I used "Helvetica Neue Condensed Bold" in a logo project. Now I need to deliver the original files including the font to my client. The font was free but not licensed. If necessary I will buy it before sending files but I'm confused: which license should I use for the logo? Is the desktop version (5 computer usable) safe for the client's usage?
If your client wants to use the font beyond the logo, he will need a licence, for sure. If he will use it on one computer, he should buy a one computer licence, if he will use it on 5, a 5 seat licence.
I am going to assume you want to know how to send the image as it is.
If you select the text, then right-click on it and select "create outlines", illustrator will automatically transform the text of the font into shapes as if they were done by the pen tool.
I hope this answers what you asked.
