The Mighty King Kyrn!
Here's my second entry under my Side Stitch comic series, which explores the fun and adventurous world of design. Every BBR employee has a turn at writing a blog from the office, but I figured it'd be fun to do a comic for mine. Thusly, Side Stitch was born.
This episode displays the dangerous of poor typography. "Kerning" is a typographic term that means "adjusting the space between letters in a word." So, to "kern" something means to correctly space the letters in a word. Once someone points out how a word is SUPPOSED to look, you'll start to notice imperfections in signs and advertisements all around your town. Not EVERYONE cares about typography, believe it or not.
And those people feel the wrath of 7-ton gorilla fists.
