CSS Grid: Overlapping grid-template-areas

When working with CSS Grid, I’m a huge fan of using Grid Template Areas. In this short video Kevin Powell builds a small layout where certain elements overlap inside a grid container. I was very glad to see Kevin also go for grid-template-areas here, showing exactly why I like using them: the ability to reshuffle the entire layout in a Media Query.

Grid-template-areas are amazing, but sometimes we want to overlap things over areas and that isn’t really possible… or is it?

🔥 You should definitely subscribe to Kevin’s YouTube Channel.
