Veronika Burian, born in Prague, got her first degree in Industrial Design in Munich, Germany, before she moved on to Austria and Italy to work as a mix between a product and graphic designer.
Discovering her true passion for type, she graduated with distinction from the MA in Typeface Design in Reading, UK, in 2003 and started to work as full-time type designer at DaltonMaag in London for a few years. After staying for some time in Boulder, Colorado, she moved back to her hometown Prague and is now living and working in Spain. She dedicates her time fully to TypeTogether, an independent type-label that she co-founded with José Scaglione.
Veronika also continues to give lectures and workshops at international conferences and universities. Her typeface Maiola received, amongst others, the TDC Certificate of Excellence in Type Design 2004. Several other typefaces by TypeTogether have also been recognised by international type competitions.
