I don't recognize it. You might have to go to a desktop publishing USENET group or to a font vendor to identify it.

I would't get my hopes up, this could be a modified font, or a brand new one made by the guy who runs the site.

Still nice though, I know I always try to alter fonts if I use them for logotypes.

It's a sans serif that has a updated 1970s feel and is prob. purchased from a type foundry. I doubt mvpa had it done special, but could be. I bet their logo font was done for them.

The best thing to to is to search some type sites until you see it -- could take awhile.

Try

www.fontsonline.com
http://www.adobe.com/type/main.jhtml
www.fontbureau.com

More than enough to get you started. You can prob. find something that's close in look and feel.

Good luck.

Did a very quick look, here's one that comes very close in look and feel. You can see how subtile this task is:

I think it is manipulated. Serifs has been cut from the right side of stems, the a is v upside down and the font has been italicized and possibly condensed vertically in post - so to speak. The whole thing has been softened or dulled for some reason.

Anyway, here's a not too distant relative: http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detai...FMT&pid=204486

this has a prettysuccessful rate of return. Granted, the idea is that if you need the font, they can sell it to you as they represent several font venders, but the service is free & pretty good.

You upload a sample of the font (in tiff, jpeg, etc.) The cleaner and larger your sample, the better your results. It does a feature extraction & asks you to confirm the identity of each of the letters. You then tell it okay & it returns the closest possible matches in its database ranked in order of confidence.
