About Veronika Burian

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 South London until 2007.

After a 3-year stay in Boulder, Colorado, she is now living and working in Prague and dedicates her time fully to TypeTogether. She also continues to lecture about typography at international conferences and universities. Her typeface Maiola that she created during the MA, received the TDC Certificate of Excellence in Type Design 2004, was selected in the Type Design competition from Creative Review 2005 and was part of the touring exhibition e-a-t. Karmina and Bree, two collaborative typefaces from TypeTogether, also won a merit at the ED-Awards competition 2007 and 2009.
