Do's and don'ts block

The components flexible layout allows for an addition images to support the text blocks as needed.

Usage best practices

Consider using the do's and don'ts block to:

  • draw attention to one or a set of rules around a particular situation
  • juxtapose a pair of rules to reinforce the understanding of a component usage

Having both the "do's" and the "don'ts" rules side by side creates a stronger impression when explaining the rules. However, the "dos" and the "don'ts" blocks can be used independently. Use the "do's" to reinforce good practices and use the "don'ts" to bring attention to detrimental actions.

Usage examples:

  • to display the usage rules for components in the design system
  • to show what can or cannot go into the blue and green carts

Related components:


Use concise and clear language to point out a rule. Limit to 1-2 sentences. 

Use a combination of "do's" and "don'ts" to emphasize a particular usage rule.

When using images, crop to the most relevant content.


Do not use the block for detailed explanation of guidelines.

Do not use a "Don't" when a "Do" is sufficient to explain the rule. 

Do not use images that are not cropped or presented in a way that make a straight point.
