Media Queries

When working with responsive web layouts at different sizes, we need a way to only style elements at certain screen sizes or displays. Media Queries in CSS allow us this flexibility and power.

Creating Media Queries

To create a media query in CSS we have to use the @media keyword and then describing the constraints that we want to use to limit when the set of styles should apply.

For instance if we want to style the body have a red background on phones with <480px wide screens:

@media screen and (max-width: 480px) {
  body {
    background: red;
