Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.
Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...
Can anyone tell me if this font is designed for Nike specifically, or, is it available for purchase through another designer?
On their apparel design page it is listed as the font 'speed'.
I've been searching for it but haven't found any answers yet.
Thank you for your help

ATypI did come to Helsinki, so I had to put my money where my mouth was, and since I was one of the organizers, I could. This is the result:
