Royal Canin Design Language

Cards

Cards are one of the most commonly used components within Design Language and are frequently used to showcase or to sign post to content such as news articles, products, pets and breeds throughout any Royal Canin project. There are two types of cards that have been established with specific uses for both revolving around alignment and image ratios. These can be used with various different combinations of heading, meta, body copy and button combinations to create cards specific to any project. Utility classes available:

  • rc-match-heights

The following structure and hierarchy that makes up the content of any type of card can be outlined with the following:

  • Image
  • Meta 1 (taxonomy, categories)
  • Headline
  • Rating (specifically for products)
  • Price (specifically for products)
  • Meta 2 (post dates, miscellaneous/ can only appear if Body copy does not)
  • Body copy (100 character maximum/ can only appear if Meta 2 does not)
  • Button
  • Hyperlink
  • Icon Button
  • Custom actions (specifically for projects that require additional features on cards)
  • Footer Button

This hierarchy must be followed at all times for Cards and means that familiarity for users can be retained across any Royal Canin project. Though structurally always the same, elements such as Icon Buttons can be positioned to sit nearer up a card such as in the Card Type A example where the icon button appears over the top of an image and would almost appear to be first in the anatomy though it is technically not.

Cards can sit within multiple column variations and have specific rules around their padding and heading sizes based on how much space is available due to the amount of cards showcased per row.

Card Type A

Card Type A is used for any type of content that is not product, breed or pet specific. This includes examples such as News posts, expert advice posts, event listings, content pages etc.

Card A images must be supplied as 16:9 aspect ratio.

This type of card allows content to be featured that may also include taxonomy or date information for said content.

Allowed content elements that can make up this Card:

  • Image 16:9
  • Meta 1
  • Headline
  • Meta 2
  • Body copy
  • Icon Button
  • Footer Button

Card Layout - News/Article cards

For the recommended layout for news, article and product cards, you can add the rc-news-article-card class to the rc-layout-container container. This will ensure the correct columns per screen size are used. There is also a rc-news-article-card--sidebar-present that can be used when a sidebar is present to reduce the columns used appropriately.

Link cards

A card can be made linkable by wrapping the article in <a class="rc-card__link" href="#">. Also make sure to remove the onClick event on the action button and replace with your own if needed. Utility class .rc-match-heights works here as well.

Card Type B

Card Type B is used for content that needs more prominence than content featured in Card Type A such as products, pets and breeds. It allows for additional content elements featured within the Card structure for more flexibility.
Content within Card Type B is also centre aligned and this is based on the image ratio that must be used within this Card being 4:3 (rather than 16:9) with centralised imagery based purely on showcasing product or pet shots on isolated white backgrounds.
This type of card allows products to be featured that may also include ratings for said product as well as pricing information.
Allowed content elements that can make up this Card:

  • Image 4:3
  • Meta 1
  • Headline
  • Rating
  • Price
  • Body copy
  • Button
  • Hyperlink
  • Icon Button
  • Custom actions
  • Footer Button

Card Layout - Content cards

For the recommended layout for news, article and product cards, you can add the rc-content-card class to the rc-layout-container container. This will ensure the correct columns per screen size are used. There is also a rc-content-card--sidebar-present that can be used when a sidebar is present to reduce the columns used appropriately.

<div class="rc-layout-container rc-content-card">
  <div class="rc-column">
    <article class="rc-card rc-card--b">
      <button class="rc-btn rc-card__action rc-btn rc-btn--action rc-btn--action--inverse rc-icon rc-like--xs rc-iconography" aria-label="Like">

Card Type A & B - custom grids

Cards in this structure will follow the default behaviour but when extra cards are added that exceed the number specified in the class name (e.g. 5 cards in a 4 card container) the extra items will drop to their own rows. Each row will be the same height as the tallest card within that row.

Cards - different title sizes

Although there are two very clear use cases for cards (products/articles), there might be more usage examples. That's why you can use a default title size styling by applying .rc-card__title class or you can add generic heading class (like .rc-alpha, .rc-beta etc. - see Typography) to modify size/line-height. We recommend using default style, but in some cases, modyfing is allowed.
