Scrolling Letters Animation
Recently we’ve stumbled upon a really nice effect on Akademi’s website: the main title of the page moves along as one scrolls down and changes depending on the section that is currently in the viewport. We thought this would be an awesome effect to recreate and play with different animations for the text as it changes. For detecting when a certain section is entered, we use the Intersection Observer API. Note that the API is currently not supported in Safari.
The demo is kindly sponsored by monday.com: The visual project management tool built for designers.
If you would like to sponsor one of our demos, find out more here.
For the demos, we’ve created a layout that starts with some intro text and another text element that will scroll along. Once that element reaches the next section, it will switch to a new title.
In the first demo shuffles the letters in a sequencial way and the second one shows some random characters.
We hope you enjoy the demos and find them inspirational.
