I am trying to find out the name of a font (and who distributes it). It is used in the currrent issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine (on the cover) and in this years Coca-Cola annual report designed by EAI/Atlanta. It is a sans serif that has a somewhat industrial look to it - the curves of the c,g,d, and o (among others) have straightened, vertical sides which is particularly noticeable in the upper case. The x-height is fairly high - it is highly legible. The lower case l has a curved tail on the bottom. The top of the bowl/counter of the lowercase a is flat.The g is the single loop kind, not the double loop kind. These are its most distinguishing characteristics. Does anyone know what it is called and what foundry distributes it?

In the 1999 Annual Report from Coca-Cola (which is the latest released - and can be can be seen at http://www.cocacola.com/annualreport/1999/ ) two Sans Serif families are used. Captions are primarily in the FontFont DIN family from FontShop, and body type is in Neue Helvetica from Adobe. For the curious, the serif face used is Emigre's Filosofia.
