Identified fontPresident Suggested by fmontpetit
I saw this on myfonts.com yesterday - and kept staring at it - the "R" reminded me of Quorum - but it wasn't... I remembered a Titling font that started with a W - but no match...
Closest I could see would be something like Penumbra Serif - it's close - but it is not exact.
Thanks for your reply Heron2001.
President by linotype seems to be pretty close - but also not exact. Oddly, myfonts.com's font ident feature wasn't able to find it.
I do also have a "B" and a "Y" if that would help.
URW's President 85% compressed is a perfect match...

What do you mean by compressed? If you look at the serifs on the "M", they are slightly upwards pointing.
I mean the lenght has been manually decreased to 85% of the original. The serifs are already pointing upwards. Squeezing the letters accentuate the effect.
Here's what it looked like when i tried it : http://i.imgur.com/Cz1Nz2k.png
nice find fmontpetit -
Thanks fmontpetit, that's great! Do you know how to reduce the length by a percentage in Illustrator?
Sure. Just go in your type panel (command+T) and make sure the options are shown (there's a small menu on the top right corner or you can double click the word 'Character' you should see this:
Alternatively, you could just type your words and then use Object > transform > scale...
Thanks, I created the outline first and then transformed it.
By the way, do you happen to have a copy of the font?
Haha, OK guys, I knew it was a long shot. Don't worry, I'll actually buy the font.
Thanks for all your help!!
