Background

TREY started preparing its own student media during the spring of 2019 by making a survey with the student union Tamko. The survey investigated the need among our students for Tampere’s own student media. On 29 October 2019, the council decided to found a new student media for TREY. The media outlet will be both in a print and digital form. The preparation work for the new student media in Tampere began in March, when Aapo Laakso was hired as Editor-in-Chief. Later in spring the editorial staff was filled with art director Pauliina Lindell, who began her work in designing the magazines look. An editorial intern begins their work in autumn.
