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.

 #ripbillcunningham If you live in #NYC and love fashion you got dressed everyday hoping to cross paths with Bill Cunningham. I will never forget 3 winters ago on an incredibly cold day I was crossing the street wearing a cowel and my @wildesunglasses and realized Bill was on the other side photographing me. For a kid who grew up a nerd, having that happen was a bucket list moment. We talked for a few minutes when he stopped to get my name and I couldn't help but tell him how much I loved his work. Today the world lost a great talent. #rip #nytimes #photography #billcunningham  Unknown artist in the 13th district of Paris #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #paris #mural #streeartparis  I love watching tourists try to figure out what to make of @kaiaspire street art #Paris #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #streetartparis #kaiaspire
