Hey guys!

So I am relatively new to typography and I am having an issue I have been stuck on for quite a while so any help would be so much appreciated..

I am making a logo with text, the a 'T' after an 'S' at the end of a sentence. The arms of the 'T' make a large space between the 'S' and the 'T'.  When moved closer the arms of the 'T' touch the 'S' and it looks terrible.

I have tried taking off the arms of the 'T" to make them smaller, this just made it look odd. I have tried making the 'T' skinnier using the transform tool, this also looked weird..

I have tried looking online for different fonts with 'T's that would suit but I am finding it crazy difficult...

I tried drawing a 'T' out manually on paper and scanning it on.. I couldn't get it right and it still looked funny, I am starting to think it will never work and what I want to do it completely unachievable.

I will attach photos so my rambling makes a little sense.

Any help would be so so much appreciated xxScreen Shot 2018-02-09 at 00.17.53.png

Which program?

Why don't you make the small caps a little bit smaller?

One thing to consider is that the S and T look too far apart (given the overlap). Perhaps if you move it far enough the nasty visual effect will finimish: maybe the serif of the T could point down the snake of the S.

...if you do that you may want to snuggle the I up inside the arms of the H too.
