Use fonts for logos for sale as SVG File

Hello, Is it allowed to use the fonts in a design that is sold afterwards as an SVG file? I would like to create a logo and use a font for it. The customer would like the logo as an SVG file. Do I have to specify something? Or can I use the fonts freely? Many thanks for your help

Hello - there’s nothing you need to do. See the very first questions and answers in the OFL-FAQ:

Question: 1.1 Can I use the fonts for a book or other print publication, to create logos or other graphics or even to manufacture objects based on their outlines?

Answer: Yes. You are very welcome to do so. Authors of fonts released under the OFL allow you to use their font software as such for any kind of design work. No additional license or permission is required, unlike with some other licenses. Some examples of these uses are: logos, posters, business cards, stationery, video titling, signage, t-shirts, personalised fabric, 3D-printed/laser-cut shapes, sculptures, rubber stamps, cookie cutters and lead type.

Question: 1.1.1 Does that restrict the license or distribution of that artwork?

Answer: No. You remain the author and copyright holder of that newly derived graphic or object. You are simply using an open font in the design process. It is only when you redistribute, bundle or modify the font itself that other conditions of the license have to be respected (see below for more details).

Question: 1.1.2 Is any kind of acknowledgement required?

Answer: No. Font authors may appreciate being mentioned in your artwork’s acknowledgements alongside the name of the font, possibly with a link to their website, but that is not required.

many thanks for your help. I’m just a little unsure about the file format. The customer can edit the logo afterwards with the SVG file. With the help of a graphics program he can change the shape of the letters, change the color, etc. It is therefore not a fixed file such as png. Is there any Problems?

That’s not a problem.
