This question already has an answer here:

We just purchased a logo from stocklogos.com. The logo was listed in 2011 and the original designer has proven hard to reach. Does anyone know what the font used in this logo is?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Small world...I asked a font identification question in January involving the same font. Voting to close as (more or less) a duplicate! –  Brendan Apr 22 '13 at 18:15
FYI for anyone that cares, using fonts from Da-Font are mostly a crapshoot in general. Not that there aren't a few good, appropriate typefaces available there, but most of them are like this...poorly design typefaces. I'm not sure what you hope your logo will communicate, but this typeface feels very dated, with poor spacing, poor balance, and awkward proportions. I'd suggest perhaps just choosing a new typeface. –  DA01 Apr 22 '13 at 18:36
@Brendan The original artist actually replied back to me. It is called Venus Rising. The slice in the "E" is his own edit I presume. Edit - I didn't notice that you had an answer on your question. I'm glad to know it was the same font. –  Chev Apr 22 '13 at 21:30
@DA01 - Again, this question isn't about the aesthetic of the font. I'm glad you are talented at what you do and have strong opinions about what is good and what is bad in design, but this question is not about how much you like or dislike this font. It's a simple identification question. –  Chev Apr 22 '13 at 21:32
@AlexFord Yep. It is. But this is also a web site full of graphic design professionals, so you're going to have to assume there's to be shouting from the peanut gallery too. ;) –  DA01 Apr 22 '13 at 22:01

The original artist contacted me. The font is called Venus Rising.


Okay, I got some additional clarification. The logo I put in this question does indeed use N-Gage font. However, we asked him to modify the logo for us. When he did that he switched to using a modified version of Venus Rising. Here is our modified version of the logo in the question.

Now that you guys have pointed out the subtle differences I can tell that this one he submitted to us is Venus Rising and the original one in the question is N-Gage.

Thanks again everyone.

I don't want to go against the original artist, but...are you sure it's Venus Rising? It's a very similar font to the N-Gage one I referenced but it is ever so slightly different. Look at the 'T' in "Tunnel" - see how the right side of the 'T' is longer than the left? N-Gage does the same thing; Venus Rising does not. Those atypical 'E' and 'A' glyphs are baked into the N-Gage font as well. –  Brendan Apr 22 '13 at 22:51
Yeah I verified with him. It's a modified version of Venus Rising to look slightly more like ngage, except that it doesn't have the connecting letters like ngage. –  Chev Apr 23 '13 at 14:47
I got some additional clarification. Please see the edit to my answer. He was right when he told me Venus Rising, he just wasn't talking about the original logo (the one in my question). –  Chev Apr 23 '13 at 15:02
Tangentially, I'd do something about that black-and-white version, it just looks messy. Maybe draw the ovals with a white interior and outlines of varying thickness to simulate the fade-out? –  Ilmari Karonen Apr 23 '13 at 15:43
Don't worry, we're still doing a back and forth and I actually brought up that exact concern. –  Chev Apr 23 '13 at 15:58

it looks like an edited version of
