When I float the logo left, the colored header disappears and is pushed upwards to a tiny margin at the top of the page?

 @media screen and (min-width: 660px) {


  nav {
    background: none;
    margin-right: 5%;
    width: 45%;

  #logo {
    float: left;
    width: 45px;
    margin-left: 5%;
    text-align: left;

  h1 { 
    font-size: 2.5em;

  h2 {
    font-size: 0.825em;

  header {
    border-bottom: 5px solid #599a68;
    clear: both;

Floats are ignored in document flow calculations.

To compensate for this, you may need something with the "clear" property after the logo. This is commonly done with something called a "clearfix".

Thanks for your help Steven, the clearfix worked perfectly :)
