Sans serif in Seattle Met (Similar to Graphik)

Hey,

Who knows this sans serif from Seatlle Met?

I thought it was Graphik for a little while, but the a's are quite different.

It's also very close to Calibre, but with a different 'K' and 'M'.

Could it be Colfax (née Chrono)?

Hey Peter,

Looks like you got your answer. I switched our primary sans from Gotham Narrow to Chrono for the April issue. And we haven't looked back. It's worked well for a range of uses, from small copy to huge headlines. Personally, I'm a big fan of Process Type Foundry and we use their Anchor and Capucine as well. If you're considering the typeface, you can see interior samples on our Flickr page.
