RT logo and kerning

Ref New RawTherapee Website

One of the very first tricks of the trade that I was taught almost 60 years ago regarding typesetting was squint with your eyes. If you do, you will immediately see where your kerning is off.

See example #3 here https://www.creativebloq.com/typography/5-embarrassing-examples-bad-kerning-91412894

Here, you can try for yourself: https://type.method.ac/

Now, if you apply your newfound knowledge onto RawTherapee’s logo, you will immediately spot that there is far too wide a gap between Ther and apee.

Have fun!

No squinting required. :wink:

Reason that I use minimalist text editors. Otherwise, I would be obsessively modifying the typography. :sweat_smile:
