Notes on Using Vector Graphics

The magic of vector graphics is that they are stored in a format that scalable. This means that:

  • They won’t pixelate or look lower quality when you resize them (the same can’t be said about .jpegs, .gifs and so on).
  • They are great for viewing on mobile (they can freely scale to the device size).

Best Practice for Vector Graphics in Emails

  • Make sure to check the attribution rules on each of these before use so you can credit the author correctly when using them.
  • Less is more for graphics, especially those sent from your Outlook, Gmail or other email provider. Don’t make your email visually overpowering, and cause people to miss the message!
