The Spurs won it all. The Finals are over. But the tweets keep rolling in.
It’s 2014 and tweeting at someone with that blue check mark could land you on Jimmy Kimmel’s next compilation of mean tweets
and just because we can’t get enough…
Don’t blink, you may miss it.
You see the Google logo a lot. So you’d think that a fundamental change to how the letters are placed would be noticeable to a big swath of Internet users.
Or nah…We’re talking one-pixel shifts here.
The change consists of a one pixel rightward shift on the lowercase G and a one pixel down and right shift on the L. The change is part of a process called kerning, in which designers carefully space letters to be visually pleasing and consistent. Google’s minor change is an example of how the process of kerning can go on for a long time and can seem slightly compulsive.
As Redditor, nal1200, pointed out, “The bottom of the ‘l’ and ‘e’ did not line up horizontally and that, my friend, must have driven some design employee crazy.”
None of us can see it, but don’t let that stop you, Google. You do you.
