Setting spacing and kerning: Creating a Font for Apps and Games with Glyphs

John Roshell demonstrates the process of setting the spacing in a font in Glyphs by beginning with a specific group of symmetrical letters, in order to establish a standard that the rest can compare to. He also introduces the process of kerning—or controlling the space between any pair of letters—and provides a handy guide to the most common offenders who don't like to play well with others.
