Chat app CSS illustration
In this challenge, you'll be building out the entire app illustration from scratch. This will seriously test your CSS skills. So give it a go if you feel confident!
- Sketch and Figma design file access - Unlock with pro
- JPEG design files for mobile & desktop layouts
- Style guide for fonts, colors, etc
- Optimized image assets
- README file to help you get started
- HTML file with pre-written content
Your challenge is to build out this feature illustration using HTML & CSS and get it looking as close to the design as possible.
The only assets we provide in this challenge are the image of the person in the app UI and the 3 images of the dog. You need to create everything else using HTML & CSS!
Your users should be able to:
- View the optimal layout for the component depending on their device's screen size
- See the chat interface animate on the initial load (optional)

How can I get help if I'm stuck on a challenge?
The best (and quickest) way to get help on a challenge is in our Slack community. There are thousands of other developers in there, so it's a great place to ask questions. We even have a dedicated “help” channel! If you haven't joined yet, you can get an invite to our Slack community here.
Can I use these projects in my portfolio?
Definitely! Please do feel free to use whatever you build in your portfolio. Helping developers add professional-looking projects to their portfolio was one of the reasons we created this platform!
Is there an official solution I can take a look at?
We don't provide “official” solutions for the challenges. This is because there is no single perfect way to complete a challenge. Instead, you're encouraged to review other people's code in the community. You can learn so much by seeing how other people have approached the same challenges and giving them feedback.
Do I get a code review when I post my solution?
Frontend Mentor is a collaborative learning community where everyone can give feedback to each other. If you'd like to receive feedback from the community, please be sure to post a question when you submit your solution. The more specific you can be, the better. Being clear with your questions means you're much more likely to receive valuable feedback from others.
How do I submit my solution?
We'd recommend reading our complete guide to submitting solutions. If you get stuck and need help, please feel free to ask questions in our Slack community, and we'll help you submit your project.
