Fungis is a somewhat ‘brother’ of Fungia. These two typefaces were conceived simultaneously as an experiment on designing typeface based on natural shapes. In both cases it was mushrooms. Of course the main theme of these typefaces is not mushrooms itself (it was just a start point) but the interaction between form and counterform. In each typeface the principle appears very differrently—in Fungia form is more ‘active’ than counterform, in Fungis it's the opposite. Furthermore in each typeface form behaves in the opposite way. Simply put: where in Fungia was bold extensive form—in Fungis on the contrary—thin and slim.
In spite of unquestioning individuality the font has some associations with wood typefaces from wild west, typefaces from circus posters of 19th century and even slight feeling of gothic. The font can be useful in different cases: posters, titles, book covers, billboards, street signs, magazine spreads and all situations that demand expressive typography.
