Maybe add a hashtag to this post like 'IDesignYouBuild' I'd definitely be interested in following that 😉👍

Oh my!!! Sorry to hear that this challenge makes you stay up so late 🤣🤣

This is amazing!! The design is well implemented, especially where user can scroll the footer if it overflows, and the custom mobile menu's background blur looks good!

Nicely done @wolzcodelife !! Thank you so much for challenging this! 🤟

Nicely done!

I think the hero image was stretched, I think it's the problem with Figma export svg.
But nonetheless, awesome job!

Thank you for participating! ⚡🤩

Awesome design! But the text kinda overlapped by the spaceman at laptop view. Maybe put z-index: 10 to .content?

Thank you for participating ya! 😄and maybe I shall come up with more challenging design for you 😆😂

Feedback: Design was amazing to try out frontend skills 👍
Demo: zernonia-fe-challenge.vercel.app
Github: github.com/cloudcrawler/zernonia-f...
Tech-Stack: HTML, SCSS, NPM
Learning Outcome: I am newbie in frontend development, everything was a learning for me. I recently learned advance CSS concepts like SCSS. Overall it was a good exercise to test out learning vs implementation reality.

I actually had an idea like this in my university a few year back. I designed but no one wanted to build. I should have asked more than one person... LOL

I guess in order to validate the idea, you gotta reach out to more people, not everyone would spend time practicing Web Dev skills.

That is true brother. At that time I came up with the idea I did not have access to the internet to share the idea with others.

Icic.. now that you have the power of internet, why not share it with the internet? Maybe you could use another title for that challenge, instead of 'I Design, You Build' 😜

Yes, that is true. I could do that. It is not too late. That is another great idea you have come up with. You must be filled with great ideas.

Lol.. Thank you.. But honestly, I just put myself at other's shoes, then I kinda know what people are looking for. I myself am a Web Developer too, and I wish people would share their design with me, so that I can play with different kinds of design style 😁

Feedback: I think this challenge was amazing, I only try to copy from figma.
I have some limitation with CSS

Demo: reactjs-frontend-xae.vercel.app/
Github: github.com/testerslol123/reactjs-f...
Tech-Stack: React, CSS
Learning Outcome:

  1. I learn to copy from figma
  2. I use some margin and css from people here.
  3. It's hard to align without using UI framework.

Great job! No worry, is it better to practice than never!
I see great potential in improving the site, maybe you can check out other's solution to learn how they wrote their CSS?

All in all, thank you for showcasing your masterpiece!

A little bit late but lets put mine;

Demo: idesignyoubuild.vercel.app/
Github: github.com/arslanmurat06/idesignyo...
Tech-Stack: React, Styled-Components
Learning Outcome:
It was great challenge. Took bounce effect from guy here. Responsive for small screens, not full for mobiles

Collapse

Zernonia

Nope it's not too late! Awesome job ya! The ground block image was squeezed in a smaller viewport, adding object-fit: cover; will ensure the image stay the same.

Responsive design still can improve a bit, I know it's particularly challenging for this challenge.

But all in all, good job! If you are ready, let's take on challenge #2. Much simpler and beautiful!

This is a great idea!

It's actually how I learned to code for the real world ➝ My manager at first agency 15 years ago would ask me to scour template sites for several good designs, and then I would be tasked with recreating/building on my own. It's crazy how much I learned, combined with one of Sitepoint's CSS fundamentals books.

I picked up more about front-end coding and set myself up for future success in those training exercises (he knew I was a junior designer fresh out of college) leaps beyond what school could have ever taught me. It was so valuable, in fact, that I intend to make it part of the onboarding process for any new or junior themers when I eventually become a manager.

Awesome activity you've laid the groundwork for here and hope to see it continue + thrive!

Awesome sharing! I couldn't agree with you more, rebuilding websites with good designs really level up my HTML and CSS skills as well.

I would definitely +1 on the idea of making building websites/components as part of the onboarding process, not only you can observe what's their capabilities in writing CSS, it also offers a great opportunity for them to expand their creativity!! 🤩

Feedback: Thanks for the challenge great design, I really Liked it.
Couldn't do responsive part though, as I did not start with that in mind and because of that I did not plan for it and made the project difficult to make responsive.
I wish I could though. Really gutted to not doing since This was my time to practice what I've been learning

Demo: chaderenyore.github.io/xae-challenge/
Github: github.com/chaderenyore/xae-challenge
Tech-Stack: SCSS

Learning Outcome:

  1. Practised what I've already learnt before, which is backdrop filter.
