Graphic Size for New UI

What is the ideal graphic size for a custom logo at the top of the new UI global nav bar?  Everything I insert / upload seems to get enlarged and does not match the size of the other graphics in the Nav bar.  Any one work through this?

 @joseph_allen , since not everyone is using the new UI, I'm going to share this with the User Group: New UI​ in the Community. If you haven't checked it out you might want to take a look!

I'm not using it until June either, but we're getting ready as everyone should be.  Smiley Happy

True, but my guess is that Institutions who are already using the new UI in production have probably already worked through this issue (or at least are having the same problem and can empathize with you!). Smiley Wink

 @joseph_allen ​, I believe the default size of the logo container is 96x75px.  I use an image that is 58x55px and I use some CSS to change the size of the logo container to 55px high so my image doesn't look stretched.

Here's a screenshot of what ours looks like:

The old UI was very flexible and let you use different size logos, which led us to a collection of large, rectangular logos (roughly 70x200px).

These won't scale down to the new <100x<100px square.

Some of our clients have alternative, square logos that will fit into the new ui, but some only have wordmarks that will become illegible.

Has anyone played around with using larger logos, or solved this problem in alternate ways?
