Can anybody tell what is the name of this font?

I checked in WhatTheFont but it didn't show any results.

  • Seems like handmade letters. Could you post the link, where you found it? – Afterlame Apr 8 '13 at 17:08
  • sorry afterlame i have no link – Sumann Apr 8 '13 at 17:29
  • Do you only have a W and F? Any other letters? – Andrew Leach Apr 8 '13 at 18:00

    You can also ask at typophile.com/typeid . Normally you get answers pretty quickly. Don't forget to also post the answer here if you get it answered in the typophile forum! – leugim Apr 8 '13 at 18:43

The closest match I could find so far is P22 Constructivist Line, which has an almost identical W, although the F is different:

A few other Art Deco stencil fonts with a similar W that I found are:

Ritz Stencil JNL:

FP Palina:

Waddem Choo NF:

Perhaps the best known typeface in this style is Futura Black, whose W is similar, but lacks the sharp bottom corners:

I haven't managed to find anything with that triangular F yet, though.

  • The W is spot on but the F is completely different, weird. – DᴀʀᴛʜVᴀᴅᴇʀ Apr 24 '13 at 15:38

    The F in the question was previously used by F-Prot as their logo. I reckon the font is drawn, especially if the only letters are W and F. – Andrew Leach Apr 24 '13 at 17:53
  • @AndrewLeach: If you mean this logo (which was, apparently, actually used by F-Secure for several years after the two product lines split), I actually had the exact same initial reaction, but on closer inspection they're really not that similar -- except, that is, for the obvious matter of being a letter F drawn in the shape of a triangle. – Ilmari Karonen Apr 24 '13 at 18:46

I was trying to identify a typeface several months ago and although WhatTheFont didn't automatically identify it, the WhatTheFont Forum quickly found the answer for me, so definitely try their forum as well.

that type of font is considered a "techno font". try searching a few font sites that offer techno fonts and some allow you to preview the font so enter "W" and "F"
