CSS DIV web page positioning

Hi Everyone,

I am currently working on a small web page challenge as a test for a junior web developer.

I am to build a basic web page (based on the attached mock up). I understand the concept, however it has been along time since i have written in CSS\HTML and last time i did it was common practice to use tables for positioning. I have since learnt that this is no longer correct and I am struggling to get 2 of my components to line up.



The section is an image gallery, which I have already got working and fully interactive, however i cannot get the main image and the sample images to line up as required.

Below is the code I have written, if anyone could help me with the positioning it would be greatly appreciated. (Also if there is anything in there that is bad practice please flag it up)

Thank you,
Josh

Thanks for your help! It took a bit of playing around but I got it to work.
You are welcome.
Hi,

I have continued to work on this and its a bit further along, but i have come to a similar issue with positioning.
I am just trying to get my head round how the different positioning and flex methods work.

The section I am currently working on is the order form on the page. I have attached all of my code this time.Web-Challenge-Site---Copy.zip

If you could offer any advise it would be appreciated.

Thank you again,
Josh
