does anyone know the name of this font?


Sorry, don't know this one. Feels freebie/amateurish/hand-drawn to me but I could be totally wrong. The closest I have is Kathleen Sans. BTW, that's not their actual logo which looks close to Neutraface.
Some more: Damian, Novocento, Champagne & Limousines

EDIT: after further research though "basic sans" section at DaFont, it appears to be Opificio

You are great! thanks

Champagne & Limousines might be a "remix" of Avant Garde, a commercial font. Looking at some of Thompson's other font offerings, that perception is reinforced. So I would be cautious about recommending/using it.
