Follow the brand guidelines. They are there for a reason. I know it sucks but that's how it is. If you spent hours of your life creating detailed brand guidelines just for people to ignore it, you wouldn't be happy (I'm not anyway). If there aren't any brand guidelines (you should actually request these, not just search the company's website) then by all ...

Good logos can cost anywhere from $5 to $500,000 and probably more. The price does not necessarily equate to the quality of the finished logo (look at the 2012 London Olympics logo!).

Create a duplicate of the shape you want to add the shadow to, and use it as a clipping mask for your "shadow"(cmd/ctrl+7). Then drag that over the main shape (or you could ...

Ask your profesional designer. But yes, the EPS is probably the one. Others are PDF, AI, CDR. Enlargin a logo "without distortion" could have a wide range of flavors. Normally the user is the one that distorts a logo. (The question was edited adding the word pixelation, which makes it more especific) Some explanations. The formats I mentioned are ...

It really depends on what you want out of a logo. If you just want a nice graphic then many sources might be good. However there is more to consider when buying a logo. In the end, a good Logo designer often needs to interview you and access your workers. Likewise, you as a company often need the logo designer to explain logo rationale and usage scenarios. ...

What you need to know is Brand Architecture. There are potentially 3 types of brand architectures which is nothing but a framework into which its brands fall. Your question has more than one brand architecture. Virgin brand follows "Corporate or Monolithic" Brand Identity where its sub brands share the same first name.
