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.

 Love end the day with an email letting you know the #AppleWatch app you designed is appearing in two more #Apple commercials  My design team decided they wanted to work outside today but they are kind of a micromanager. #pug #pugsofinstagram #PugIsMyCoDesigner  Love these cookies so had to stop to visit the source. #cookies
 Incredible seats @u2 #u2ietour  Every time we go to the Hamptons it's tradition that we stop at @peterlugersteakhouse on the way home for a wedge salad and a bacon cheeseburger (the best burger in the world). @cpthecook wish you were here!  Currently working on a business plan that will let me work from this deck for the rest of the summer. @chandeliercreative @mermaid_ranch
