CSS Grid Project: Nike Air Span+ 6 Advert


See the CSS Grid Nike Air Span+ 6 Advertisement.

CSS is pretty fuckin’ fun. I haven’t even delved into the depths of animation and I’m already seeing the great potential.

After browsing “iconic print ads” on Google Images for 20 minutes, I came across this interesting, albeit a bit questionable in its iconic status, advertisement from Nike. I know nothing of the shoe or the intent of the ad, but it had glowy bits and overlapping text. Cool.
What you see below is all CSS except for the shoe. While there aren’t many images of the Nike Air Span+ 6 out there (maybe this ad didn’t move units the way they’d expected), I was able to extract this one from a random snapshot. The image orientation was horizontal, so I used the transform property to rotate and scale to get the original position fairly close to the ad.

The glowy bits are all done using the box-shadow property. Really easy, but it works!

I want to take the three advertisements I’ve already done — two Porsche and this Nike ad — and put some animation in them, since the benefit of CSS isn’t just replicating what a print ad can do, but to make it more than what it could be otherwise.

More to come.

Hello ,

I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
Can you recommend something what works best for you?

Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
(Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

Hello ,

I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

Keep up the good work on your blog.


mate your site is really cool, but it has a poor Domain Authority
sad truth is that sites with poor Domain Authority won’t rank high in Google and in result get very little of traffic
I had the same problem in the past and my website didn’t rank high in Google
I searched for a professional who would help me with it; found one guy who really helped me rank higher in Google and increase my Domain Authority to 58! I’m super happy with this score
