It could be Thirstype's "Infinity" squooshed and smashed into submission. They do have some alternate characters that help match. Not sure about that poor 'a'. My guess is that they rotated the poor 'e'.

Tiff (great name for a graphics persn BTW)

i tried to sqoosh and smash Infinity to get a similar result,,,it is VERY similar looking in nature, to that font but when mangle it to this end the result is nothing like the screenblast logo really

very nice try though

Jay -- Hmm. Yeah. It reads as a slam. Sorry. It was supposed to read more along the lines of "dominatrix having her way with the type". Which for me, is funny, but it doesn't read that way. Sorry. And anyway. I just said "it could be...".

John -- Do you still have my books?

i developed this face for screenblast a couple of years back. this is not a typeface which should be obvious, it is a custom trademark. so the type is built to be a display not a typeface or "font". these are the only letters that exist though i think sony has developed a whole face for it now which i had no part in. this was a very bad idea on their part being that this type of display face should be offset by a more neutral typeface. anyway there you have it mystery solved.

Tiffany, I work with Jay, the designer of this trademark. Funny hearing from you here. We were all laughing at your slam of the design when I noticed your name. Funny how small the world is.
Cheers

I like it when the original designers turn up to solve mystery ID's.
