Deck Aesthetics & Admin Features

Deck Overview

Decks are the container or repository for a specified number of Cards. A Deck typically addresses one topic or module of learning.

A FLIP deck is uniquely designed with micro-learning in mind. A best practice for deck development is to keep card count at an average of 15 cards for a single topic or learning module. 

Deck Cover and Inside a Deck


Deck Aesthetics

Decks are elegantly limited in their design features.
  1. Title - The title is carried over into the top, once inside a Deck. Try and keep it to 40 characters.
  2. Icon - This is displayed just before the tile when inside a Deck.
  3. Color - You can choose from your uploaded brand colors or input a custom HEX value. The color becomes the backdrop within a Deck.
  4. Full-Bleed Imagery - This simply acts as an overlay to the prior options. You must still choose the prior options.
