The letters are painted on what are literally ten ton weights.

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) 11th june 2022

an interesting interpretation of "heavy"

Comment by frongile 11th june 2022

I have an idea: Why not make the marked weights equal to the decimal Unicode code point? e.g. the capital A is 65 tons, the lowercase a is 97 tons, etc.

funny enough, this was the first thing that came to my mind after reading the blog post on Heavycomp

Comment by mgUdit 13th june 2022

@japanyoshi If I put the codepoint in decimal as the weight in tons, then the weights would be too heavy to even hold by the strongest rope.

@everyone Thanks. The font was named TenTon because of how heavy the weights were. The letters themselves are painted onto the weights. 19.9klb is roughly 10 tons of weight. I thought "what could be the heaviest thing I could think of", I went with the ten ton weights.

Here's a suggestion: to distinct uppercase from lowercase, but lowercase on 5 ton weights.

Comment by JaceFonts 23rd june 2022

@JaceFonts I got the name from ten ton weights, if I made loweracse using five ton weights, then the font wouldn't be called "TenTon", but I can create actual lowercase letters, like so:

Lowercase added. (Corrected capitalization in sample)

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) 24th june 2022

The only thing I don't like is that lowercase 'g' is way too wide.

Something like this maybe?

Comment by AFontAbove 25th june 2022

@AFontAbove I made the lowercase g on there narrower, but your suggestion was too narrow for my liking. I put the original in the PUA.

Taking the theme too literally. I like it.
