    This looks really good.

    Some obvious kerning pairs I spot right away: LT LV OM UA 74. Some are too tight, some seems untouched. And all pairs of (letter.) and (letter,) (for example A. and A,)

      Cool. Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep tweaking.

      Are you using anything special to view pairs? I just have a large text doc with a huge assortment of them. Not sure if that's the best way.

        I believe what you have is the way to go at a high level.

        I do not use anything special - just type them out in different programs (ai, psd, word, ppt, etc).

        For detailed level, I usually look at all possible pairings: lowercase lowercase lowercase punctuation uppercase uppercase uppercase punctuation uppercase lowercase numeral numeral numeral punctuation numeral uppercase numeral lowercase uppercase numeral lowercase numeral

          Awesome. Thanks for the response. I made some tweaks last night and got a new version up with some of the glaring kerning oversights taken care of. Thanks a lot for your help!
