Overlap on the Web, Graphic Design Made Easy with CSS Grid

661 ratings | 16312 views
CSS Grid makes it easy to create overlap in our designs and opens up a world of new possibilities in graphic design on the web. For decades, we wanted to create these kinds of designs, but didn't have the tools. We trained each other to stop being creative and stop wanting to make such layouts. It's time to shake these old habits up and explore what's now possible. Jen walks you through an example of how items can overlap, be fully responsive, robust and resilient.

I just found Your channel, and what's super helpful is the tools to inspect grids. I used grid before, but never quite used that line numbering. Thanks! Subscribed!

Hi Jen Is That true : "Flexbox layout is most appropriate to the components of an application, and small-scale layouts, while the Grid layout is intended for larger scale layouts." I read it in css-tricks.com Thanks
Russell Bishop (7 months ago)
I would also disagree with this. I've found grid really useful for small components that might wrap, where you want even grid-graps horizontally and vertically.

“Flexbox Layout is most appropriate to the components of an application, and small-scale layouts, while Grid layout is intended for larger scale layouts.” Is this true? No, this is not true. Grid was not “intended for larger scale”. Both were intended to be used however you want to use them. As I cover in my video about Flexbox vs Grid, each accomplishes a different kind of layout. I do expect that Grid will be used more often for the “bigger” layouts — the whole page, etc. Both are amazing for little components. It depends on the result you want, not the size of the layout.

Great video, thank you! btw, what is this browser/devtools used? Are you planning a video about tools?
Yanush Zakshewsky (7 months ago)
Good to know! thx!
Layout Land (7 months ago)
Yes I am going to make a video about the tools available for layout. That is the Firefox CSS Grid Inspector. It’s in Firefox DevTools, in a panel marked “Layout”.

I stopped this video halfway, just needing to say that I love it! A design focused explanation of the new functionality in css. Super inspiring! Thanks a lot!!! Having typed this, now I can watch the rest of the video more peacefully .....
Dave Cruickshank (7 months ago)
Love your videos, Jen. Thank you for being such an inspiration. Keep them coming! With the power of css grid and the forthcoming css shapes, I can see it won't be long before designing the Web will be done in desktop publishing apps, and will be identical to designing print publications (but responsive and dynamic)
