kerning, the game

Are you up to the challenge? Are you design nerd enough to think this is fun? If you are like me and answered yes to both questions then you are in the right place.

"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 typographer's solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it. Good luck!"

Now get to Kerning! 

What was your score? :)

art by Chris Sauter, wish you were here

It is amazing how people can start with the same tools and materials and each person can come away with a wide variety of results. Art, it is much more than eye candy it is a never ending process. The process starts over each time someone experiences it for the first time.

If I walked into Home Depot my mind thinks of all the things I could make but I can honesty say, I would not have thought to make what artist Chris Sauter makes. All he has is drywall, a jigsaw, and a plan. Taking everyday things and deconstructing them into shapes and putting them back together again. Art is truly amazing.
