Special Words or Phrases in relation to font building.

Post by ShawnDion » Wed Aug 27, 2014 6:00 pm

Long time ago I fell upon a website that mentioned key words and phrases that we're great to use for creating fonts with a natural feel unfortunately I can't remember where I had found such a list and I was wondering if someone here had seen them or might still have them archived?

Are you asking about terminology, Shawn, or are you referring to kerning text ("Aaron, Able, Ache, Advert, Aegis, Aft, Age, ...")?

@Dick Pape

Kerning text was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the information dunno why but the past few days the brain been playing tricks on me.

The sites are exactly what I was looking for and your preferred choice does seem to be the best option for the job.

Thanks again.
