    It was pretty useless for this one.

  • 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.)

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:

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.

  • Sorry, no mocking intended. Just commenting on the impatience of the asker ;) Feb 5, 2013 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.

  • Your rush is understood. Glad I could help. Feb 5, 2013 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!

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.
