Find your inner typographer

Kerning game

A friend of Andre’s happened on this little game on the internet last week. The point of the game is to test your spatial awareness – particularly the space in between the letters of words. In typographic parlance this spacing is called kerning, and it’s particularly important in larger type like headings and logos. If done well, the spacing can tell a big story about your content, while poor spacing will affect legibility and generally make a poor impression.

We’ve played it here and I’m pleased to report that our scores were high (phew, design team you can relax). Our highest score was 100%, why not have a go and see if you can match it?

Have your say!
