Project Folder Structure:

Before we delve into the code, let’s discuss the project folder structure. To keep things organized, it’s essential to structure your project in a logical manner. Here’s a suggested folder structure for this CSS animation project:

  • index.html
  • style.css


To begin, create an HTML file called index.html. Inside the file, we will set up the basic structure of our animation using semantic HTML elements.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
  <title>Split & Reveal Text</title>
  <!-- Google Fonts -->
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Poppins:wght@700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet" />
  <!-- Stylesheet -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />

  <div class="container">
    <p>How Are You?</p>




In the style.css file, we will define the styling rules for our animation. The CSS code includes the necessary properties to create the desired visual effects. It incorporates customizations such as background colors, font styles, positioning, and transition properties.

* {
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: "Poppins", sans-serif;
body {
  background-color: #0a0a0a;
.container {
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  left: 50%;
  top: 50%;
  height: 14.37em;
  width: 28.12em;
  cursor: pointer;
h1 {
  background-color: #0a0a0a;
  color: #ffffff;
  text-align: center;
  font-size: 9.37em;
  position: absolute;
p {
  color: #ff3c78;
  width: 100%;
  font-size: 2.5em;
  font-weight: 500;
  position: absolute;
  transform: translateY(-50%);
  top: 50%;
  text-align: center;
.container:hover h1:nth-child(2) {
  clip-path: polygon(0 0, 100% 0, 100% 50%, 0 50%);
  transform: translateY(-50px);
  transition: 0.3s;
.container:hover h1:nth-child(3) {
  clip-path: polygon(0 50%, 100% 50%, 100% 100%, 0 100%);
  transform: translateY(50px);
  transition: 0.3s;
