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 Grin

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 ?
