We’re always looking for new media at House Industries, so we jumped at the chance to help a motorcycle racer friend lay out his new leather suit. For the type geeks in the audience, he has the unlikely name “Nate Kern.” For those of you who don’t know kerning is the optical spacing between characters in a typeface, something that we spend many sleepless nights thinking about. The lettering is by John Downer and the suit is beautifully cut by Vanson. As soon as John sends us the original brush version, we’ll make some T-shirts.
