    I can't seem to figure out the typeface used in the attached sample. It made me thing of some kind of MS Office-bundled sans face or something along those lines. It came by way of some customer provided artwork -with all the lettering distorted (as usual). I'm guessing the proportions in the attached sample are close to normal.

    I can't put my finger on it. There are hints of Peignot, Optima and Ocean Sans in it. The "W" is a real puzzler.

    Yeah, I think Futura Light Condensed is the true source typeface for that lettering. The "designer" simply distorted the crud out of it, and performed a few more alterations on the letters (like the ''N") before ending the font torture. Another element in the artwork I received featured Penumbra Titling Light horizontally stretched to obscene proportions. Graphic design brought to you by the fun house mirror!
