The client literally just wants to design clefs that are different enough to be distinct.
Ouch! But the client doesn't know that designing brand new clefs requires designing brand new all other symbols, a complete font. :geek:
I'm advising against that. If they wish to use distinct treble and bass clefs, I'll recommend using Bravura or Sebastian, and having them design clefs that fit with those existing fonts. After all, it's not that there's only one "right answer" for a Bravura font clef.

I just had some work done where I got new clefs and noteheads, with everything from bravura. What do you think?
