    Looking for a font

    I'm trying to find a font which looks like it's in the process of being designed. You can see the circles and lines on which the font is built, but these haven't been "rubbed out" so to speak. I haven't a clue what you would call this, but I know what it looks like. Any directions offered would be gratefully received.

    dafont.com is normally a good place to turn up any fonts, and all free (or mostly, at least)

    I had looked on dafont.com but as I hadn't a clue which category it might be under, there are a lot of fonts, and I'm getting close to retirement. I did take another stab and chose Grid which is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks again.

    If you can find a font that is somewhat similar tow what you are looking for you might find these two sites helpful:

    Link 1: Identifont - Identify fonts by appearance, find fonts by name

    Find your font according to how it resemles another.

    Link 2: What Font is

    Supply an image of a font that is similar and have this site try to find a match.

    It sounds like you are after a blueprint-style font?

    I think I have found an even better font. It's called FFF Tusj.

    Thanks for that. I did look at something similar, but decided on something a little more formal. You can see it here. The font is called Leonardo.
