I saw a post on reddit about how to achieve the header effect on so I decided I would give it a shot in Webflow. I just created the mask (can be done in what ever image/vector editor you use), layered it using z-index, animated the background (which is inside a div with no overflow), then finally I added an outline to the mask just to keep the background from peaking out if a page doesn't respond the perfectly. I hope you guys find this useful! You can get super creative with the background to create all sorts of effects. It doesn't have to just be lettering. Plus, by doing it this way your animation can be responsive to your page/element interactions.
