This monotype typeface created by Synoptic Office, where the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used, is definitely a looker!

Nice typeface by Travis Kochel.

"It does feel rather magical: you type numbers, it  creates graphics. The formatting for all three fonts is to type the  numbers as a sum, with the numbers separated by plus symbols: 20+40+10+30 for example. The fonts have a set of basic numbers and letters  (resembling a compressed Trade Gothic) you can use with ligatures turned  off to type in and check your numbers. Turning the ligatures on  transforms your numbers into charts”
