František Štorm interviewed Veronika for his new book Eseje o Typografii
. It is a very well-written book about Štorm's ideas on type and his approach to designing with many interesting illustrations. So far it was published only in Czech by Revolver Revue.
Recently-published Typo 33 contains an extensive review of Veronika's Maiola
typeface in the context of Czech typography.
David Březina wrote about the background and Latin part of the family, Irene Vlachou comments on Maiola Greek.
For the October issue of "creative characters"
(MyFonts), Jan Middendrop selected Veronika and José. It is an interview intended to show the faces behind the fonts.
The Austrian typografische gesellschaft
invited Veronika to give a talk and workshop in Vienna. It was part of a whole series of talks, about 6 events per year that are open to the public and in particular to the students at die graphische.
José Scaglione offered two lectures in the 3CIT
in Valencia Spain. The first one addressed the origin and use of the spanish letter "eñe", accompained by renowned catalan designer Andreu Balius. The second lecture was a presentation that describes, with the help of recent samples of work, some of the reasons that drive the design and commercialization of new text typefaces, and how they affect the way new fonts look like.
Veronika was invited to present at the PechaKucha
event in Denver.
She talked about "Why another typeface". PK is a global phenomena about people presenting their own work or other material of interest in the field of design and art. Each presentation takes only 6 min 40 sec and 20 slides.
After several months of intensive planning, TypeTogether opened its first exhibition
in Rosario, Argentina at CEC. The exhibit was very welcomed by local designers and publishing houses. This collection of real-life type design work was conceived as a travelling educational project and it will be shown in different cities, institutions and countries. To receive more information about hosting this exhibition please contact us.
José's visit to Bogotá was confirmed. The activities calendar includes three lectures, one of them together with Andreu Balius, and a two-day type design workshop. These academic activities are sponsored by two colombian universities, Uniminuto and Libertadores, within a series of events related to the opening of the TiposLatinos 2008 Biennial
Our typefaces Ronnia
were selected to be part of the 23rd International Biennial
of Graphic Design in Brno 2008 and were exhibited at the Moravian gallery later in the year.
The German magazine Slanted
published recently its 5th issue, the "Antiqua-boom". Antiqua in German refers to a serif typeface. Maiola
was selected to be one of the examples of new, contemporary serif typefaces.
The article "typeladys" in the November issue of PAGE talks about a selected number of female type designers and shows some of their work. Veronika is one of them.
