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.

 I'm incredibly humbled from the photos I've been getting from some of the most creative people I know wearing my Crazy One hats. Today it was @chefrobruiz who is doing some amazing cuisine and conservation work at @landandwaterco - if you haven't tried his food and aren't following his work you are missing out.
