Today I'm going to give you a quick walk-through of designing a simple banner in Boxy SVG and animating on CodePen with GSAP.

It will be mostly review of things we learned in the previous 6 chapters of SVG Animation with GreenSock, but as always, there are a few new treats thrown in along the way.

Even if you only know the GSAP basics, this video will inspire you to dive into SVG animations!


Topic Review

  • Creating and animating an <ellipse>
  • Using custom fonts
  • Breaking apart text
  • Grouping
  • Animating transforms
  • Setting up our SVG and GSAP code in CodePen


My goal in building this lesson is to inspire you make something simple like this on your own. It doesn't have to take hours. You should be able to have something working in 30 minutes or so. 

You can code along with this starter file.
