First, we will create our contact form using HTML

<div id="contact">Contact</div>

<div id="contactForm">
  <h1>Keep in touch!</h1>
  <small>I'll get back to you as quickly as possible</small>

  <form action="#">
    <input placeholder="Name" type="text" required />
    <input placeholder="Email" type="email" required />
    <input placeholder="Subject" type="text" required />
    <textarea placeholder="Comment"></textarea>
    <input class="formBtn" type="submit" />
    <input class="formBtn" type="reset" />

As you can see we have created the skeleton for our contact form.


Now it’s time to add some style to our popup contact form

@import "https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway";
* {
  box-sizing: border-box;
body {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  background: #333;
  font-family: Raleway;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  font-size: 11px;
h1 {
  margin: 0;
#contact {
  -webkit-user-select: none; /* Chrome/Safari */
  -moz-user-select: none; /* Firefox */
  -ms-user-select: none; /* IE10+ */
  margin: 4em auto;
  width: 100px;
  height: 30px;
  line-height: 30px;
  background: teal;
  color: white;
  font-weight: 700;
  text-align: center;
  cursor: pointer;
  border: 1px solid white;

#contact:hover {
  background: #666;
#contact:active {
  background: #444;

#contactForm {
  display: none;

  border: 6px solid salmon;
  padding: 2em;
  width: 400px;
  text-align: center;
  background: #fff;
  position: fixed;
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, -50%);

textarea {
  margin: 0.8em auto;
  font-family: inherit;
  text-transform: inherit;
  font-size: inherit;

  display: block;
  width: 280px;
  padding: 0.4em;
textarea {
  height: 80px;
  resize: none;

.formBtn {
  width: 140px;
  display: inline-block;

  background: teal;
  color: #fff;
  font-weight: 100;
  font-size: 1.2em;
  border: none;
  height: 30px;

There, we have styled our form.


Now it’s time to make it functional by using some JQuery.

$(function () {
  // contact form animations
  $("#contact").click(function () {
  $(document).mouseup(function (e) {
    var container = $("#contactForm");

    if (
      !container.is(e.target) && // if the target of the click isn't the container...
      container.has(e.target).length === 0
    ) {
      // ... nor a descendant of the container

There you have it.
