Required clear space for the LinkedIn logo
Logo and Background Color: The LinkedIn logo should always be used in color for online use. The LinkedIn logo should also be used in color for print applications unless the color version is not practical, in which case the logo can be reproduced in solid black. The preferred background color for the logo is solid white. When a solid white color is not practical, it may be used on a solid, light background color. The high resolution logo must be used for all print applications. High resolution logos can be downloaded here.
