Geometric Shapes Using CSS


To Create Different Geometric Shapes It Takes Only Two Steps:-

  1. Make a HTML file and define markup for shapes
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling for shapes


Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup for shapes

We make a HTML file and save it with a name shapes.html

<html>
<head>
 <link href="shapes.css"  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">
 <div id="shape_wrapper">
  <div id="circle" class="shape_div">
  </div>
 
  <div id="triangle" class="shape_div">
  </div>

  <div id="parallelogram" class="shape_div">
  </div>

  <br>

  <div id="oval" class="shape_div">
  </div>

  <div id="cone" class="shape_div">
  </div>

  <div id="trapezoid" class="shape_div">
  </div>
 </div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create divs for different geometric shapes and insert shapes.css file which we were going to create in next step.



Step 2.Make a CSS file and define styling for shapes

We make a CSS file and save it with a name shapes.css

body
{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
}
h1
{
 margin-top:50px;
 color:grey;
 font-size:50px;
}
h1 p
{
 font-size:14px;
}
#shape_wrapper
{
 margin-left:220px;
}
.shape_div
{
 float:left;
 margin:20px;
}
#circle 
{ 
 width: 100px;
 height: 100px;
 background: #FA8258; 
 border-radius: 50px;
}
#triangle 
{
 height: 0;
 width: 0;
 border-left: 75px solid transparent;
 border-right: 75px solid transparent;
 border-bottom: 100px solid #FA8258;
}
#parallelogram 
{
 height: 100px;
 width: 150px; 
 background: #FA8258;
 transform: skew(20deg);
}
#oval 
{
 clear:both;
 float:left;
 height: 150px;
 width: 75px;
 background: #FA8258;
 border-radius: 50%;
}
#cone 
{
 height: 0;
 width: 0;
 border-left: 75px solid transparent;
 border-right: 75px solid transparent;
 border-top: 150px solid #FA8258;
 border-radius: 50%;
}
#trapezoid 
{
 height: 30;
 width: 100px;
 border-bottom: 100px solid #FA8258;
 border-left: 50px solid transparent;
 border-right: 50px solid transparent;
}
