Another Bauhaus influenced font.
I saw this company logo in a book on the best business card designs.
Thanks

oh well, thanks anyway Yves.
I may ask the company directly.
I'll update this post if I find out.

I had a look at Lee Fasciani (well, a tiny look as that's all their web site seams to allow). I prefer the straight horizontals of the acens font. You can get a better look at it here by the way. http://www.acens.com It's a Madrid based company. I'm in the process of writing to them to ask but my spanish isn't top notch so it's taking me time.

I've bought the Dispose font (in fact I guess I was the first client on union fonts :-) and I'm quite happy with it. here's the second thing I did with it (for a girlie shirt)

Nice font choice Adriano. The devil is in the details as they say.
I wrote to Summa Designs in Spain (they designed the logo for Acens). From their web site, they seem to have done quite a few font customization on other projects. Too bad if that's the case here.
and thanks Yves for identifying the other font used for text. Where can one buy Foundry Monoline. Their web site is very bare on info.
BTW, your link seems old. Their new address is
http://www.foundrytypes.co.uk

Bernard, the Clearasil company uses a quite similar face
(not an exact match either but perhaps a bit closer)

Got a reply from the design firm.
The logo was hand drawn.
Web site wasn't done by them by the way.

I don't know what to think of the Clearasil
logo. I'd love to see what they had before they
botched it with an outline. Their web site is
atrocious too. Very invasive.

If I knew the name I would recomend you
this one. No news about this one Yves, Adriano?

Bernard, can you give me the link for Summa Designs, I can't find it, thanks.

Yes, that "famous" font is quite nice for display.

Summa Design (Barcelona) is here

We already had this one, and we couldn't ID it. Sorry Bernard.

Try Lee Fasciani's delightful Dispose, a truly innovative
modern-retro face in a similar vein, and far better than
your sample IMHO.

Well, they use Foundry Monoline extensively on their
website, so this confirms my original hunch that the
logo might be a customized version of that face.

Nice girlie shirt, Adriano. :-)

No, I still regret very much we couldn't find any trace
of that one. I really like it a lot.
