    The overshoot on the C necessitated it being nudged down a tad, to maintain the hairwidth spacing. However, there’s very little overshoot on this display cut. Also, the K is rotated, again to deal with overshoot. Still, these small adjustments don’t jump out, the focus is on spacing, not alignment.

    I like Seth Meyers' late-night political pieces which use this as a title card, with some very deliberate line-to-line alignments:

    Better execution of a similar idea.

    In all fairness, I push spacing for similar reasons often, if it helps the message.

    Fair enough, I should have presented my example as something that the original reminded me of, but made with different intentions so not normatively comparable.
