As always, just copy and paste it and also scan through it once.

Part 2: CSS

In this part, we will style the landing page.


/* global styles */
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans:wght@400;700&family=Poppins:wght@600&display=swap'); 

* {
    box-sizing: border-box; 
}

body {
    margin: 0; 
    padding: 0; 
    font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; 
}

.container {
    width: 1200px; 
    max-width: 90%;  
    margin: 0 auto; 
}

h1,
h2, 
h3 {
    font-family: 'Poppins', sans-serif; 
    color: hsl(192, 100%, 9%);   
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For the style, we first imported the font from google fonts. Then added some basic styles to the body, container, and to the titles.

/* utilities */
.btn {
    background-color: hsl(322, 100%, 66%);
    border: 0; 
    outline: none; 
    padding: 15px 50px; 
    border-radius: 10rem; 
    color: #fff; 
    font-weight: bold; 
    font-family: "open sans";
    font-size: 1.1rem; 
    cursor: pointer;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now we got a utility class. Here we added the global style for the buttons.


/* header style */
header {
    background: url("./images/bg-hero-desktop.svg") hsl(193, 100%, 96%);  
}

nav {
    padding: 50px 0 50px 0;   
    display: flex; 
    align-items: center; 
    justify-content: space-between; 
}

nav img {
    width: 200px;  
}

.signup-btn {
    background-color: #fff; 
    color: hsl(192, 100%, 9%); 
    text-decoration: none; 
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now we are going to start styling.
Here, we added the background color and image to the header.
Then created the navigation bar with flexbox and styled the sign-up button.


/* hero style */
.hero {
    display: flex; 
    align-items: center; 
    justify-content: space-between; 
    padding-bottom: 70px;  
}

.hero .left {
    width: 40%; 
}

h1 {
    font-size: 2.5rem; 
}

p {
    font-size: 1.2rem; 
    line-height: 1.5; 
}

.hero .right {
    width: 50%;  
}

.hero img {
    width: 100%; 
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here we styled the hero section. First, we added flexbox to the hero so the sections stay next to each other. Then styled the title, description, and the button.

After that, we gave the hero image 100% of width so the image stays nicely.

.section {
    display: flex;  
    justify-content: space-between; 
    align-items: center; 
    box-shadow: 0 3px 10px rgba(134, 133, 133, 0.16), 0 3px 10px rgba(190, 187, 187, 0.23);
    margin: auto; 
    margin-bottom: 40px;    
    padding: 50px;  
}

.section-info {
    width: 45%; 
    padding-left: 5%; 
} 

h3 {
    font-size: 1.5rem;
}

.section-info p {
    color: hsl(208, 11%, 55%); 
    font-size: 1rem; 
}

.section-img {
    width: 35%;
}

.section img {
    width: 100%; 
}

/* section-1 styles */
.section-1 {
    margin-top: 150px;  
}

/* section-2 styles */
.section-2 .section-img {
    padding-left: 3%; 
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here, we styled the sections. First, we added the basic style to the section. Then we styled the section info and the section image.

/* join us section */
.join-community {
    width: 80%;  
    margin: auto; 
    box-shadow: 0 3px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.16), 0 3px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23); 
    padding: 40px 0; 
    text-align: center; 
    border-radius: 10px; 
    margin-top: 100px; 
    margin-bottom: -80px; 
    background: #fff; 
    position: relative; 
    z-index: 1; 
}  

h2 {
    font-size: 2rem; 
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here, we styled the Join community card. This is just some basic styles and little box-shadow so the box looks separated from the body.
Also to take on top of the footer we used position relative and -80px of margin bottom.

footer {
    background: black; 
    color: hsl(193, 100%, 96%);     padding-top: 120px;
    padding-bottom: 100px;   
}

.footer-container {
    display: flex;
    align-items: center; 
    justify-content: space-between; 

}

.icon-and-text {
    display: flex;
    margin-top: 20px;  
} 

.icon-and-text img {
    width: 20px;
    height: 20px; 
    margin-top: 5px;  
}

.icon-and-text p {
    margin: 0; 
    padding-left: 20px; 
}

.footer-1 {
    width: 35%; 
}

ul {
    margin: 0; 
}

footer ul li {
    list-style: none;
    margin-bottom: 10px;  
}

ul li a {
    color: hsl(193, 100%, 96%); 
    text-decoration: none; 
}

.social-icons .fab {
    margin: 0 10px;
    padding: 10px; 
    border: 1px solid #fff;  
    border-radius: 50%; 
}

.social-icons .fa-facebook-f  {
    padding: 10px 12px;  
    display: inline-block; 
} 

footer .copy {  
    text-align: right; 
    font-size: 1rem;  
} 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here, we styled the footer. We used flexbox to build the layout. After that, styled the icon-and-text section and at last, we styled the footer navigations.

So far we got this.

/* hover state */
.get-started:hover {
    background-color: hsl(322, 100%,  80%);
}

.fab:hover {
    color: hsl(322, 100%,  80%);
    border-color: hsl(322, 100%,  80%);
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This is the hover states style for the buttons.

@media screen and (max-width: 1000px) {

    .container {
        max-width: 80%; 
    }

    /* nav mobile styles */
    nav img {
        width: 150px; 
    }

    .signup-btn {
        padding: 10px 20px;  
    }

    .btn {
        font-size: .9rem; 
    }

    /* hero mobile styles */
    .hero,
    .section {
        flex-direction: column; 
    }

    .hero .left {
        width: 100%; 
        text-align: center; 
        padding-bottom: 40px;  
    }    

    h1 {
        font-size: 1.8rem; 
    }

    p {
        font-size: 1rem; 
    }

    .hero .get-started {  
        width: 80%; 
    }

    .hero .right {
        width: 100%;  
    }

    /* section mobile styles */
    .section {
        padding: 30px; 
    }

    .section-info, 
    .section-img {
        width: 100%; 
        text-align: center; 
    }

    h2 {
        font-size: 1.2rem; 
    }

    /* change the order of the image */
    .section-1 .section-img, 
    .section-3 .section-img {
        order: -6; 
    } 

    /* footer mobile styles */
    .footer-container {
        flex-direction: column; 
        align-items: flex-start; 
    }

    .footer-1 {
        width: 100%;
        margin-bottom: 40px;  
    }

    .footer-4 { 
        padding-top: 80px; 
        align-self: center; 
    }

    footer .copy {
        text-align: center; 
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This is the mobile design, here we are just making it 1 column layout with the flex-direction column. And adjusting the margin and padding to fit in this layout.
