Try WhatTheFont. –  plainclothes Feb 5 '13 at 18:20

It was pretty useless for this one. –  Brendan Feb 5 '13 at 18:21
    
Tried it already...the results were very uplifting...nothing!!! –  alisamii Feb 5 '13 at 18:23

@Brendan thank you for making the image visible. –  alisamii Feb 5 '13 at 18:23
    
I couldn't find a good match for the font, but at least I found a bigger version of the logo where you can actually see the details; see above. (Tip for anyone else who ever needs to find a print-quality logo for an organization that doesn't provide a convenient visual identity kit online: try looking inside PDF files.) –  Ilmari Karonen Feb 28 '13 at 21:04

Since WTF couldn't help, I'll try my obsessive eye.

How about a modified version of Russell Square?

Russell Square was most certainly the starting point

Modifications are very simple with a purely geometric design like Russell.

  1. Change the terminals on the s
  2. Adjust the t a bit
  3. Widen the characters across the board

No need to mock my answer, I was just giving my input :). That being said Russell Square is a much better fit. –  Johannes Feb 5 '13 at 18:45
    
Sorry, no mocking intended. Just commenting on the impatience of the asker ;) –  plainclothes Feb 5 '13 at 18:47
    
@plainclothes My impatience comes from the fact that the cleint wants to see a design yesterday!!! Otherwise, I think your answer is better, and sorry Johannes, your attempt was good, but plainclothes' answer is much closer, so I have to change the accept to his. –  alisamii Feb 5 '13 at 19:15
    
Your rush is understood. Glad I could help. –  plainclothes Feb 5 '13 at 19:19
    
No offense taken. Plainclothes' answer is much better suited and I'd prefer it to be the accepted answer. Best of luck on your project! –  Johannes Feb 5 '13 at 20:01

There are plenty of very similar square fonts, but I couldn't find any exact match either.

Using the larger logo I added above, WhatTheFont suggests Gaudi ND, which does match the general shape of the letters, but lacks the rounded feel and the distinctive line ends of the font in the logo:

Gaudi ND

A few other similar fonts I found include Axion RX-14, Elevon Corp and Paragraph, but none of them really match those details either.

Also, after having stared at those pointy-round line tips for a while, I'm starting to feel more and more convinced that I've seen them before in some other logo. But that might just be déjà vu kicking in.

Edit: Here are a few more fonts with a similar shape and line ends. Still no exact match, though.

Biome Regular:

Genos Regular:

Ps. The small www.safehost.net text is Eurostile Extended or some clone of it. –  Ilmari Karonen Mar 1 '13 at 23:38

While I don't have an exact match, I find that a font that has a very similar feel, is Lastwaerk -- Here is a preview of it, saying "safehost". It's free for both personal, and commercial use, so that's always a good thing.

Other than that I don't know any fonts off the top of my head that could be this font. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Thank you. As you said, it isn't exact, but it is close enough for now. I have requested that they provide me with either the original font name or a vector of the logo, but until then, I just need something to do a mockup for them. If anyone else has a closer match, I'd still appreciate it. –  alisamii Feb 5 '13 at 18:34
