Would anyone be able to identify the package or tool used to created this particular bar plot? It has a distinctive font.

It's really difficult to know with what tool they do that. but I will give my chances to R or Excel. That overlapping is automatic perform with excel just selecting the data this is the instruction-: Go to the insert section: char category and choose the 2-D Column, Style 7, Layout 16.

enter image description here

also you can perform a "similar" plot with ggplot and the theme pubclean. ( maybe you need to check the themes of ggpubr )

# Create the bar plot. Use theme_pubclean() [in ggpubr]
ggplot(df, aes(x = cut, y = counts)) +
  geom_bar(fill = "#0073C2FF", stat = "identity") +
  geom_text(aes(label = counts), vjust = -0.3) + 
  theme_pubclean()

enter image description here

Just for check again and give to you reasons about this graph. That webpage continue with another bar chart with the dates stacked in vertical position.

enter image description here

Using Excel with some old visualization( check the dates ):

enter image description here

Note: If my data is small the dates will look like the above chart.
