I'm all new at Graphic Design, so correct me if you can. I found this graphic picture today from Earth Hour's website for 2012:

I really want some fonts that looks a bit like them. Someone having a clue which family they are in? And maybe know about some similar fonts? Appreciate any thoughts and ideas.

Do you have a link to the site by any chance? I went to but it was set up for 2013. – Brendan Mar 21 '13 at 21:10
I did not find the right date in the archive, but it looks pretty much the same. @Brendan – sjarmenitt Mar 21 '13 at 21:13

So last year's typography looks to be the same as this years (2013):

If the text is selectable, you can figure out what font it is by "Inspecting Element":

Looks like the font is WWF Regular, which I'm assuming is a proprietary font.

If you want something similar, check out Interstate Condensed Regular or Myriad Pro Condensed Regular. League Gothic or Oswald could maybe do the trick if you're looking for free fonts.

I just tried it with the service WhatTheFont and found that Alternate Gothic suits your needs pretty well too.
