Kerning

One of these bothers me to know end. Can you guess which one?

Something's just not quite right...
Something’s just not quite right…
That's better!
That’s better!

Seriously, that first one annoys me to no end. It feels all lopsided for some reason. And they’re all over the place here since they changed our section of I-540 to I-49. That “right” one was in Louisiana when we were traveling.

And yes, I pulled the car over just to get a picture!

Until next time...

  1. Yeah, the first sign isn’t balanced. The space around the 49 is more balanced in the second sign. The way the 9 curves and matches the curve of the shield in the top sign exacerbates the lack of space.
