A few weeks ago in my Computer Publishing class, our professor was teaching us about kerning. Part of our homework was to read about kerning and I stumbled upon a game called The Kerning Game. This is the link —->¬†http://type.method.ac/

I’ll admit I didn’t do so well, but it made me understand how to kern. It’s a fun way to practice and to realize how good you are at Kerning.

Thought I’d share.

I have found, yet, another female graphic designer- Marian Bantjes. She is a designer, typographer, writer and illustrator. She opened up her own design firm in 1994. She then began to blog, which caught Art Directors attention throughout North America. A lot of her work has beautiful typography- it amazes me. It’s beautiful, it’s bold, and it makes a statement. Take a look.
