How are Your Type Spacing Skillz? Play Kerntype

This HTML5 game by UI designer Mark MacKay for Method Action is an awesome idea & fun challenge wrapped in a beautiful user interface. Your mission is to use a mouse, keyboard or touch screen to hand-kern letters to a perfect, eye-pleasing position. When you submit, your results are compared to their final kerns, and your score is determined based on your proximity.

If you think your solution was better, they welcome you to submit your version and view it compared to the original. Others can then weigh in one who is the champion (spacing smackdown!). Play KernType now, and don't forget to tweet your results!
