Do I need to incorporate the stylings that Guil has on page.css for a personal project?

Or is it just some css code for the tutorial. I would like to rebuild my portfolio page using flexbox so i'm wondering if I need that extra css.

page.css looks like it's the styling for the boxes (blue, Treehouse site font, etc.) and isn't needed for flexbox to work. You can use your own styling and add the flexbox parts to it.
