Logos are often considered the image of a product or service and is thought of as the center of all branding endeavors. If you are trying to be a legitimate company, you’ve probably had someone (or yourself) create a logo. We don’t always get logo design right. And sometimes it’s just time for a newer, trendier logo. We may see it a couple months or years later and decide that it’s time to redesign or update what we have. Redesigning a logo can be just as hard as creating a new one. Some questions you may ask yourself are: How much do you want to change it? What elements should be kept? And will the redesign still be recognizable as your brand?

Kerning: What is kerning and why is the space between letter pairs so important?

Kerning is the space between letter pairs. When you set type in any pro-grade graphics program (like Photoshop, Fireworks, etc.), you have the ability to alter the space between letter pairs, making minute adjustments until your type looks just right.

What's that you say? "It looks fine without adjustments of the space between letter pairs?" Put down those pork rinds and pay close attention Cletus...I'm going to enlighten you.

Proper kerning is, in my opinion, the single biggest thing -- and the first thing I notice, that separates the work of professional designers from that of 'apprentice' or 'wanna-be' designers.

The amount of empty space between letter pairs 'wants' to be equal, and that's the goal of hand kerning your type.
