Happy Kerning!

Kerning (means adjusting white spacing in a proportional font.)
Prior to the DTP, designers used to adjust white spacing one by one by handwork in the old days.
However, you will never reach the big concept if you are worried about small thing in the beginning. That’s right.
But, when I am standing in the platform at my subway station every morning, I can’t help being conscious about this particular sign’s kerning.
Today I became free of such frustration.


The NY subway signs are quite bald and clear and I believe these signs will put into tourists’ minds as well as one of the NY impressions.
Whether the subway with the accurate signs come into the station or not, I think it’s a great design system.
One thing, I hope this can be tad more sophisticated since it’s in public.


Cherry blossom

“Thank you” to whom had planted such cherry blossom trees in the park.
Spring has come. Perfect!
