His early works are typical Hungarian Art Nouveau posters. In 1924, his paintings were successfully exhibited in Paris, in the Salone d’Automne. In the 1920s he designed many different posters for safety campaigns, exhibitions, etc. This time he also taught at the famous private art school, Atelier. With students of Atelier he took part in exhibitions and events of advertising artists. Végh was an excellent designer of emblems, logos and packages: he re-created the logo of the journal Nyugat in the 1910s, later he invented the heading of Esti Hírlap, the packages of Darling cigarettes and Zwack spirits, or the emblem of Magyar Hét (Hungarian Week). In 1948 he created a famous emblem for the centenary of the 1848 revolution.
