Buttons and Tiles


Buttons are used for clear instructions for users to “do something,” like “Download the Student Handbook (PDF)” or “Register for the Webinar.” The call to action elevates the task that is crucial for the users who you anticipate are coming to your page.

Icons are used to grab the attention of the user faster. They are used as a common visual indicator that can be highly recognizable. FontAwesome icons are available for use in buttons. The Web Team can assist with icons.


Use Tiles to instruct your user to "go somewhere." Tiles highlight pages that have key information that you predict is essential to the users coming to your page.
