Iam desiging an header for my college project which the logo is supposed to come in the top left corner.i have tried by using float property in css but it did not make reflection. How can I shift my logo to top left side in the header bar? I tried most of the time but code is not executed.

Solution

Just place your .logo element and your p tag in a div. It will sort itself out automatically.

You also forgot to close the a tag around the button.

Don’t use float or absolute positioning in a layout, unless you know what you’re doing…

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Montserrat+Alternates:ital,wght@0,500;1,400&display=swap')

* {
  box-sizing: border-box;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  background-color: #F5F5F5;
}

li,
a,
button {
  font-family: "Montserrat", sans-serif;
  font-weight: 500;
  font-size: 16px;
  color: #000000;
  text-decoration: none;
}

header {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: space-between;
  align-items: center;
  padding: 30px 10%;
  background: linear-gradient(rgba(165, 246, 144, 0.3) 0%, rgba(158, 249, 216, 0.63) 100%);
  height: 56px;
}

/* p {
  position: absolute;
  width: 584px;
  height: 67px;
  left: 232px;
  top: 25px;
  text-shadow: 0px 4px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
  background: url(pharmapp.png);
  align-items: center;
  font-family: 'Montserrat';
  font-style: italic;
  font-weight: 400;
  font-size: 16px;
  line-height: 34px;
  color: #000000;
} */

.logo {
/*  position: relative;
  float: left;*/
  margin-block-start: 10px;
  background: url(pharmapp.png);
  height: 122px;
/*  left: 20px;
  top: 0px;
  bottom: 40px;*/
}
<header class="header">
  <div>
    <img class="logo" src="img/pharmapp.png" alt="logo">
    <p class="p">Medicines on your Doorstep</p>
  </div>
  <nav class="nav__links">
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Login</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">SignUp</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    </ul>
  </nav>
  <a class="cta" href="#"><button>Contact</button></a>
</header>
