How to deal with off-grid image placement ?

Is there an easy way to achieve this type of design with ease?
Layout Design

The whole width of the layout is 1440px. The content placement is within 1330px(suppose).
Is there any way so that I can work within the 1330px container?

If I understand the question correctly, you can achieve this using css grid!

If you need the blue box header, you can format your grid as (roughly):

.container {
    display: grid;
    grid-template-rows: {headerheight} 1fr;
    grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;

Then you can place a div on the left side area and add padding to format it like this.

Informative guides that may help:

Thanks for the reply. I guess add padding is one of the solution to achieve the above design. But is there any other ways ?
I would definitely try the padding one. :)

You could use flexbox instead.

That way if you have a lot of text, it won't still start halfway down the page.
