Almost all of us must have heard that ‘the first impression is the last impression’. The profile card carries the most important details we should know about a person at the very first instant. A better impression attracts more traffic. So to engage more audience in a website it is very important to concentrate on designing every small part of it. Profile cards being one of them.

In this article, we will learn how to create a Profile Card Hover Effect using CSS.


  • At first, we create the basic HTML template (index.html) to insert the image and profile.
  • We have an HTML div with a “card” class. Inside the div, we have an image with class “img-box” and the profile name and designation of the account holder with class “info”.
  • This profile card image is used. 
  • We include the “style.css” in “index.html” file that contains all the CSS styles.
  • We need to import the following google font URL in our CSS file for font-family: ‘Merriweather’, serif;
@import url("");

Example: The image will move up and the profile name with designation will show up. There is also a button to contact the user.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Profile Card</title>
    <meta name="viewport"
          content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="card">
        <div class="img-box">
            <img src=
                alt="profile pic">
        <div class="info">
            <h2>Profile Card</h2>
            <p>Web Designer | Influencer</p>
            <button>Contact Me</button>

CSS code: The following CSS code (style.css) will bring the hover effect to this profile card. The following code is used in the above HTML file


/* Filename:style.css */
* {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    box-sizing: border-box;
body {
    height: 100vh;
    background: rgb(11, 80, 136);
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;

    right: 10px;
    left: 10px;
    background-color: white;
    transition: 0.5s;
    z-index: 2;
/* The image dimensions changes on hover and the
   underlaying information shows up*/
.card:hover .img-box {
    top: 10px;
    bottom: 125px;
    right: 10px;
    left: 10px;
/* Image radius changes on hover*/
.card:hover img {
    border-radius: 10px;
/* The image */
img {
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    object-fit: cover;
/* Contains the name, designation and a button to contact */
.info {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 40px;
    right: 10px;
    left: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    height: 80px;
/* Style the name*/
h2 {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: rgb(51, 50, 50);
/* Style the paragraph which contains the designation */
p {
    color: rgb(197, 74, 111);
/* The button to contact */
button {
    position: absolute;
    background-color: rgb(11, 80, 136);
    border: none;
    border-radius: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    left: 75px;
    margin: 8px;
    font-size: 20px;
    padding: 10px 15px;
    color: wheat;
