I am trying to find the fonts used in the following Logo for the Swiss newspaper "La Liberté". I've been trying to use whatthefont.com, but haven't had much success.

I can tell you right now that the subtitle's Arial.

By inverting the colors, removing the shadow/glow, replacing the background color with white, and straightening the letters; these were my results:

WhatTheFont Search Results

(do a search for each fonts name to find the links)

The closest two are:

  1. Country Western SC Fill
  2. Beton EF Bold Condensed

However, none of them are quite right completely. My guess is it's a derivative of some other typeface or custom job.

  • @alisamii, you might want to try typophile.com/typeid to see if you can get an answer there.

I would have laid odds on the subtitle being Univers 55...

    The R gives the lie to that. Univers R has a vertical right leg. Commented Dec 8, 2014 at 11:32
