Kerning is the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a font; usually with the goal of creating more visually appealing and easier to read type. 

I recently came across KernType, a free online game to help designers and type lovers test their kerning abilities. What’s great about this little offering is it shows you in real time, the areas you may need improvement. It tests your kerning abilities to those of “professional typographers”.

Give it a try. If you’re a logo designer or someone who works a lot with type, you’ll find KernType helpful and maybe even a little entertaining. As always…thanks for reading.
