Color

Content switchers have two main states: selected and unselected. By default, content switcher buttons are unselected with the selected state using a high contrast color.

Content switcher text should be set in sentence case, with only the first word in a phrase and any proper nouns capitalized. The text should not exceed three words.

Structure

Content switchers must have at least two options for the user to choose from. Each container that makes up the content switcher is equal in size. The width of a container is determined by the length of the longest container option text plus the 16 px / 1rem on both sides of the text.
