A couple of elusive faces

I have tried WhatTheFont with no luck so far, so I'll try it here too.

I need to recreate this logo - all they have is this JPEG from their website, the creator of which is no longer available.

AS4FSLogo.jpg

Ignore the Zapf Chancery on the left - I'm after the 2 faces on the top right and bottom right. WhatTheFont suggested Penumbra Serif and Schneidler for the top one, but neither of those is right. For the one on the bottom it suggested URW Linear, Ocean Sans, and Swank Gothic, but those aren't right either.

If you can't get the fonts identified, and all you need to to is

re-create the logo, you already have a fine raster image. To create a

vector version of the entire logo or any of its parts, you could

auto-trace the image and then do a manual clean-up until the result is

a satisfactory match.

Bottom right san serif is 'Formata' from Berthold (possibly slightly stretched).

Thanks! I knew it looked familiar, but I just couldn't place it. Now I'll just have to search through our font collections to see if we have that weight.

That's Plan "C". (That's always Plan C - or D, or E, or whatever the last resort is ).

Plan "B" will be to use Trajan Bold for the top right text (even though that's not quite it) and Formata (see above) for the bottom right text.
