Anitype asks a simple question: what if letters could move?

For thousands of years, letters have sat static on the page, but thanks to today’s modern devices, they could do a lot more — they could dance and jump and wriggle their way across the screen. And you could help decide how they move.

Anitype invites you to animate letters with JavaScript, so we can begin to see what an animated typeface might look like on the web.

Anitype invites you to animate letters with JavaScript. To keep cohesion between characters, we’ve structured the development process. First, we provide point data for where your character should be at the end of your animation. Second, you have one second to animate your character, and anything longer will be cut short. Third, we encourage you to use stroke, fill, opacity, etc.) are exposed we encourage these transformation parameters like translate, rotate, scale, and vertices instead of style parameters like linewidth, stroke, fill, and opacity. Lastly, minified submissions are not permitted. Please submit only human-readable code.
