A switching title effect where a fixed text element changes with an animation depending on the scroll position.
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.

Attention: Highly experimental demo with modern CSS properties in use. The Intersection Observer API is currently not supported in Safari.
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.
