Why kerning is important in graphic design

Kerning is targeted: It adjusts the spaces between specific letter pairs to adjust the spacing created by the shapes of the other letters, which can make the characters look too far apart or too close together. The term comes from the archaic French word carne, which means “corner” (these days, it’s a slang pejorative that could be translated genteelly as meathead).
