Hi aero-owner,

Your font is Futura Light, to which an extrusion effect has been added. Futura Light is a commercial font tha can be purchased from:

Fusion, a free Futura clone, can be downloaded from:

http://www.pfonts.com/f/fusion.ttf

After setting the type in a vector program like Illustrator or CorelDraw, an extrusion was added to it to create the shadow effect.

Good Vibes!

well...it's close...but it's not "pointy" enough...the w in futura and fusion doesn't come to points....any other guesses from others?

The first and fourth strokes in the W do not have to have pointy ends. If you look closely at the logo the only thing you see is the shadow it projects and that shadow goes downwards. Since the strokes are all of the same weight, they can only be pointy where two strokes meet. Look at the end of the first stroke in the N. You can see where the stroke is "cut" because that end is pointing downwards like the shadow, but in the two ends on the W they point upwards, that's why in the logo it appears like they're not cut, but they are. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean.

By the way, you may have to adjust the overall width of the individual characters to replicate the logo exactly, but I'm pretty sure that's what the logo creator did as well.

Good Vibes!

Thanks for the points, but....  Eclipse is not the font. Eclipse's shadow goes up and to the right, while your sample logo's shadow goes down and to the right; and the shadow has no diagonal extrusion lines, it's more like a slightly larger version of the same character has been placed behind, not extruded as in your sample.

Good Vibes!

Not that it matters now...but...from the source of the original file...the font is Umbra BT viewable here http://store.bitstream.com/options.asp?handle=438&fontname=Umbra  really is a great font!

The first thing I thought when I saw your sample was Umbra, but after taking a look in my font catalogue I noticed a few differences. Mainly, the fact that the W is bigger than the other two letters, yet the amount of shadowing remains the same for all. This points to an extrusion made after the type has been set, otherwise the shadow on the W would be larger.

Good Vibes!
