Der Freitag (English: The Friday, stylized in its logo as der Freitag) is a German weekly newspaper established in 1990. It is published in Rhenish format. The place of publication is Berlin. Its publisher and editor-in-chief is Jakob Augstein. The newspaper was founded on 9 November 1990 with the name Freitag. It had some predecessors, one with the name of Sonntag, which was established in 1946. The paper originally described itself as "the East West Weekly", being established in the year of German reunification, but underwent a substantial rebranding in 2009, including the addition of the definite article (it was previously just Freitag) as well as the new claim "das Meinungsmedium". This followed the 2008 acquisition of the paper by Jakob Augstein. The rebranding was judged a success by the Society for News Design, judging it one of the three "World's Best Designed Newspapers" in 2010. Starting with edition 36 on September 5, 2019 der Freitag was published with the new subheadline „Die Wochenzeitung" („the Weekly Newspaper") and a redesigned front page. The paper's logo was placed higher up and the front-page picture enlarged. According to the publishing house the new subline is supposed to emphasise der Freitag's „strength as Weekly Paper and thus as medium for background reporting and analysis". More information...
