Spots

Icons that are clickable, with a little bit of text at the bottom


How we design them

  • A spot component (.gg-c-spot) can exist on its own or be nested inside a grid with a class of .gg-c-spots
  • This component should use only the large, huge, gargantuan and colossal icon sizes

How we use them

The grid defaults to a single column. Change the number of columns using a CSS custom property e.g.

.your-own-class {
    @media (min-width: 600px) {
      --columns: 3;
    }
}
  • Do not use more than 5 columns

Browser issues

  • Internet Explorer does not support CSS grid or CSS custom properties. This component uses flexbox to provide a fallback layout for Internet Explorer 11 users
