Think you're good at kerning. Compare.
this is fun
out of 100
I don't agree with some of his recommendations. Especially "holly".
I'm Jon D and I approve this test.
87%. I only got 45 on the last one. I choked!
and choking is only for printing, not type.
I got a 90, but I screwed up a couple.
I can't get over that we're being "graded" on how close we get to one person's ideal kerning. I felt that the 100 wasn't always right on most of these.
The scoring is based on some shite kerning to start with.
I'd like to see scores for:
Adobe Optical Kerning
Igino Marini's iKern
AutoKern Init :)
and some shit hot recognised typographers.
Then I'd like to see the scoring evolve to better resemble actual good kerning, as agreed – possibly!¡! – by the masters.
t's rare that we separate ourselves from our readers when choosing pieces to post on Joystiq, but with Method of Action's "KernType," we had to make an exception. You see, folks, our love for games is important, but our distinctly less relatable love/obsession with visual design is just as strong, which is why we immediately fell head over heels for KernType.
same here, 96%
Not sure I want my creative director to see my score on some of these. :)
My wife is a psychologist. She's never heard of kerning.
100% right off the bat. 95% average.
