Today I want to show you how to create a fun little typography effect with CSS animations and text shadows. Maybe you know those eerie opening sequences of movie trailers where some text is being faded in on a dark background. After seeing Introducting Briefs (which is not a terror movie trailer but a preview for an interesting app) I got inspired for recreating the effect using CSS.
The idea is to blur text and make it appear with a rotation while animating the space between the letters. This can be achieved in a variety of ways using properties like the new CSS filters, animating padding or margin and more. Here we’ll simply use text shadows and letter-spacing to achieve the desired effect. Since we will need to control each letter, we’ll use Dave Rupert’s Lettering.js to wrap the words and letters into multiple spans.
