Word of the Day

Kerning: is the spacing between letters. A standard kerned word will have an even amount of space between each letter. A person can set a dramatic tone by kerning a word with more or less kerning. More kerning will have more space between letters. Less kerning will have less space between letters. Next time you read the newspaper or a book, look carefully at the kerning. Sometimes a publication will use more or less kerning depending on how they want the words to fit on a page.
