Learn to kern
If you've watched the speech Steve Jobs gave at Stanford University you're sure to remember how he spoke about taking a calligraphy class.
His love for perfectly executed type has permeated everything Apple has done over the years.
Like Steve I'm big on typography too.
Which is why I find the internet so frustrating.
With a handful of exceptions type on the web leaves a hell of a lot to be desired.
And when you try and do something about it the designers and developers always have a reason why it can't be done.
Which infuriates me to be honest.
Over the weekend somebody sent me a link to Kern Type.
A fun interactive experience where you can put your typesetting skills to the test.
Mine weren't that great to be honest. But I'm a copywriter so that's ok.
But if you're a designer or art director I recommend you click here and go check it out.
Trust me. It's worth it!
