CSSBattle | #15 Overlap

Welcome to CSSBattle Challenges!

In this short article, I go through my solution for CSSBattle - #15 Overlap challenge. Please refer to the code snippet below to get a better insight into my thought processes and the implementation detail.


Overlap Challenge


<div class="container">
  <div class="circle left"></div>
  <div class="circle right">
    <div class="hidden-circle"></div>

  * {
    box-sizing: border-box;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
  .container {
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    background: #09042A;
    position: relative;
  .circle {
    position: absolute;
    top: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    width: 150px;
    height: 150px;
    border-radius: 50%;
  .left {
    background: #7B3F61;
    transform: translate(calc(-50% + -50px), -50%)
  .right {
    background: #E78481;
    transform: translate(calc(-50% + 50px), -50%);
    overflow: hidden;
  .hidden-circle {
    width: 150px;
    height: 150px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    background: #09042A;
    transform: translateX(-100px);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Key Takeaway(s):

  • use overflow hidden to adjust shape of parent element

As always, I welcome any feedback or questions regarding the implementation detail of the challenge. Otherwise, I hope this was useful!
