I will first add all the html and then start with the styles. Below is the index.html file. There is a container class, which wraps everything. Then the card class contain the main classes of navigation and details-wrapper, which will contain the two parts.

    <!DOCTYPE html>

        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
        <title>Frontend Mentor | Fylo data storage component</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css" />
        <div class="container">
          <main class="card">
            <section class="navigation">
              <img src="./images/logo.svg" alt="Logo" />
              <nav class="navigation-bar">
                <button class="nav-item" name="document">
                  <img src="./images/icon-document.svg" alt="document icon">
                <button class="nav-item" name="folder">
                  <img src="./images/icon-folder.svg" alt="folder icon">
                <button class="nav-item" name="upload">
                  <img src="./images/icon-upload.svg" alt="upload icon">
            <div class="details-wrapper">
              <div class="details-remaining">
                <span>185 GB</span> Left
              <section class="details-container">
                <p>You’ve used <b>815 GB</b> of your storage</p>
                <div class="range-indicator-container">
                  <div class="range-indicator">
                    <div class="range-point" />
                <div class="details-range">
                  <span>0 GB</span>
                  <span>1000 GB</span>

Now, we will add the basic css in our styles.css file. The font and the colors are provided by frontend mentors in file.


Now, our site with the basic styles will look like below.


First, we will add the styles for container and card. Here, we are making both of them as grid. Also, adding the background image at the bottom.


The web-page will look like below and quite nice.


Now, we will style our first section containing the Fylo logo. Here, we will first make the wrapping class navigation as grid, with two rows. Then the class navigation-bar containing our icons will be made flex.

After that just giving a bit styles for each icon with the nav-item class.


Now, our web-page will look like below with fylo component done.

We will target the next section details-wrapper now and making it flex first with direction as column. After that we are making our details-container class containing the main part as grid.

We are also making the details-range class as flex, with it’s two items having space in-between.


Now, our details section will look like below.


Next, we will add the styles for range. Here, also we are using the linear-gradient provided to us in file in the range-indicator.

Also, making the dot with the range-point class.


Now, our range will show perfectly.


Now, it’s time to style the details-remaining class. We are making it flex and the main thing is that making its position as relative.


Now, the details-remaining is looking as below.


Now, we will make the small arrow using the pseudo class before and moving it to the right position using absolute.

After that moving it to the right place using align-self and right and top.


Now, our whole design is complete for the desktop view.

Now, for the mobile view we don’t have to do much changes. In card class the grid-template-columns is been made as one column. Beside this in the container class the background image, is been made as cover.

For the details-remaining we are moving it to a different place with the help of position absolute. Also making the arrow disappear for details-remaining:before using it’s display as none.
