I created the Android logo using CSS and only 1 DIV. What do you think?

The following image was drawn in CSS using only 1 DIV:
Alt Text

I created the logo when I was bored and wanted to challenge myself drawing something with CSS but using only 1 DIV - the minimal amount of HTML element. The source code can be inspected here:

The result of it inspired me to do more of those projects - drawing something in CSS and using only 1 div.

Do you have any questions? Let me know

Awesome! Would love to see any over drawings you can do with just CSS! Maybe different tech-related logos?

Pretty cool I have noticed that there is a new trend with everyone trying to create CSS art with only 1 div. I should give it a try.

What's that and how is that related to my post?

The 100daysofcode.com/ is where developers commit to coding for at least 1 hour a day. It is a brilliant way to force yourself to learn and fast. There is even a Visual studio Code extension 100-days-of-code and a hashtag on dev.to for it.

And it relates to your article because I have seen many developers tweet about using only 1 div to create CSS artwork and they show their codepens.
