  </body>
</html>

As always we are not going to go deeper into the markup. Just scan through it and copy it over to your code editor.

Part 2: CSS

Now we are going to style this landing page.

@import url("https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans&family=Raleway:wght@400;700&display=swap");

/* 
font-family: 'Raleway', sans-serif;  */

* {
  box-sizing: border-box;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

body {
  font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif;
  color: hsl(243, 87%, 12%);
}

.container {
  width: 1200px;
  max-width: 90%;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 50px 0;
}

a {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: hsl(243, 87%, 12%);
}

In this part, we added some global styles.

First, we imported the font from google font. Then, we added box-sizing and removed margin and padding from every element. After that, we styled the container, gave it a fixed width of 1200px a max-width of 90% so it styes in nicely without overflowing.

At last, we styled the a tag. We removed the underline and changed the color.


/* header styles */

nav {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: space-between;
}

nav ul {
  display: flex;
}

nav li {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 25px;
}

In this section, we styled the navigation. We gave the nav element display flex so the navigation items sit next to each other.
Then we added display flex to the ul element. So that, the li stay next to each other.

/* hero styles */
.hero {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  margin-bottom: 5rem;
}

.hero > section {
  flex: 1;
}

h1 {
  font-size: 2.5rem;
  margin-bottom: 25px;
}

p {
  font-weight: 600;
  line-height: 1.5;
  margin-bottom: 25px;
}

.left {
  padding-right: 40px;
}

input,
button {
  padding: 10px 10px;
}

form input {
  width: 60%;
  border: 2px solid hsl(0, 0%, 75%);
}

form button {
  width: 30%;
  margin-left: 10px;
  background-color: hsl(224, 93%, 58%);
  border-color: hsl(224, 93%, 58%);
  color: #fff;
}

.right {
  padding-top: 50px;
}

.right img {
  width: 100%;
}

Here, we styled the hero section. First, we added display flex to the hero, so the sections stay next to each other. Then, with added flex 1 to all the sections of hero, so each section takes 50% of the space.

After that, we styled the title and description. It's just some basic styles, increased the font size to match the style and some margin to make some space.

Then added some padding to the left section. After that, we styled the form input and gave the right sections image width of 100%.

This is what we got.

/* section-1 styles */

.section-1 {
  padding: 3rem 0;
  background-color: hsl(240, 75%, 98%);
  position: relative;
}

.section-1::before {
  content: " ";
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  background: url("./images/bg-curve-desktop.svg") no-repeat;
  position: absolute;
  top: -80px;
  left: 0;
}

.section-container {
  display: flex;
}

h2 {
  font-size: 2rem;
  padding-bottom: 25px;
}

.section-1 p {
  width: 80%;
}

.section-1 a {
  color: hsl(170, 45%, 43%);
  border-bottom: 2px solid;
  padding-bottom: 5px;
}

Here, we styled the section-1 section. Added background color. Then added the curve on top of the section. After that added display flex to the .section-container, and styled the title and description.

.box {
  background-color: #fff;
  width: 350px;
  padding: 25px;
  margin-top: 60px;
  border-radius: 10px;
  box-shadow: 0 14px 28px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 10px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
}

.box p {
  width: 100%;
  font-size: 0.9rem;
}

.box .author {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
}

.author img {
  border-radius: 50%;
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  margin-right: 10px;
}

.box::before {
  content: url("./images/icon-quotes.svg");
  margin-bottom: 10px;
  display: inline-block;
}

In this section, we styled the testimonial card.

/* section 2 */
.section-2 {
    background: hsl(238, 22%, 44%); 
    color: #fff; 
}

.section-container {
    align-items: center; 
}

.section-2 .left {
    width: 50%;
}

.section-2 .left h3 {
  font-size: 1.5rem; 
  padding-bottom: 2rem; 
}

.section-2 .right {
    width: 50%; 
}

.section-2 form {
    display: flex; 
    flex-direction: column;
}

.section-2 input {
    width: 100%;
    margin-bottom: 10px;  
}

.section-2 button {
    margin: 0; 
    width: 50%; 
}

In this part, we styled the section-2 section. First, we added the background color and color to this section. Then added made the .left and right section width of 50%. Then, styled the title and description. And at the end, we styled the form.

/* footer */
footer {
  background: hsl(243, 87%, 12%);
  color: #fff; 
}

.footer-container {
  display: flex; 
  justify-content: space-between; 
  align-items: center; 
  padding-top: 5rem; 
}

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

footer ul li a {
  color: #fff; 
}

.footer-container div > * {
  margin-bottom: 20px; 
}

.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; 
}

Now comes the footer. At first, we changed the background, then added display flex to the footer container, so the sections stack next to each other. After that, we styled the lists and the social icons.

Note: In the footer, we got the logo in white color. But frontend mentor didn't provide it. I changed the color. So, check out the source code link, I'll upload it there.

/* mobile styles */
@media screen and (max-width: 1000px) {
  nav img {
    width: 100px; 
  }

  nav li {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0 8px 
  }

  .hero {
    flex-direction: column;  
    text-align: center; 
  }

  .hero .right {
    order: -1;  
    padding-bottom: 5rem; 
  }

  /* sections */
  .section-container {
    flex-direction: column;
  }

  .section-1  p {
    width: 100%; 
  }

  .box {
    margin: 4rem auto; 
  }

  .left {
    padding-right: 0; 
  }

  .section-2 .left {
    width: 100%; 
  }

  .section-2 .right {
    width: 100%; 
  }

  .section-2 button {
    width: 100%; 
  }

  form button, form input{
    width: 100%;
    margin: 10px 0;  
  }

  .footer-container {
    flex-direction: column; 
    align-items: flex-start;
  }

  footer div {
    margin-bottom: 2rem; 
  }

}

In the mobile styles, All we did is made every container flex-direction column, so the layout becomes one column. And then adjusted the margin, padding, and font size to fit the screen.
