Animation Examples of CSS
Animation Examples of CSS

Our mobile browsers continue to get more powerful and better at showing us amazing, beautiful animations. When combined with the layout power of CSS, it’s possible to create some gorgeous work without using any images at all. The result is scalable, quick-loading, and well, impressive to see.Checkout below list of Animation Examples of CSS.

This is a lovely example of combining CSS transitions, SVG graphics and JavaScript to position the hands on a cute Mickey Mouse watch face.

Gorgeous use of the circular port-hole shaped container gives this CSS-animated submarine a lot of charm.

Star Wars inspired AT-AT personnel carrier, drawn using text with the colours cycled in CSS. A funky effect.

This loader uses the changing colours to give the impression of rotating.

CSS can be used to create some amazing 3D effects. Here’s a 3D tardis:

Simple art style and just the right amount of animation give this sleepy bird the illusion of life.

Simple yet very effective use of CSS borders to create a loading-style animation.

The title from the upcoming Star Wars movie created using CSS, HTML and a little JavaScript.

Try out the keys and rotating this 3D synth created using CSS. Amazing work:

A model of our solar system, complete with scaled rotation speed, moons and details on each of the larger planets. The sun is even a live capture of the real thing!

Another solar system, but this time in 3D. Beautiful use of shading.

Press the shutter on this flat camera to see it create a photo using CSS animation.

Press the button to see day transform to night.

A demonstration of how a sequence of images (sprite) can be used to create stop-motion animation, complete with forward and reverse motion.

A subtle, beautiful dodecahedron created and animated entirely with CSS.

There’s so much going on here it’s hard to believe it’s simply HTML and CSS! Rotating animations and multiple, layered movements combine to make it look like this cyclist and his bike are made of jelly. Nice use of BEM in the class naming too!

Combining lots of moving parts can make a simple set of HTML elements seem like a more complex animation, and that’s something this demo does well. See how the two planets interact, while the looping “particles” are just scattered enough to seem random.

Simple colored layers might not seem much, but when they move they can convey loads of character. In this example, a set of semi-transparent HTML paragraph tags are animated, and the resulting stacked animation is hypnotic.

We don’t always need JPGs or PNGs to make beautiful images, and this is another example. One container div and four others is all it takes to make this deliciously watchable little ice-cream-themed loader image. The resulting code is much smaller than an animated GIF would be.

When you combine artistic use of HTML elements with some character-filled animation, this is the result. An amazingly smooth yet busy animation full of fun. Massive respect to Julia Muzafarova for what must have been incredibly fiddly work building all those sets of keyframes. More than a few coffees too!

Bringing together lots of simple HTML elements with a bunch of subtle, fun animations, this sleepy cat has a lot of character. This example uses Sass, and variables to control the animation. Try changing some to see what happens!

Smooth animations can be achieved when using HTML and CSS, especially when we follow some basic principles. This animation keeps the number of elements to a minimum, and great use of transforms.

Quick animations can add a lot of character when combined. In this demo, see how bubbles and splashes are choreographed together to create cute animation with a happy sponge, all without any images.

A series of keyframe animations can tell a story or help people understand what they’re looking at. Here we see open an envelope and get a letter.

A bit of subtle movement can create great feelings of intensity! This loader has a car looking like it’s speeding along, all created with a few elements and CSS animations. With no images this would load fast.
