Any ideas what this is anyone? Looks a bit like an avenir/Avante Garde inspired creation.

To me this looks like it could be made up from parts of Chalet, with the exception of the 'a' and 'p', which I think were custom drawn. I could find no sans serif faces with those two letters drawn that way, in a search of over 800 families.

Looks very amateurish to me -- check that 's' and 'g'. My money on it being a freefont.

Thanks chaps – Found some more examples. Apparently it was designed by an Irwin McFadden in the 1970s for Iowa University:

It does look a lot like parts of Chalet.

Can't find anywhere it's available but It'd be interesting to know if anyone knows any more about Mcfadden.
