KERNTYPE: the kerning video game

I am a type nerd and celebrate great typography in all of it’s expressions. I freely admit it. Two years ago this obsession  took on a new direction about a year and a half ago with the release of the KERN video game for the iPhone. Now comes another kerning game called KERNTYPE. This is a web based game where you are given a series of ten kerning problems and you have to drag the letters of the word to try get as close to the correct kerning as possible. The closer you are to the perfect kerning the higher your score. It can causes quite a bit of competition around the the design studio for who can get the highest score and as you can see from the screenshot I retain my title of ultimate type nerd with a perfect score of 100.

 THANK YOU LA AND @adobemax ! Had a blast but it's time to get back to NYC and start doing some amazing things at @citi ! @hailme377 @t_diary @telstner @chwilliams12 @adobe  This is why I will speak at events like @adobemax or anywhere that has a stage that will have me. So humbled and so happy that I can share my knowledge that has this type of impact.  How do you end such a great day? By fulfilling a childhood dream and stopping in at The Jim Henson Company of course!
 Had to stop into @thetruetattoo to see the new home of my brother @lukewessman yesterday to get some new ink for @hailme377 and a little world domination planning  A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came to my @adobemax sessions, stopped me in the hall to talk and was so supportive of my move to Citi! See everyone next year! #adobemax @adobe @adobecreativecloud  Such an amazing afternoon seeing the incredible things my friends at Apple and Adobe have been collaborating on. Plus let me say again how amazing the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are.
 @adobemax 2015 is in the books and the champaign has started to flow at @bouchon_bistro  I always talk about how having an idea never happens as a 'light bulb' moment and those types of ideas are unicorns. As always @t_diary captured that concept absolutely perfectly. Love his work so much.  I can tell you from first hand experience that iPad Pro and Apple Pencil ARE FUCKING AWESOME!!!! #apple #applepencil
