A Card is a unit of content featuring an image along with a title and description, wrapped in a block-level link.

Cards come in a variety of sizes, activated by adding a modifier class:

  • Extra-small : mzp-c-card-extra-small
  • Small : The default, no modifier class
  • Medium : mzp-c-card-medium
  • Large : mzp-c-card-large

Cards support images in three different aspect ratios, also indicated by a class:

  • 1:1 : mzp-has-aspect-1-1
  • 3:2 : mzp-has-aspect-3-2
  • 16:9 : mzp-has-aspect-16-9

Because cards are responsive and may change size in different viewports, you should take some care in sizing images appropriately:

  • Extra-small : 450px wide (low-res), 900px wide (high-res)
  • Small : 450px wide (low-res), 900px wide (high-res)
  • Medium : 600px wide (low-res), 1200px wide (high-res)
  • Large : 930px wide (low-res), 1860px wide (high-res)

In addition to the image, title, and description, cards may hold a few other distinct pieces of content:

  • A tag, sometimes with an icon, above the title.
  • A Call To Action
  • A small meta label

A card must contain at minimum an image and either a title or a description (or both). All other content is optional. Try to keep card titles to one or two lines (about 50 characters max) and descriptions to two or three lines (about 150 characters max). Tags should be short, just one or two words. Calls to Action and meta labels should fit on one line, about 30-40 characters max.

The optional tag can also include an icon, indicated by a modifier class on the card container:

  • mzp-has-video
  • mzp-has-audio

The default Card size with no other modifier classes is small:

  • Small sized cards can contain images with 16:9, 3:2 or 1:1 aspect ratios.
  • The card in this example displays an icon next to the card tag name, to indicate the media type that may be played on click.
  • Recommended image width is 450px width (low-res), 900px (high-res).
    • high-res examples: 16:9 = 900 x 506, 3:2 = 900 x 600, 1:1 = 900 x 900
  • Headlines should be a maximum of 50 characters, and descriptions a maximum of 150 characters.
