Oldrich Menhart: Calligrapher, type designer and craftsman
Plus a short talk on Type Together
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 until 2007.
After staying for some years in Boulder, Colorado, she is currently living and working in Prague and dedicates her time fully to TypeTogether, an independent type-label that she co-founded with José Scaglione. She also continues to give lectures and workshops at international conferences and universities. Her typeface Maiola received, among others, the TDC Certificate of Excellence in Type Design 2004. Several other typefaces by TypeTogether have also been recognised by international competitions, including ED-Awards and ISTD.http://www.type-together.com/
