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.

 The #google sign that was added to campus for the movie The Internship - guess they weren't big on branding back then  Love this. #culture #design #creativity  Found a great @aarondelacruz piece this morning walking around San Francisco.

 Even the stairs at #google are smart by showing you the current most popular searches  Seeing how the other half live.  The new #Apple flagship store in Union Square is honestly pretty jaw dropping. Whole front of the store opens blurring the line between the store and the square. #applestore #apple #sanfrancisco
