How do you create a layout that has scattered elements?

Hi there,
it’s my first time posting on these forums so sorry if the question format is not correct.
I was tasked with doing a layout that contains a lot of scattered elements in a container that are “cutoff” on both sides (left and right) on smaller screen sizes and I don’t know what CSS properties I should use. The layout images are below.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Yeah, everything ArielLeslie told you plus FlexBox or Grid. Honestly, I made a similar landing page with your concept using Flexbox.

Happy coding.
