How to adjust white space around header/logo

If you'd like to increase or decrease the white space above and below your header/logo image, we'll teach you how in this tutorial!

Before we begin, let's talk about marginsMargins in CSS create additional space around a particular element. You can have either positive margins (more space) or negative margins (less space). A positive margin would look like 20px and a negative margin would look like -20px. You can adjust the margin values to anything you need. The values do not need to be equal (i.e. you could have a margin-top of 30px and a margin-bottom of 60px, if you wanted!).
