Kerning like a designer

Design School:

It’s important to note here that kerning is a visual exercise; it’s about the perceived amount of space between letters rather than the actual distance between them. Kerning involves adjusting your typography to look right rather than creating mathematically equal spacing.

Teaching people about kerning is a lovely little game because then they’re aware when it’s bad. (relevant xkcd)
