Logos and Branding
A Note on Logos
A logo is a visual representation of an entire brand or entity. It is important that logos retain their original shape and proportions as to not distort the image, making the brand appear less professional.

Image and Video Resolution
Pixels are simply the building blocks of a digital image. The number of pixels in an image will determine how the image looks either on a screen or in a printed format. Image Resolution is determined by the density of these pixels and is measure in PPI (pixels per inch).
Pixelation occurs when an image has been enlarged to a point that individual pixels are visible.
As a best practice, it is important to use high-quality media and avoid enlarging images. It is always better to upload a large image and have to crop or scale down.
