Callout box

Header

Ideally stick to one idea in a callout box. Keep your header short and concise; you can expand on it in the copy underneath.

Not all callout boxes need headers; see, for example, how callout boxes illustrate our tone of voice and how callout boxes can frame guidance.

Use callout boxes sparingly.
