tried the site what the font with no luck. I am looking for a font (Free since for one time use in a title) that has this leaning "A". I know the font is a popular one as I've seen it in many designs as of late.

enter image description here

Here is an example of a similar font found in an image online. If anyone has any ideas what font this or one similar please let me know

Thanks in advance

Does it matter which side the 'A' tilts to? –  Johannes Apr 27 '12 at 5:03

The font is a redrawn Avant Garde (J U and E are different). Avant Garde was originally designed with alternative forms such as the straight-sided A you illustrate — and another leaning the other way, along with lots of other combining forms. That particular A would have been used in a word like NATURAL, so it butted up against the N and slid under the T.

Example at MyFonts — use JOURNEY as the sample text. The R is the clincher.

Edit: there are examples of the alternative combining forms at FontShop. But I very much doubt that there is anything free.

That's it! Thank you. I have Avant Garde, but not the alternatives. Will probably mock something up in illustrator since this is only for the title in a video presentation. Thanks again for your answer. –  danferth Apr 27 '12 at 17:05
