Design Trend Spotlight: Card-Based Web Design

Posted on Feb 12, 2015


What are cards?

Card-based web design is a design pattern which places information in smaller chunks presented in a rectangular or (you guessed it) card-like shape. They typically include a picture, a caption, and interactive icons or sharing buttons. The result of card-based design is a site with nuggets of self-contained content that can be easily shared and interacted with, even on mobile devices.
