Spacers

To ensure consistent spacing we provide spacer blocks as part of the UI Kit, for smaller and larger displays, that can be used by designers to correctly space components and elements.

Larger spacers

Larger spacers are usually saved for padding or margins inside or between larger components which can normally make up most or the entirety of a page layout such as hero banners or content components.

80px

Normally for the vertical padding of components used on larger displays such as the Content Component

40px

Normally for the vertical padding of components for use on smaller displays such as the Content Component or for components that don't require as much impact or white space as their larger variants.

32px

Used for the spacing between headings, typography and buttons on larger displays, based off of the 8px baseline grid. This spacer is also commonly used for padding between components such as Cards on larger displays.

Smaller spacers

24px

An option for less space between headings, typography and buttons when space is at a premium such as within Cards.

16px

Normally used for spacing between headings, typography and buttons on smaller displays, based off of the 8px baseline grid. This spacer is also commonly used for padding between components such as Cards on smaller displays or Cards at their smallest on larger displays (Cards in a 6 Col layout). It is also the gutter width for smaller displays.

8px

Normally used for small spacing between or the padding within certain elements such as tags, social channel icon lists or a button and secondary hyperlink.

Padding

Spacing is built into most Design Language components but extra utility classes are provided for flexibility. The grey border and background are to illustrate the difference between margins and padding spacers.
