Thanks,

It could simply be a bitmap font with some post-processing. The rounded corners at the junctions can be created by rasterizing the type, applying a carefully calibrated Gaussian blur, then adjusting the levels to eliminate the intermediate tones. Or, it may be a font that emulates this effect.

Looks like 'Stedelijk' by Wim Crouwel. The Foundry has a digital version in Architype 3. http://www.foundrytypes.co.uk

Many thanks for your comments. Apparently the typeface is called Vormgevers

I'm sorry. I really think it's called 'Stedelijk'. It says so in this book http://www.amazon.com/Wim-Crouwel-Alphabets-Kees-Broos/dp/9063690371. Vormgevers (designers) was the title of the exhibition that the poster of your link was made for.

The Typeface is actually the typeface adapted by Spin on Rebrand from its previous typeface. Its called WhiteChapel-Bold
