Also, now is one of the most popular CSS frameworks in the whole web development industry! ⚡️

Some of the benefits of using Tailwind CSS include:

Consistency: By using the same set of classes throughout a project, developers can ensure that the design is consistent across different pages and components.

Customizability: Tailwind CSS is highly customizable, allowing developers to easily adjust the design to match their project's specific needs.

Accessibility: Tailwind CSS provides a set of classes that make it easy to implement accessibility best practices, such as providing sufficient contrast between text and background colors.

A profile card is a great way to showcase important information about an individual or organization on a website. In this article, we’ll show you how to create a modern profile card using the popular CSS framework, Tailwind CSS.

So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Setting up the Tailwind CSS config file

Let’s set up our project by creating the Tailwind CSS config file and adding base CSS. Here we will use some colors, shadows, and more from the upcoming Horizon UI template for Tailwind.


module.exports = {
  darkMode: 'class',
  content: ['./src/**/*.{js,jsx,ts,tsx}'],
  theme: {
    extend: {
      fontFamily: {
        dm: ['DM Sans', 'sans-serif'],
      boxShadow: {
        '3xl': '14px 17px 40px 4px',
      borderRadius: {
        primary: '20px',
    colors: ({ colors }) => ({
      white: '#ffffff',
      lightSecondary: '#A3AED0',
      bluePrimary: '#2B3674',
      gray: {
        DEFAULT: colors.gray,
        50: '#f8f9fa',
        100: '#edf2f7',
        200: '#e9ecef',
        300: '#cbd5e0',
        400: '#a0aec0',
        500: '#adb5bd',
        600: '#a3aed0',
        700: '#707eae',
        800: '#252f40',
        900: '#1b2559',
      navy: {
        50: '#d0dcfb',
        100: '#aac0fe',
        200: '#a3b9f8',
        300: '#728fea',
        400: '#3652ba',
        500: '#1b3bbb',
        600: '#24388a',
        700: '#1B254B',
        800: '#111c44',
        900: '#0b1437',
      shadow: {
        500: 'rgba(112, 144, 176, 0.08)',


@import url(';200;300;400;500;600;700;800&display=swap');
@import url(';500;700&display=swap');
@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

@layer base {
	html {
	  font-family: 'DM Sans', sans-serif;
	  font-feature-settings: 'kern';
	  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
	  letter-spacing: -0.5px;

Step 2: Create the HTML structure

First, we’ll create the HTML structure for our profile card. We’ll use a div container to hold the card, and within that, we’ll add several divs to hold the different elements of our card, such as the background image, profile picture, name, and its statistics.



//Banner image

  <div style='background-image: url("");'>

//Profile picture (separate div for future positioning)

	<img src="" alt="" />

//General info

    <h4>Adela Parkson</h4>
    <p>Product Manager</p>

Step 3: Styling

Add Tailwind CSS classes so the card has its own identity.

<div class="dark:!bg-navy-800 shadow-shadow-500 shadow-3xl rounded-primary relative mx-auto flex h-full w-full max-w-[550px] flex-col items-center bg-white bg-cover bg-clip-border p-[16px] dark:text-white dark:shadow-none">
  <div class="relative mt-1 flex h-32 w-full justify-center rounded-xl bg-cover" style='background-image: url("");'>
    <div class="absolute -bottom-12 flex h-[88px] w-[88px] items-center justify-center rounded-full border-[4px] border-white bg-pink-400">
		<img class="h-full w-full rounded-full" src="" alt="" />
  <div class="mt-16 flex flex-col items-center">
    <h4 class="text-bluePrimary text-xl font-bold">Adela Parkson</h4>
    <p class="text-lightSecondary text-base font-normal">Product Manager</p>
  <div class="mt-6 mb-3 flex gap-4 md:!gap-14">
    <div class="flex flex-col items-center justify-center">
      <h3 class="text-bluePrimary text-2xl font-bold">17</h3>
      <p class="text-lightSecondary text-sm font-normal">Posts</p>
    <div class="flex flex-col items-center justify-center">
      <h3 class="text-bluePrimary text-2xl font-bold">9.7K</h3>
      <p class="text-lightSecondary text-sm font-normal">Followers</p>
    <div class="flex flex-col items-center justify-center">
      <h3 class="text-bluePrimary text-2xl font-bold">434</h3>
      <p class="text-lightSecondary text-sm font-normal">Following</p>

Step 4: Hooray! You’re done! 🎉
