As for your clef: really interesting. It reminds me (and this is meant in a good way) of a style of animated cartoons in the late 50s/early 60s.

Re: New treble clef

New treble clef

Here's my first attempt at a treble clef (SVG here ). https://i.imgur.com/utyzdzW.gif Feedback welcome. Be nice; this is hard. Yes, I know it looks nothing like a conventional clef... My goal is ultimately to harmonize it with Trinite . For starters I'm just trying to make it look respectable. Thanks!

Re: Drawing treble clefs

Thanks everyone for the links and advice. I’ll certainly avail myself of all of it. Yes, I suppose I’m designing a font, but I don’t have any grand plans. I just know enough to know that you can’t claim to be working on a music font until you have a decent treble clef! So here we are. I’m not sure I...

Ugh. Any tips? Suggestions?

The time signatures do look a little large to me, however, and the 64th note runs into the line above at 12 pt in InDesign.
Thanks, I will keep that in mind and perhaps scale the time signatures down a bit, and see if I can shorten the stem of the 64th note.
