Create A Cool Layout Using CSS

Css is every web designer's favorite styling language to create layouts, graphics, shapes among others. To make it, even more, cooler it's very simple to learn, Yeah you heard me right, It's simple to learn.

To be more specific, in this tutorial I concentrated more on the shapes. With CSS shapes it enables us to flow content around circles, polygons, masks, ellipse, and other shapes.

In this post, I will share you with the youtube tutorial source code and also explain some of the CSS properties that I used to come up with such layout or effect.

The clip-path Property

The clip-path CSS property creates a clipping region that sets what part of an element should be shown. Parts that are inside the region are shown, while those outside are hidden.

The shape-outside Property

The shape-outside CSS property defines a shape—which may be non-rectangular—around which adjacent inline content should wrap.


Please note you can use this code in any project that you want, so the markup that i used in the tutorial was just for the layout(it's your choice, your limit). The main focus is on the styling file.


<div class="container">

    <div class="info">
      <img src="uganda.jpg" alt="uganda">
      <div class="content">
        <h1>Happy Independence 9th October 2020</h1>
        <p>Place your content here</p>


CSS code

/*This code is just for centering the content in the middle of the page*/
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
/*End here*/

/*Giving the container equal width both on the left & right side*/
  max-width: 80%;
  margin:0 auto;
/*Ends here*/

/*This is where the magic happens.*/
.info img{

  clip-path: circle(35% at 50% 50%);
  shape-outside: circle();

@media screen and (max-width: 684px){
  .info img{
    clip-path: none;
