To ensure our logo is the most highly visible whenever used, it’s important to have plenty of clearspace surrounding the logo. This specifically refers to graphics, type and other elements that could clutter and distract from the identity.
It must be surrounded on all sides by an adequate clearspace—a space equal in size to the width of the number “2” in the logo, as shown below denoted by the X. This proportion scales according to the logo size itself, allowing for proper clearspace at any size.
Care must be taken in reproduction of the WSO2 logo. At small sizes the artwork loses integrity, therefore reflecting badly on the brand.
The minimum length should be no less than 50px (0.7 inch) , and usage below 50px is not allowed. But the ideal minimum length is 75px (1.0 inch).
