Do you know what companies like Apple (tech), Netflix (streaming), Solana (crypto), and Twitch (gaming) all have in common?
It's not their near infinite web design budgets or the billions they sell through their websites.
No, they are ALL forward thinking technology companies and they ALL use CSS Grid.
And they don't just use it because it's “pretty” or the latest fad—they use it because it allows them to creatively engage their visitors and turn those visitors into leads and customers.
CSS Grid is a true powerhouse of a technology. It allows you to build those impossible looking layouts that seem to defy gravity.
It is the secret weapon of the biggest brands and top-tier designers. There's just one rather funny problem. Most people who build or manage websites have never even heard of it!
We want to change that because we believe...
If billion & trillion dollar companies are using CSS Grid on their websites, you can as well!
(And we can show you how).
CSS Grid is so forward thinking and so incredibly powerful that the sites and layouts and heck, even the clients of tomorrow will be demanding it to stay relevant. You really don't have a choice.
This got us thinking...
What if there was one place you could go that taught everything you need to know about CSS Grid...from the ground up...so you or your team can go from zero to hero in as little as a day?
And what if you were given some of the best examples of CSS Grid on the market today. Yes, given! Designs you could use right away on personal or client sites.
And imagine, if in addition to all of that—we created a powerful visual editor that lets you customize those CSS Grid layouts (or build your own) without having to mess with any fussy code?
Well that would be pretty darn awesome!
