As a designer, I am constantly obsessing over good typography. My professors were constantly enforcing the importance of having a great eye to detail when it comes to type. I now have a strong understanding of the value of kerning. Here is a great website to practice your kerning.
Some of you might be wondering exactly what kerning is. Kerning is the process of adjusting the spacing in between individual letters. Some fonts create a spacing in between the letters that is visually unpleasing. As designers, we are constantly fixing the kerning so the letters have a natural flow.
There is a grocery store chain located where I went to college, and you can easily notice the kerning is off on their logo. It would bother me so much every time I passed their sign. Can you guess which letters need to be kerned on the logo below?
