This article gives you an overview of my thought process and reason for how it's constructed and what I want to improve!

I feel like I am quite critical of myself, is only in an attempt to improve myself why I generally don't like a lot of my work and attempt to constantly imporve it. This article gives you an overview of my thought process and reason for how it's constructed the logo image and what I want to improve!
For this site I wanted to have a character on each page to maintain consistency. So I have chosen a bear! This will be used to represent each article. A little like the google logo!
The logo image format is another note worthy area on this page. I have initially adopted used PNG files. However throughout the site you'll see a mixture of different formats including my preferred method of using SVG's.

PNG are not scalable
I have completed the same process and image wdiths on a PNG. The image becomes grainy when increasing or reducing the image:
So why not just use SVG's? Here is a comparison of each:
