Checkerboard 6.2

Toggle full screen Open in new window Toggle example guides Toggle HTML markup

This checkerboard pattern alternates between images and content areas. This is primarily used on marketing/landing pages, its visually appealing but increases cognitive load on the visitor. Add the .swap class to .checker-board-wrapper to have it swap the pattern of how it alternates.

When to use: When the main purpose of the content is to sell something or re-enforce an idea in a visually attractive way.

When not to: If pages main objective is for a user to accomplish a goal then this adds "noise" and may impede that pages objective.

Notes: Best when used with 2-5 row increments. Be sure pictures meaningfully support the text content and aren't just pretty visuals.
