Minimum white space
Derived from the capital ‘U’
The minimum amount of empty space around the logo is known as the white space. This space does not have to be literally white and may also be transparent.
A design element from the logo is often used to determine the minimum amount of white space. In the TU Delft corporate identity, the minimum white space is derived from the height and width of the capital ‘U’ in the letter logo. In the example, the minimum space around the logo is shown by a light blue box.
