First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.

A rather monolinear, extended grotesque

I mean the one on the top, not the logo 'Loewe'. Which typeface is that?

(I need a low x-height, sans typeface like the one on the pic. Whereas now extended fonts are used quite a lot, many of them look very contemporary and futuristic, and other very grotesque, i need something in-between.)

Thanks a lot in advance!

Can you explain what you mean by “low x-height”? That term refers to the proportions of the lowercase, but none are shown here. Do you mean “extended”?
Ah, I think I understand what you mean now. You want a low-x-height font with caps similar to the “SOLO” sample. Correct?
Yes that's correct! thank you

Solo might be Cassandra, but it doesn't have a traditional lowercase.

Adrianna Extended by Chank Fonts might work for you....

Just thought of another option—Luxury Gold, by House Industries.

My guess is that SOLO is a modified typeface or custom lettering. As for your similar “neutral” typefaces with a low x-height, how about Gomme Sans? Too contemporary? Trade Gothic Extended might work but the lowercase is not so small.

I think Trade Gothic Extended might work, looks like the one with the balance I was looking for and it's pretty similar to the one in my example. Thanks a lot!
