Text Columns

Though not as powerful as flexbox, text columns provide a handy way to create a flexible column layout (it doesn’t have to be text only). Pro tip: make sure any children of a text column is set to position: inline-block.

Background-image

There’s two ways to insert images into your website. One is to add an image element (the <img> HTML tag) and the other is to add a background-image CSS style to a div. They each have their place. But, a background image can be flexible, adjusting to the changes of its div.

Landscape Declarations

As much as possible, make mobile style changes in mobile landscape, not portrait. That will eliminate double work.

Ephemeral Units (EM)

By setting the font-size on your body tag and using EMs for all other styles, you can increase or decrease the size of all the typography on your site with a single style change.

Flexbox Alignment Reverse

Flexbox is a responsive powerhouse. Switch from horizontal alignment on desktop to vertical on tablet and mobile. You can event use “reverse” order to change which column displays first.

Keep your classes tidy.

CSS classes are powerful. But, adding a class every time you need to make an adjustment can make your site unwiedly. Plan ahead and use combo classes for minor tweaks.

Proportional Units

Don’t limit yourself to hard pixels for your styles. Experiment with responsive units like viewport width (vw). You can even use vw to style text.
