Cards exist to group repeatable content and display it in a modular, easy-to-read way.
While all cards are displayed in a familiar format, the content within them changes the purpose of each.
Basic: The majority of our cards are basic. It can collect and display a variety of content and most likely won’t include any visuals.
Every card consists of a body, but can also include a header, footer and sometimes media content.
The only thing that matters is that you outwork every single person.
Body: Use for just about any and all content imaginable.
Content shows up in different ways when grouped into cards. Some require headers, some will only need footers and some might need both. When collectively displayed, they each should remain consistent and use the right card type.

In some cases cards may be selectable. If it makes sense to include selection, use our select mark in the upper left corner.
Titles should be concise and briefly explain the content. Write them in title case, but don’t worry about punctuation for these.
Cards are nearly synonymous with time as they’re most often displayed in feeds. Follow our date and time guidelines.
