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.

 Doesn't get much better than this with a perfect day in NYC overlooking Central Park.  This evening we're watch the incredible documentary 'Iris' about fashion icon Iris Apfel. I love it because it's a coming attraction of what life with @hailme377 will be like in the future.  One or two more screens and my office is going to look like something out of the Matrix... #DesignerProblems
 So there a small chance that I went a little overboard on the Amish corn today but it's totally worth it. #foodiesofinstagram  Few people know that Frank Baum the author of The Wizard of Oz was from Peekskill and the yellow brick road was inspired by the old streets of the city which were yellow brick. Only one section remains for historical preservation but it's a secret I love about my town. #wizardofoz #yellowbrickroad  Pork heaven at @fishgamehudson
 Family work road trip to @dundoreheister - tomorrow Oogie is going Amish #PugIsMyCoDesigner #pugsofinstagram  Seriously the world's greatest potato chips #truffle #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #potatochips  Day trip for another amazing meal at @fishgamehudson with @hailme377
