Why is my logo looking weird in PDF when it looks fine InDesign?

I have a brochure created in InDesign, the logo I am using on it is an AI vector. It looks normal in InDesign, but when I export to PDF it looks distorted. At 400% in PDF, it looks normal but when I zoom out to 100% it looks weird. Will this print normal? What is going on?

It is a common Acrobat Reader preview bug where vertical letters (like l, I and i) will be displayed like this when converted to shapes (as in a logo). You notice the l’s and i’s on the right are fine, because that text is probably not outlined. However this is just a display glitch, if you print the artwork it will be fine. The issue is well known:

You need to edit your outlined vector logo and add some in-between points in any vertical shaped letter (l, I and i). Save your logo and relink in InDesign, export the PDF and there you go. 🙂
