Today we took part in an online Kerning Task (pictured) which gave us a look at how typefaces should be spaced apart evenly.

This online task gave us a series of words where some of the letters within the words had been altered into a non even spacing. Meaning we had to drag each letter and place it where we thought it should go (pictured).

Once we had completed all 10 kerning tasks, we were given an overall percentage based on how close we had come to correctly re-positioning the typefaces (pictured).

I found this task very useful as it broadens visualisation of type which will come into great use as we create our Type Tour Posters.
