What do you think of this kerning? What adjustments should I make?
Could be ok for a text, but for a logo it has some flaws. The advantage of this case is that all joints are between a straight stroke and a curve stroke.
Taking x as a reference kerning between the straight and the curve, all the red arrows shows different separations.
This is my tip: imagine this logo like a giant construction on a wall, small mistakes will grow larger at the same time.
Edit with visual aspects:
- The resulting space between K and e is large enough to reduce the kerning since it visually gives some separation. In the resulting logo this space is bigger than the separation between e and r, when it should be the opposite or at list the same. The reference point is the closest stroke to the e, in this case the bottom oblique stroke.
- The r vertex next to the o should have at least the same separation that exists between two curved strokes or a curved and a straight stroke to visually be equated with the rest.
- If the separation between e and r is the parameter to follow between a curved and a straight stroke, the separation between u and a should be the same since it is the same situation.
- a kerning c must be equal to e kerning r because these spaces have exactly the same visual relationship.
Two quick tips for checking kerning... squinting your eyes, and inverting the text... by doing this you can focus more on the contrast and white-space and be less distracted by the actual letters themselves.
This confirms what I thought when I first saw it - Looks OK to me.
Edit - A comment above drew attention to a previous answer which includes my suggestions here, and a lot more besides. A must read.
My suggestions are much like @Danielillo's feedback. His use of the geometric spacing simply indicated a problem I see visually in a much clearer way.
If it was me, I'd bring the first e closer to the K. The r is too close to the o, and then the spacing on the a and the c should either shrink or expand to match the decision around the o.
When the text is made smaller, the overall look is slightly improved, but I'd still close the gap between the K and the e.
However, the use/size of the final text definitely has to be taken into account as stated.
If you were designing a font using that as a sample, end-users would be making fine adjustments to kerning anyway.
