It's not Futura or Century Gothic... anyone?

Well I think it is a cut of Kabel but the 'M' and 'i' are not right so it could be monotype sans serif

More of a rip-off: “An early ITC borrowing from Kabel, faithful to the original proportions of Kabel Heavy, from the hands of Ronne Bonder and Tom Carnase.”

For an even better match (weight, |e|, etc.), look at the pre-digital sample on Bowfin Printworks’ font identification guide (scroll down).
