I need to know what font is used in this banner, which comes from the FAO website.


  • Hi, and welcome to Graphic Design SE. Have you tried whatthefont.com? Sep 3, 2013 at 18:40
  • Nice tool but don't give me a good answer in this case :-( Sep 3, 2013 at 18:48
  • Myriad is very close, but the y and a are slightly different: i.stack.imgur.com/NpJsG.png

  • The single-story 'g' and double-story 'a' are driving me crazy! 'a' glyphs that look like that tend to have double-story 'g' glyphs. Alright Sans is an...alright...choice, but it's not correct.

    Here's a normal size and enhanced version for use with whatthefont. Using this I was able to determine that it was Lucida Sans. Sep 4, 2013 at 1:53

  • Looks right, well done!

  • Ahh, great match! I had a feeling it had to be a relatively mainstream font...
