One of my clients wants to know what font this is. I honestly dislike it but I would appreciate your help !

Thanks a lot in advance !

'Ambient', by Gabor Kothay.

( Edit-A-Bit: Nah, Sorry, Its not, but it may be an alternate. This could well be customized, say take a typeface, stretch it and cut it up. :)

I think it looks like Optima all cut-up and stretched out.

I was going to suggest same as Brad - but what a mess!

I checked Optima, way too much stroke modulation. This sucker is as rigid as a ruler.

The funny contrast on the 'S' makes me think that whatever this was, it was stretched out.

Yeah. Ambient is very close. Thanks Dav.

Anyone has another suggestion ? The company told me they just took an existing typeface for their logo. But like Lex said, it must have been stretched...

There is no doubt in my mind that this is based on Peignot Light. The N and S match up exactly when stretched. The H and A are slightly modified.

P.S. Suggest to your client that they go with a better logo.
