Clear Space

One way to ensure that the RVU logo remains unobstructed is to maintain a border of clear space surrounding the logo. Maintaining a clear space border around the logo will ensure that it is not cut off in printing or overlapping/competing with any other graphics, imagery, or text.

Preferred Clear Space

Measure 1/2 of the rod of Asclepius’ width and length one you have set your logo at the size you will be using on your material.Use this measurement on all sides of the logo to create the preferred clear space border.


Minimum Clear Space

We recognize that it might not always be possible to maintain the preferred clear space border. If necessary the absolute minimum clear space you can use is 1/4 of the rod’s length and 1/2 of the width.
