What is a card?

Cards contain content and actions that relate information about a subject.

  • A card is identifiable as a single, contained unit.
  • A card can hold anything from images to headlines, supporting text, buttons, lists, and other components.
  • A card's layout and dimensions depend on its contents. There is no one right way to make a card.

Types of cards




  • Three official card types - elevated, filled and outlined
  • By default, cards have no shadow and low elevation
  • If a card is interactable, it should be elevated


Cards should demonstrate clear visual hierarchy, making it easy to scan for relevant information. They can serve as a starting point for more information on a topic or a summarization of information.

  • Large bodies of text should not be forced into a card
  • Text should be grouped closely to show relation
  • Clickable cards should not contain any buttons


Card layouts can vary depending on use. The following are examples of common card layouts.

  • Photos stretch to the border of the card
  • Photo corner radius changes to 22px and 0px
  • The URL should be in the photo
