In web development, creating an appealing and functional footer is crucial for a polished user experience. In this article, we’ll explore how to build a sleek footer component using Tailwind CSS and React Icons. We’ll break down the code step by step and explain the key components involved.


Before diving into the code, make sure you have the following set up:

Getting Started

Let’s start by creating a functional React component for our footer. Here’s the code:

import {
} from "react-icons/fa6";

const Footer = () => {
  const socialLinks = [
    { label: "YouTube", icon: FaYoutube },
    { label: "Instagram", icon: FaInstagram },
    { label: "Twitter", icon: FaXTwitter },
    { label: "Dribbble", icon: FaDribbble },

  const links = [
      { label: "Company", key: "header-1" },
      { label: "About us", key: "item-1-1" },
      { label: "Blog", key: "item-1-2" },
      { label: "Contact us", key: "item-1-3" },
      { label: "Pricing", key: "item-1-4" },
      { label: "Testimonials", key: "item-1-5" },
      { label: "Support", key: "header-2" },
      { label: "Help center", key: "item-2-1" },
      { label: "Terms of service", key: "item-2-2" },
      { label: "Legal", key: "item-2-3" },
      { label: "Privacy policy", key: "item-2-4" },
      { label: "Status", key: "item-2-5" },

  return (
    <div className="app min-h-screen flex items-end justify-center font-poppins">
      <div className="py-16 grid lg:grid-cols-3 md:grid-cols-2 sm:grid-cols-2 grid-cols-1 bg-green-800 text-white w-full p-4 relative">
        <div className="  ">
          <div className="footer-img flex items-center">
              className="w-16 h-auto"
            <span className="text-3xl font-bold pl-2 text-white">
              Company name
          <div className="infos text-gray-400">
            <span>Copyright © 2020 Nexcent ltd.</span>
            <span>All rights reserved</span>
          <div className="footer-icons flex items-center space-x-3">
            {, index) => {
              const Icon = socialLink.icon;
              return (
                  className="w-14 h-14 p-2 rounded-full bg-green-700 hover:bg-white hover:text-green-700 cursor-pointer"
        <div className="mx-2 grid w-full py-5 sm:py-0 grid-cols-2 ">
          {, index) => {
            return (
              <ul className={`col col-${index + 1}`} key={`col-${index}`}>
                {, index) => {
                  return (
                      className={`text-gray-400 cursor-pointer ${
                        link.key === "header-1" || link.key === "header-2"
                          ? "text-2xl text-white"
                          : ""
        <div className="footer-form flex flex-col  ">
          <label className="text-lg font-semibold text-white">
            Stay up to date
            placeholder="Subscribe to our email"
            className="mt-2 w-full border-none rounded-lg py-3 px-6"

export default Footer;

Now import Footer component to App.js file

import Footer from "@/Components/Footer";

const page = () => {
  return (
      <Footer />
      {/* other component here */}

export default page;


Let’s break down the key components of our footer component:

  1. Social Media Icons: We import social media icons from react-icons/fa6 and render them as clickable icons.

  2. Footer Links: We organize the footer links into two columns, each containing links with labels like “About us,” “Blog,” and more. These links are mapped and displayed dynamically.

  3. Company Info: We display the company logo, name, and copyright information.

  4. Email Subscription: An input field for users to subscribe to the newsletter.

Styling with Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS classes are used extensively to style the footer. Classes like text-white, bg-green-800, rounded-full, and others are applied to various elements for a clean and responsive design.
