Here is a little typography nerd piece but i like it a lot, and think this should actually become a real term.
From: Ironic Sans.
I agree… very clever and creative. I love the subtlety and the fact that it will be lost on so many.
That’s really great. I shared it with some other typesetters at my office.
Totally nerdie, love it
Very cute! I like it a lot. However….
Hey Charlie Bing,
What’s with the tone? It’s pretty easy to look up what kerning means and thus get the joke. So why would it be lost on people? Why do you revel in the fact that you can do the elitist wink, wink, nudge, nudge “I know something you don’t know!”
Yeesh. Reminds me of the condescending nature of those design stickers. Sorry, didn’t mean to jump all over you – I just get fed up with jargon worship sometimes.
Hey FrogPrince… didn’t you see the smiley!? Sheesh.
I’m not revelling in anything: I just think it really is a very inside joke… and I think it was likely meant as such.
