ORCID iD icons in vector format
On , 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.
Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry. We now have updated the ORCID trademark and iD display guidelines to include the ORCID iD in the following format:
- gif (multiple sizes)
- png (multiple sizes)
- vector (svg)
We also have included a reference to the ORCID iD being available in the Academicons font.
If you would like the ORCID iD icon in another format, or would like to share the iD icon with the community in another format on the icon resources page, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org — and thanks!

@ Stephen Eglen: I really like that idea - could you publish your Latex macro? Or maybe could Orcid publish something like that?
If you would like a copy of the ORCID iD icon in vector format, then please contact email@example.com as suggested above.

I'd like to see some vector format too -- png and gif just don't scale very nicely. I've just written a latex macro to add the ORCID logo next to an author's name -- clicking on the logo takes you to the ORCID record. See the pdf at: http://biorxiv.org/content/biorxiv/early/2017/02/28/045104.full.pdf
Please contact support for the image you need. ORCID as an organization likes to know how our logo is being used which is why we ask you to contact us to get the vector images.

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.
