To everyone who celebrates the American holiday of Thanksgiving, may you have an enjoyable and good day.
Late last year we made a post on the topic of kerning and now in the interest of keeping of visitors and clients alike informed we direct your attention to this new and wonderful addition to the internet: KERNTYPE a kerning game. This is a fun and enjoyable way to get a better understanding of the fun and challenges of letter spacing.
Happy 4th of July everyone.
The fine art print being sold in support of the Japanese relief efforts is now available for purchase over at etsy.
We hope you like it.
You may have noticed that we have not posted an update in a little while. This is because we have been hard at work on several projects. Among them, working on a re-branding for our first international client while continuing to work with our existing clients. Additionally we have several new clients that we have been working with.
Though our portfolio has not been updated, we will be adding material from our past and current projects soon.
In other news, following the tragedy in Japan, we have decided make several fine art linocut prints available on Etsy. 36% of the proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to the relief efforts in Japan. Check back tomorrow for more details.
From all of us at type29A, may you all have a happy and enjoyable new year.
A friend has described the letters in a poorly kerned word, such can be seen here, as “looking like a bunch of strangers standing around randomly.” This is both a fun and accurate way of describing poor kerning.
Kerning is the technical term for the space between characters of type. As can be seen in the word “Denyo” in the linked example, the spacing between the various letters is strikingly poor. This is unfortunately an all too commonly seen mistake in many designs.
