I'm trying to make a poster for a class project, and I recently came across a poster that has this font.

enter image description here

It's a light, somewhat wide sans-serif typeface, but I'm not sure if it's Helvetica or Akzidenz or something similar. Does anyone know what this is?

  • @BillyKerr it didnt work very well – jstowell Jan 15 '20 at 19:23
  • It looks like a thin/light member of the Neutra family – superluminal Jan 15 '20 at 20:00
  • @superluminal it's pretty close, but not quite it. The bowl on the R is too big on Neutra – jstowell Jan 15 '20 at 20:40

This is custom but it's very similar to ITC Avant Garde. Tip: reverse image searching an image often brings up information, as here.


A reverse image search brings up the design archive this came from, as well as some details. It's CS Beta Bold https://www.experimentaljetset.nl/archive/comingsoon

Judging from the details provided by the archive, you likely won't be able to obtain a license for this family.
