Card Types

Cards Overview

Content Designers are strongly encouraged to include visuals on the card front whenever possible.

Fronts: Each card should have a title describing the content on the back of the card. It is strongly suggested that you not exceed 140 characters (including spaces) for the card title.

Backs: Allow the designer to add text describing the item identified on the Card front. While the text copy on the back of the card is scrollable, it is not recommended to exceed 4,000 characters including spaces. For best practice, we recommended to keep copy under 2,000 characters including spaces.
