Margins | Padding

Utility classes to put specific spacing values onto elements
As a rule of thumb try not to apply margin top to avoid css margin collapse, use padding top instead

u-padding | u-margin

/* Size class construction */
-tiny | -small | -large | -huge | -none

/* Directional class construction */
-top | -right | -bottom | -left | -horizontal | -vertical

Application example:
u-padding (normal padding top-right-bottom-left)
u-padding-tiny (tiny padding top-right-bottom-left)
u-padding-left (normal padding left)
u-padding-left-none (reset padding left)
u-padding-horizontal (normal padding left-right)
u-padding-vertical-small (small padding top-bottom)
... and so on

u-margin (normal margin top-right-bottom-left)
u-margin-tiny (tiny margin top-right-bottom-left)
u-margin-left (normal margin left)
u-margin-left-none (reset margin left)
u-margin-horizontal (normal margin left-right)
u-margin-vertical-small (small margin top-bottom)
... and so on
