I have a question. I download FontAwesome (SIL OFL licence 1.1). I took icon- bulb and expand it to curves in vector software. I edit that icon that the icon never look like original anymore. And I add part of another icon to that bulb. Can I use it for comemrcial logo for my client? I just used that original icon and change it a lot, just because I need taht shape of bulb.

  • Have you read the basics? Have you read the license itself? This seems obviously outside the terms.

This is a related but distinct question. Under SIL's license, you cannot use their font names in a derived product (make up your own name), and you cannot sell their fonts alone (you can sell a product that includes the font); any derivative has to be made available under the same license.
