Image (Banner) example

Guidelines for use

  1. This paragraph is always used at 100% width of the browser window

  1. Consider where the focal point of your background image is, and align the content in the section with your best attempt to not overlap it. 
  2. If your image has a lot of bright and dark areas, you may have legibility issues with your content. Consider either a new image or re-cropping your image in a different way.

Elements

Image: This is the image that will be displayed as a banner. 

Title: An optional <h2> heading that will appear on top of the image, according to selected alignment (left, center or right). Maximum character count: 100.

Body: Optional <p> paragraph text that will appear on top of the image, according to selected alignment (left, center or right). Maximum character count: 300

Button: Optional. A link with custom text and button styling will appear on top of the image,according to selected alignment (left, center or right). Maximum character count on link text: 50 characters.

Use this Image (Banner) paragraph to highlight an important section of text or call to action.

 

Since the ability to move content from left to center to right is removed, the banner content is displayed below the image section to ensure good legibility.
