Kern Type - A Kerning Game

Posted On: October 13, 2011


A friend of mine was kind enough to send me a link to this website this morning. For all you type lovers out there this kerning game will blow your mind. It’s a great practice for first year graphic designs or anyone who wants to hone in on their kerning skills. 


Kerning Type Game - How it Works

The user simply clicks on a letter and moves the character with the arrow keys. Once you think it looks good the user can click compare and it will give them a score out of 100. Pretty cool hey? I also love how they use various fonts to better understand the diversity amongst each character in a font. The font they selected range from sans serif, serif to display type; Frutiger, Garamond, FF Meta Black and FF Zine Slab Black Italic. So when’s the last time you kerned?
