Advanced CSS & Responsive Layout Project Complete

Just finished up a personal project focusing on more advanced layouts this time and creating a responsive layout from scratch without utilizing any frameworks. Can view the live single page layout here.


Learned quite a bit on the project, there are a few small improvements that I could make, but overall I am happy with the end result.

One of the biggest problems on this project I found was once my CSS had 500+ lines in it finding specific items to manipulate or fixing issues became quite a bit more difficult. The code becomes much harder to manage and harder to navigate despite my comments. Perhaps next I should look into Sass for more modular / manageable code.

Anyways, any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated.

hey man, site looks cool! I only took a quick look but i found something to critique. When the page reaches the width where the search box moves to a second line below your nav, it might be nice if you centered the nav (the search seems centered.

So far as managing the CSS, I break mine into two files as is seen in some of the treehouse tutorials, a main.css and a responsive.css for media queries.
