Veronika Burian received her first degree in industrial design, but her interests shifted more and more towards typography. Discovering her true passion for type, she graduated with distinction from the master’s programme in typeface design in Reading, UK. In 2006 she founded, together with José Scaglione, the independent type foundry TypeTogether. As Veronika started off as a product designer, we ask her why and how she’d become a type designer. We ask her about the similarities between product design and type design. And she also explains to us how she chooses the names for her fonts and which letters are her favorite to design. Recorded at the European Design Awards 2010 in Rotterdam.
