Hey Doug Devitre πŸ‘‹

offset-position is not meant for general-purpose positioning like setting top and left offsets. Instead it is used for specifying the position of an element along a motion path.

To set a top offset of -45px and a left offset of 20px, you need to use the top and left properties separately, like this:

.logo {
  position: absolute;
  top: -45px;
  left: 20px;

Hope this helps! πŸ˜„
