Pagination is used to display information from large data sets in smaller, more consumable chunks.

Redlines: We don't include redline comps because it's always more accurate to use developer tools to inspect the coded components, or a plugin such as the Prism Redline Tool.

Pagination tells users how many pages a result set has been broken into and allows them to page through or jump directly to a specific page of results.

Use pagination for “active searching”, where the user is searching for an exact item within the entire result set. Use tap-to-load to browse for an item that's inexact (i.e. "I'll know it when I see it").

Either centered and justified alignment can be applied to pagination.

The user should be aware of the sort order while progressing through pagination (e.g. Most Recent, Highest Priced, Most Relevant, etc.).

Do's and Don'ts

Common Button Labels and Usage

Title case, 2-3 words maximum.
Do not combine actions in a label (exception: "Customize & Buy").
If standard labels don't fit the button's purpose, align label with the task the user is attempting.
