Mind the Gap: Keeping your Kerning Right
with Ben Kiel

Kerning is at once one of the more tedious jobs in typeface design and one of the more important things in polishing a typeface for release. This one day workshop will focus on kerning with MetricsMachine and cover strategies for reducing the tedium of kerning. Topics such as interpolating kerning, how best to put kerning data into your font for various platforms and uses, and proofing and testing kerning will all be covered.
