Narrative

A Narrative block sets out a story or article using Markdown-enabled content. Narrative blocks are always set on a light steel background (bg-steel-85-light).

Narrative block structure

  • Block heading
  • An image or embedded media (optional)
    • If this element is side-aligned, it is contained within an aside
  • Block content

Narrative block variations

  • Centre aligned: Where the image is full width and the text flows underneath the image.
  • Left aligned: Where the image is aligned to the left and text flows around it on the right
  • Right aligned: Where the image is aligned to the right and text flows around it on the left
