Why JPEG isn´t the right Format for your Web Logo

“Can I use a JPEG image for my weblogo” customers often ask me. “Well, you can but you shouldn´t” is my answer in most of the cases. Of course you can use a JPEG as a logo but it´s not the best choice in most of the cases. Here is why.

There is one big problem with JPEG images. They always have a (white) background. This might not be an issue if you have a white background on your website as well but what if you have a colored header? It looks awefull and unprofessional.

There are some other issues with JPEGs when it comes to scalability and quality. That´s why designers ask for EPS which is a vector based format also used for printing. Well, can I use that for the web you might ask. No but any designer can make a PNG file out of an EPS file in seconds. And PNG is a great image format for weblogos.

Movember is at the Gate – Our Team takes part again

Movember – the month formerly known as November – is all about bringing back the moustache, having fun, making a difference and create awareness for a serious topic.  Across the globe, Mo Bros commit to growing a moustache for the 30 days of Movember and become walking, talking billboards for the cause. The moustache is our ribbon, the symbol by which we generate conversations, awareness and raise funds for men’s health.

There are many ways to get involved, from growing a moustache to making a donation. Whilst we leave cultivating moustaches to the guys, Mo Sistas play a vital role in the success of Movember by raising funds and awareness, and by supporting the Mo Bros in their lives.

So take action and either register and become a Mo Bro or Mo Sista or open your wallet and donate some money to support this worldwide charity project.
