In 2021, she was part of the development of Belarius, a three-axis variable family that shifts from sans to slab serif, from condensed to expanded widths, and includes every possibility in between. Published by Type Together in 2021, it was developed under the guidance of Veronika Burian and José Scaglione, with type design by Azza Alameddine and Pooja Saxena, and additional kerning and engineering help from Radek Sidun, Joancarles Casasin and Irene Vlachou.
