See the website for the logo. I tried What the font, but it didn't recognize the "s" and "t". This might be custom vector work.

that line between the s & t is called a discretionary ligature, they appear between certain letter combinations in some fonts. I've found a close similar that is free DejaVu Serif Book – MephistonX Apr 5 '13 at 8:22

Looks like Century Schoolbook Roman to me:

The swirl on the 'st' is a stylistic ligature that's common among typographers (and available in many OpenType fonts), but pretty rare in real-world use. The gap in the crossbar of the 't' is probably custom.

Further reading on ligatures if you're interested.

Close, but not quite. – DA01 Aug 26 '13 at 16:53
@DA01 Which glyphs in particular are you looking at? The 'E' does look a bit more rounded on the arms, but that could just be customization. The only real idiosyncrasy is the gap in the crossbar of the 't'. I now see that it's in the "Representing creative artists" bit as well, which could still be customized, but I don't know for sure. – Brendan Aug 26 '13 at 18:19
Century has a lot of iterations. It's possible that it isn't that specific typeface, but I'm really confident that it's some kind of Century. – Brendan Aug 26 '13 at 18:20
it's definitely close. It's certainly some variant of Century. The tail of the 't' is one difference, though. The original example has it going straight up while the stock Century has it flaring out to the up to the right ever-so-slightly. – DA01 Aug 26 '13 at 18:57
@DA01 - I see what you're saying. And the more I look at that 'E', the more I see that it's just a touch different. Maybe I'll have to do some research on Century revivals! – Brendan Aug 26 '13 at 20:35

For "E" of "East" the font is Grad:
For the "ast" of "East" the font is Grad Alternate:

Nice find, but there's a whole bunch of little details in the logo (e.g. the serifs on the "s") that match Century Schoolbook better than any of the Grad variants. I'd say it's either some other derivative of Century Schoolbook that we haven't found yet, or just custom work based on it. – Ilmari Karonen Aug 26 '13 at 12:50
Mark does great work, but yea, that's not a match. – DA01 Aug 26 '13 at 16:53
