A Kern Too Far

Other possible titles for this blog post were: "Kerning the Hard Way", "3rd Degree Kerns All Over my Body", and "That Time I Almost Committed Seppuku" The spacing of Sharp Sans was a hard fought battle that bloodied both sides. It was a brutal couple months, but it got me to where I needed to be. Looking back, I truly understand what Matthew Carter meant when he said "I'd take a well spaced font over a well drawn font any day."
