Kerntype is a online game showing you the importance of proper letter spacing. Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters. Typographers call this activity kerning. Your solution will be compared to a typographer’s solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it.

  1. Bad url to kerntype ;) the correct one is

  2. This is so fun! haha! :D

  3. I love this! And need it for work – I’m not a designer, but send design files often enough that I feel badly that I’m so bad at kerning :)

  4. It’s okay. But you can’t kern the letters on the ends. Too many times I would want to bring every letter in tighter. But you can’t. Just not real enough for me.

  5. i saw/played this the other day. love it. best type game ever.
