Looks a bit like this one (link to zipped TTF).

Close, but the 'r' is different.

Moreover, the r is different between "Premium" and "More" leading me to believe they custom made the "r" for the title because the "r" in that font looks ugly.

So, yeah, you're right, C_D. :)

C_D has already nailed it, but for future curiosity/questions IndentiFont is a great tool.

Best answer: Close, but no cigar. My FontShop coworker Stephen Coles of typographica fame tells me with no hesitation it's Eclat.

A similar question was asked on the typophile forums in July. The discussion includes some commentary by the designer.

Quasistoic - Most of the fonts on MyFonts are done by enthusiasts in their spare time. You're not going to get great kerning, but as long as you're not working with fancy paths, you probably won't notice it. Also, they're free. But thanks for giving credit to the original author.

Most of the commercial fonts available on the internet are done by enthusiasts in their spare time. The rights to license those fonts are then usually sold to one of the major foundries (Agfa-Monotype, Linotype, Bitstream, etc), who then make a real profit on licensing those fonts.

MyFonts is owned and run by Bitstream. While MyFonts does offer many fonts from obscure foundries, it is otherwise just a font reseller (granted: with a pretty damn good website). Just about all font resellers offer some fonts for free.

Response by poster: On behalf of the friend on whose behalf I asked (parse that!) thank you all!
