I suggest that...

ORCID icons format

On [1], the ORCID icons are given in PNG and GIF formats. This does not allow for seamless scaling of the icons when needed in different sizes.
Please provide an ORCID icon in a scalable vector format, e.g., SVG.

    Hi,

    To get a copy of the ORCID logo in a vector format please request one at support@orcid.org and include some information about how you’ll be using it. We’re happy to provide a vector logo for most uses, but we like to know where nonstandard sizes of our logo are going to go, which is why we only publish the logo in png and gif formats.

    Best,

        Hi Catalina,

        what exactly do you mean by nonstandard sizes? SVGs are scalable without loss of quality, that's true. But you can also scale GIFs and PNGs which usually results in poor quality.

        SVGs looks much better than GIFs or PNGs on high resolution displays and they're supported by all browsers. Furthermore, the file size will probably also be much smaller. So can you please reconsider to provide SVGs on your website? If that's not an option (for whatever reasons), I'll contact the support as you suggested.

        Cheers,
        André
