Who wants to kern my logotype(!)?
0

I've got a logo and the letterforms are a nightmare for perfect kerning. Here's what I've got right now. Anybody got suggestions for improvement?

(and yes, "Heagy" is a last name and it's terrible. Pronounced "HAY-gee" where the g is hard like in "goodness gracious that name sounds like you're spitting!")

The 'EA' 'combination' would slightly bother me, like that

EA combo tightened. Definitely had to do that.

Anybody else think anything's a couple millimeters off?

Second version looks about right.

I think the first version was about right for the HEA combination, especially at the small size, while the AG wants a slight increase and the GY wants an even smaller increase, these alterations are only hair's* difference.
In the second version I would consider closing up the HE slightly it is creating a quite distinct vertical.

The subtlest of tweaking. Thanks for the feedback. How's the 3rd GIF look?

Just a thought:
This logo has similar letters
and works fine in my opinion:
