Theme in use: Divi, by Elegant Themes

I've been staring at this for a while and trying different solutions in the style.css file, but I can't seem to get it.

I need to reduce the vertical space above "ISIS Group Exhibition" -- on this page and other pages like it.

I have tried adding margin-top: -1.0em to different selectors, but the tall, vertical space remains. I feel like I am missing something very simple.

Thank you for your advice!

You've several areas that have a top padding all affecting the position.

style.css line 672
.et_pb_post .entry-content, .project .entry-content {
    padding-top: 30px;
}


line 1200
.et_pb_section {
    padding: 50px 0;
    position: relative;
}


line 1214
.et_pb_row {
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 30px 0 0;
    position: relative;
    width: 1080px;
}

That's it!

Did you use Firebug to determine which selectors to adjust?

Gary, thanks very much for your help.
