Kerning: A Love/Hate Relationship

Posted on by Om Nom Monster Studio

So as most designers/typesetting/observant peeps know, even if they don't know the word for it, kerning "is the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font, usually to achieve a visually pleasing result"* I've spent hours before kerning a piece making sure each character was spaced just right. I even play this little game over and over again to make sure my skills are still sharp.

It can be the most annoying thing you ever notice. Ever. I like to point it out to my friends so they can share in the horror. So friends, here you go!
