No idea, sorry.
It looks handmade to me.
Maybe you could "simple trace" that one if it's just for one word.
The result is not perfect but could be acceptable with a little more tweak here and there:

This is an Helvetica Neue Black, but in this case it's been carefully outlined by hand.
I'm sure of that because if you compare the 2 "a" they are not perfectly identical.
The result might be too perfect if you don't add a bit of handtrace in that one.
I suggest vectorizing it using only your nose to move the mouse, with your hands tied in your back.

Hi, according Nuno, there is fonts expert here ;D

Have you an idea for this font :



It seems to be "EurosStyle" but the "g" was not the same...

Thanks !

The top is Helvetica Neue Bold:



The other is indeed a eurostile font family, and yes, the "g" is different, but why not "steal" the "g" from another type that comes close, and then ajust it a bit so it will fit ?
