Hi everyone, I need some help with the kerning on this one. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanx
I'm no pro and wouldn't mind getting a more technical guide to how to approach kerning but optically it looks like the EA might be a bit tight.
I am certainly no pro either, but the RA looks a little spacey to me - or maybe everything else looks too tight.
Tylor: basically the goal of kerning is just getting an even optical distance between letterforms. There is no mathematical way of doing it, it must be optical. Basically its a process of printing it out and tweaking it. So your opinion is just as good as anyone's. The most important thing to kern appropriately to the shape of the letter hence HH < needs mores space than > OO .
To me the R and the A seem tight. The G seems abit loose.
Upon revisiting, the R & the A do look fine in terms of spacing - I'm bothered by their interaction because of the letterforms themselves.
To my early morning eye this looks right! Don't change.
i may be a lil' late on commenting. but look at the spacing between the r and a and the spacing between the b and i. they aren't equal. just compare the spacing in between and make sure that it looks natural. so that it reads easier and doesn't look broken up or awkward. the type is to work as a family, tight family.
