Looking for a font similar to this..

Hi, I'm looking for a font similar to this. Doesn't need to be exact, just with gentle gradients and a slight 3D effect. I really like this and was looking for something similar.

The monochrome restrictions of Typography make it impossible to create this kind of shading gradient viable at multiple point sizes. Any kind of simulated grey scale will result in a large file size, and problems with memory usage when opened in preview.

If the grey shadows were done in pure black, it could be done, by a talented designer. Here's what the A might look like, if the darkest part of the shadow was made black, and the lighter part white:



I saved the original as a 256 colour bitmap to let MS Paint decide whether the graded shadow should be black or white.

Hope this helps someone identify something similar, if such a font exists.

Try the 30 days trial of Xara 3D Maker for these sort of effects.

Thanks for your help guys. I don't have a lot of characters so I might go ahead and attempt what meta said.
