I'm designing a labeled circle and so far it's been a struggle of finding the perfect vertical position for a one letter label.

Currently I have two options.

enter image description here

Which one seems better centered?

    The one on the left, anyway your letter A is extreme in this visual alignment if youd put B in the image your result might be different. :) Yes you can not just win. – joojaa Jan 20 '16 at 6:04
  • The key point of contention for me is the horizontal line in A. On the left it's dead center every which way, but since the top/bottom parts are not proportional it seems off. Thanks for the input @joojaa :) – Morgan Wilde Jan 20 '16 at 9:34

    Experiment with several different letters. You can't base your decision on a dataset of 1. – Lauren-Clear-Monica-Ipsum Jan 20 '16 at 11:08

    "Bilbo" definitely looks, and most likely is actually centered. You're just being visually disappointed with the letter "A" in the particular font you are using. Stick with the actual center of the circle so that it is consistent regardless of the interior content. – paulmz Jan 20 '16 at 22:30
