Room for every idea

January 2006 – April 2008


Ruum („space“ and „room“ in Estonian) was a design magazine that achieved passionate following among it's readers. It wrote mostly about design, interiors design and architecture with some occasional foray to general cultural topics.

Managing a magazine and an application have a lot in common – both make its' creator decide every day what is important, what is the thing that readers (e.g. users) most care about. And then implement the desicion given the constraints one always has.
