Profile name next to photo

This is something I come across a lot when doing CSS challenges, a profile card where the name is next to the profile photo. What is the best way to achieve this?

my example below on the right is the finished look but I’ve got a container inside a container to achieve this via flex-box. Can’t help but feeling there’s a much cleaner way.

My examples


The easiest way I can think of would be:

<div class="card">
  <img class="profile"/>
    <div class="name">John Doe</div>
    <div class="job">Frontend Developer</div>
.card {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;

Of course, it’s very simplified version and you would have to add some margins, etc. But this is the main idea for the layout of the card.

Alternatively you could use display grid, if you don’t want this one extra div.

Also, w3schools has a lot of tutorials to create simple cards, so you might find something useful there:

Good luck :wink:
