The annual Gerard Unger Scholarship (GUS) helps promising typeface design students develop their careers. TypeTogether’s aim is to enable exceptional projects started during a course of study to be finalised and published commercially as soon as possible after the end of the course. This year we received almost 100 submissions from all over the world — fourty-five schools and eighteen different scripts flowed in prior to the deadline. The TypeTogether team has selected the main scholarship winner and eight merit awards for those promising typeface projects.

Rezak typeface

Veronika Burian and José Scaglione, the founders of TypeTogether, comment about this edition of the Scholarship: “This year, the scholarship recipient is Rezak, a Latin and Cyrillic type family by Russian type designer Anya Danilova. Her work is bold, energetic, and well informed. And while it is in every sense a novel design that will make great company to previous GUS winners, it also displays a wink to the work of some type masters like Preissig, Menhart, and Dwiggins. This push toward creativity and innovation with an eye on typography’s rich history is an important part of our foundry’s efforts.”


The eight promising typeface projects receiving TypeTogether’s merit award are: Bacon by Adriana De La Torre Cervantes, Exposure by Federico Parra Barrios, Figurat by Abdel Martins, Leonore by Helene Krieger, Quinta by Carina M. Huynh, Rapida by Michelangelo Nigra, Tenta by Renan Rosatti and Tiga by Sirin Gunkloy.

We want to thank every student who submitted their typefaces to the Gerard Unger Scholarship, and also the teachers and tutors who have helped throughout the process.
