the vassal castles Lihula Episcopal Castle and Virtsu Vassal Castle).
