    Question How to do this webdesign ?

    Hello there.

    I'm trying to make a webdesign for my website, and actually, I absolutely don't know how to do this.

    This is what I'd like to achieve (more or less) :


    I'm sure I could do this with some position:absolute... The maine issue here, is that i'd like my design to work properly on every resolution (or pretty much).

    There's nothing moving in this (just static images). I'd like to find some resources about this (tutorials, walkthrough, just some hints...) but unfortunately I can't find what keywords to use on search engines for this project (I don't know how i could call this type of webdesign).

    If you have some ideas... Thank you very much

    The short answer is "you probably can't", at least not the way you've laid it out. Your big problem is going to be your text. Text on the web is relative...no matter what you do to make it a fixed font size, someone will eventually be able to resize it so that the text will spill outside of the circles. It's not a bad idea...it's just not really a browser-friendly idea. That's more of a Visio document.

    You could possibly pull it off as a responsive design if you made all of your circles images and then made fixed-width layouts for desktops / laptops, tablets, and / or cell phones. The problems thaa you then run into are that of accessibility and SEO...you have to provide alt text and probably have to use the little-known longdesc attribute for images, you'll end up with slower load times, and you'll have issues in that you can't organize your document semantically.

    Again, this is going to be a nightmare no matter how you do it.

    Thank you for your answer, TheGAME1264.

    Would it change something if every circle would just be a normal rectangle div, and just to keep the arrows ?

    This could work with CSS. For the accessibility reasons GAME mentioned, you'll have to be very careful with your units. You'll need to use ems, or even better rems with a backup em setting for backward compatibility. By setting relative units based on the font-size (em, rem, en), elements will grow based on the font size. That's why I suggest rem. It's based on the root font size, so you won't have to worry about cascading.

    I would steer clear of absolute postioning and use floats combined with margins to achieve the layout. This would keep the items responsive.

    That should help you achieve the layout. If the arrows are actually part of the design and not just part of the mock up, you may have a harder time, but some smartly-placed SVG might do the trick.
