  • This is a logo for a fake tv show about travelling around the world . Any suggestions to improve the logo or something thing to do with the double B in the front ?
    I think you are on the right track. For me, the first version works better because the mark-up colour of the line is picked up again in the pin. I'm not sure what to make of the distorted pin in the second image, to be honest. It doesn't suggest a location, or "place", which is probably what you were trying to achieve with the pin as a stylistic device. What will definitely give the logo the final touch in the end...

  • How often do you have to tune font kerning yourself?
    For body text, I mostly use the font's settings set to optical. For larger text, I always kern myself. It's my superpower. If you want to practice, play the Kern Game. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Product design and UX design resources – Degreeless.Design
    This link: https://type.method.ac/# on the page is absolutely fantastic. You have to drag letters until the kerning is proper. Will be checking out the rest of the resources soon! - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Tools for type designers!
    If you want to train your eye for wordmarks this is quite fun https://type.method.ac/ ... But yeah, I'm thinking more type designers that need to kern 300+glyphs. Source: over 1 year ago

  • What skillgap have you found that juniors are missing to take the next step?
    And if you want to train your eye for micro-typographic detail, there’s «Kern Type» although it helps if you read Bringhurst before that to get an idea of kerning principles. It’s a neat little web game and the same developer has a few more games for typographers and designers on his site. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • I am building the funnest running app. What do you all think of this UI?
    It's a profession for people that like to be absolut perfectionists. If you're a perfectionist, you will like kerning. Here is a short game what kerning is about: https://type.method.ac. Source: about 2 years ago
  • A minimalistic logo for a community in my city.
    I guess it's a lot of practice, but sure you need to know what to look for. I watched this video today https://youtu.be/DwzyRNcLkao and the following page for practice was recommended in it. https://type.method.ac/. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Im 23 years old, male whose a graphic design student online at a university
    Read this post on how to put together your portfolio, and you'll be headed in the right direction. Focus on the fundamentals of typesetting, so kerning, tracking, leading, avoiding widows/orphans, etc. And learning how to pair typefaces. This is a fun typeface pairing game my instructor had us do in school, and I found it really helpful to learn why certain typefaces pair well with others. This game is great for...

  • Any opinions ?
    This is my favorite resource I use to sharpen my eye for kerning. Maybe it’ll help you too. Https://type.method.ac/. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Gary Gulman On How The States Got Their Abbreviations
    That documentary about Helvetica is amazing. I actually recommend it to my students and show them the kerning game as examples of how design choices typically become invisible unless done poorly. Many people don't recognize the absolute amount of work it takes to create a font that is pleasing to the eye. Source: over 2 years ago
  • What do you think of my business card design? Can i make it better?
    Pardon my spelling, I got it wrong earlier (edited). Kerning is adjusting the space between letters. Here’s a fun tool/game to learn. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Hi everyone I just wanted to show a logo that I was working on for my business . I would like anybody to give me any feedback on the color if possible or what you all think of it 🙂
    I normally do two things, I squint my eyes and look if every space has the same width. Then I turn the text around and do the same. If you'd like you could practice here. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Three minimalist 2d landscapes I’ve made.
    For now, I would say stay away from text. There is tons of resources online to teach you. Even on YouTube. The gist of it isn't very complex, it just takes practice and a trained eye. Here is a fun little game to help you along https://type.method.ac. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Logo I designed last year that became public in February vs the 2 logos in conversation this week
    Check out Kerntype. It’s a small game to help with kerning. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Suggestions for an on-demand typography course?
    It's really difficult to teach someone good spacing and hierarchy for typography quickly. Are there any relatively quick online courses? There's a great one here for kerning, but it would be perfect if it included all aspects of type. Even a video course would be great as long as it's more visual than chatty. Source: over 2 years ago
