Anyone know what this typeface is? Im looking for an elegant sans seri with a high stroke contrast like this one. Any suggestions?
We have had similar samples before - this seems to be a popular topic. Someone may have a list of 'elegant contrasty sans' faces. I cannot recall the specific font names, but a Google search might locate the threads.
I also recall once suggesting that some samples might have been high contrast serif faces with the serifs removed.

A few to start maybe:
I’ve gone through the previous posts and compiled a list of thin stressed sans typefaces. Additions welcome.

Fantastic job, Florian! :-)
Two possible additions:
a little less contrast
a little quirkier
Good ones, thanks!
Finura by Santos is related, in a very nice way.
But is it a sans? ;-)
No, but it does have a similar feel to it.
