Penguin spacing lessons

The baffled little guy all by himself at the far right reminds us that Gothic text letters, unlike Gothic capitals, seldom stand on their own.
After a week of learning from penguins, we can see that they have a lot more to teach us about letters, which are easy to imagine as living, breathing, behaving creatures. Always standing around in a crowd, penguins generally bunch up in cold weather and then spread out in warm weather.  Your letter spacing can do the same.    

You may also want to let the letters themselves--as well as the spaces between them--get wider.  

But do keep them a little more uniformly arranged than the ones here.
