Is this the wildest typeface ever?

(Image credit: Pentagram)

Pentagram has designed a new type tool, which allows you to create typography inspired by mushrooms. Yes, you did read that right. Hypha is a digital tool, which grows letters by "stimulating the mycelium growth found in fungi". We're constantly saying how your use of typography belies your personality, and this one will have you down as a real fun-guy. (Sorry.)

In all seriousness, though the concept sounds exceedingly strange, the result is utterly beautiful. Based on the growth patterns of fungi, when you enter the characters they grow into unique shapes. This is certainly wilder than anything found in our list of free fonts.
