    Kern Type: The Kerning Game

    Link: Kern Type, the kerning game

    Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters. Typographers call this activity kerning. Your solution will be compared to a typographer's solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it.
    First of 10 kerning problems:

    Thats great I'm quite good at Kerning as I have worked with a Sign Writer so get used to tweaking to make it visually right, its not offering me a tweet option but I've just done all 10 and getting around 90/100 as an average got 100/100 on a couple of them

    There were a couple where I didn't tuck the second letter underneath the capital T anywhere near enough but having never been taught anything about this and just having learnt it by doing in Photoshop, I'm quite chuffed tbh

    Although it seems to me that if I arrange the letters so that they are visually appealing to me then that is the best arrangement for me...whether that is "correct" is surely a bit subjective?

    Rather like colour balancing a photograph...we all see colours differently so would often disagree on what is "right", look at someone else's TV and their colour settings will often look wrong to you.

    Or am I taking this all too seriously

    I believe I am also colourblind [Red/Green] I have not been tested for it but I do seem to have mild colourblindness [if that is possible] I often cannot agree with my friends/colleagues what certain colours/shades should be called.

    Ishihara Test for Color Blindness

    What do you see then I can see 1 of them clearly and one other sort of the rest all just spots to me which confirms my weakness

    Oh and for those who will want to ask but dare not, I am fine with Traffic Lights I will not run you over as I can tell if its red or green or even amber (Yes I am regularly asked if I should be allowed to drive as they assume that Red / Green colour blindness = red and green are just grey or not visible at all!)
