Veronika Burian and José Scaglione, who met at the University of Reading whilst completing their MAs in Type Design, joined forces in 2006 and started the independent type foundry TypeTogether. It developed out of our desire to publish high quality typefaces and to collaborate on new type projects together. Hence the name.
We also cooperate intensely with other type designers and thus create a diverse and interesting platform. Our main interest is in finding innovative and stylish solutions to old problems for the professional market of text typefaces with a focus on editorial use. This is where we see the greatest challenges, creating typefaces that perform well in continuous reading, but have enough personality to show.
The advantage of being a small but highly specialized company is that we are able to work closely with our clients to accomplish their goals and to respond quickly to their requirements. Custom modifications and specially tailored typefaces can serve as vital elements of a company’s corporate identity communicating a unique feel.
At TypeTogether we make sure custom typeface projects are developed on solid foundations, based on the client’s brief, targeted research and close collaboration with all the involved parties. We also aim for excellent technical performance using the latest font software, creating cross-platform Opentype fonts with extended character sets that offer broad language support and all kinds of typographic refinements, such as small caps, ligatures and several sets of numerals.
The quality of our work has been already recognized in several international competitions, including TDC and ED-Awards.
