Kerning is an optimization of the whitespace. It’s part of the visual design of a font.

Before kerning begins, it is important to space the font really well. Don’t use kerning to fix spacing problems!

Kerning workflow

  1. define kerning groups
  2. create kerning pairs (using groups)
  3. iterate

Defining kerning groups

Creating kerning pairs
