Bracket Animation – CSS & JavaScript Text Animation Snippets

You can make some pretty dazzling text effects with basic CSS and a few lines of JavaScript. These effects range from text display animations to 3D rotations or anything else you can imagine. –Bracket Animation – CSS & JavaScript Text Animation Snippets

And in this post I’ve cataloged coolest examples from around the web showcasing what you can do with just a little bit of stylized text and CSS code.

Here’s fairly common text animation technique which I see all the time. It uses brackets with rotating text almost like a rolodex on the page.

This animation mimics the typing carousel effect I mentioned earlier, except this can be made with just CSS. It relies on a custom looping animation that moves from one CSS keyframe to another, each frame displaying a different word or phrase in the rotating text.

I find this effect much subtler and easier to read on a homepage. If you’re looking for some cool text effects for your homepage this would be an excellent choice.
