Anatomy

Default card

  1. Image (situational): Gives context to the user as to what the card is about.
  2. Title: Serves to let the user know exactly what the card is about, ideal to keep this short and to the point.
  3. Description: Serves to give users information on the card.
  4. CTA (situational): When you need users to take a action, this can be omitted if the card is meant to display only information. Text link can be replaced by a button if needed if the situation calls for it.

Action card

  1. Icon: Gives more context to what the card is about.
  2. Selector: Allows users to select one or more cards.

Action card with quantity toggle

Used mainly for situations with subscriptions or when you require users to select a amount for a given item. This allows users to select a item and decide on the quantity they want.

  1. Quantity toggle: Allows users to select the amount they require.
  2. Price (situational): Displays the amount of a single item. Can be used to show total based on amount selected. Pricing can be omitted if you do not require it.

Spacing

Ensure that there is a min 24px spacing inside of the card and 16px vertical spacing between content.

Action card with quantity toggle

Usage guidelines

Cards should be used:

  1. When you need to display similar content and actions on a topic inside a container.
  2. When you need to visually separate specific parts of content in a view.

Cards should not be used:

  1. When you need to inform user about important changes. Use Alerts component instead.
  2. If the information contained within the card is not related.

Usability guidelines

Keep card title brief and clear
Be brief and keep it to a single line by utilizing a sentence fragment. Avoid using punctuation as much as possible.

Use consistent elements when cards are arranged in a group
For groups of cards, ensure the components used are consistent from card to card. Eg. Use the same height and width for each card on the page.

Card content should be summarised and easy to digest
Don't overwhelm the space with excessive content. The content should be easily accessed and explored so that it is easier for users to find what they are interested in.
