The ultimate Flexbox cheat sheet

If you're a web designer then we really shouldn't need to be telling you about Flexbox by now. Even non-web people have got the idea that it's a powerful responsive web design tool for creating pages that arrange page layouts in a predictable way to look good in any viewport.

Knowing it's good, however, isn't the same as being able to actually use it, and while there's not actually great deal to the Flexbox specification, figuring out how it all fits together can feel like a bit of an uphill struggle.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
