answered Spurless lowercase "a" font

Seeing how uncomfortably the |a| sits on the baseline, I really doubt it’s a proper typeface. I think it’s most likely a case of “cutting edge logo”.

My guess is: they started with Myriad and then changed the a and the width.

Actually, no to the upside-down /e although that is a good way to fake it. The original clearly shows a straight line in the counter; the /a was modified. Otherwise it really is Myriad.
