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.

 Nice @invaderwashere was but mine is better at @vandalnewyork  Great entryway at @vandalnewyork  #streetart inspiration for lunch at John Brown BBQ in Long Island City
 @thechiclibrary and a little @obeygiant at @vandalnewyork #streetart  Really looking forward to dinner at @vandalnewyork - my perfect combination of street art and good food  I get to play six degrees of @lukewessman all the time as complete strangers come up to me, ask me if I'm friends with him and then hand me his stickers to prove they know who he is. This one happened while sitting on the train to NYC this morning. #BeTheNameThatsDropped
 As usual @tristaneaton killed it with the mural on the back wall at @vandalnewyork #streetart  Thinking the @philipppleininternational shoes will be coming home with me. Love these.  If you ever wondered what Grand Central would look like at rush hours with no trains leaving the station - here you go!
