Font match?
Can anyone please tell me what font was used to create this logo by chance? Any/all help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Font match?
Looked through my font library (vista) & tested in Gimp 2.8.6 correction: 2.8.4
You may have to download/install the below font/s:

"Levenim MT Bold" at size: 50 for the "community" part
or
"Verdana Bold" at size: 50

*size depends on you, to get the leveled look, highlight one letter and adjust the line spacing 1 letter at a time.
See: "6.6.2. Options" http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-tool-text.html

For once agreement with Ofnuts Wink

Looks like one of the Futura family, probably the commercial (pay-for) one. The form of the capital C together with the rounded u and the descender on the y point that way. The i is not an i it is a j

You could try http://www.fontpalace.com/font-download/Futura-Bold/

If you are trying to reproduce this, do not try one line of text. Each letter on its own layer, moved to position.

Then I think all those layers reduced to a single layer and 'stretched' (resized) a little.

Yes, yes, that was the first thing I tried, being an advocate of the 2.8 text tool.

Did not work at all well with that Futura Bold font. Up and down no problem but horizontal spacing of individual letters to get that small overlap in places, not very successful.

Then of course that gradient, that would have to be applied to individual letters, so IMHO, might as well bite the bullet and do each on its own layer to start with.

edit, ploughing away through a CAD drawing all afternoon, so back to a bit of light work.

That Futura Bold font is still not an exact match, the 'o' & 't' are a little different but with a bit of manipulation you can get something close.
