Multiple text transformation options in Kittl. With a sample of angle alignment on a vintage tattoo logo design.

A good font will only get you so far in typography projects, T-shirt, and logo design. Your letters need to look interesting and legible at the same time to make them stand out. Creating unique animation, adding shadows, or making the text more colorful are great ways to transform your logo.

Aesthetics are everything, whether you’re creating a clean app design, writing an article, or making a logo. The right effect will elevate your lettering’s animation and design to new heights and impress users or site visitors. And it doesn’t take long to mix the best effects and showcase your artistic flair for animations and design chops.

Kittl is the app that will help you transition from plain text ideas to colorful and vivid letterings that breathe life into your message.

Make Transformation Text Effects in Three Easy Steps

If you want to transform simple characters into a unique design or animated text, Kittl has an easy three-step process to follow.

Add waves to your text easier than ever

Kittl enables designers to modify their text with a single click. For example, you’re one mouse click away from giving your text a stunning wave effect without morphing the new decoration. It’s easier than using Adobe Illustrator, meaning you can make a more precise transition. Waves make almost any animation unique and will help integrate your words into various templates.

Leverage multiple transformation options

One of the best things about Kittl’s online editor is the amount of details you can add to letters. Unlike other tools, Kittl lets you stack text transformations. You can shape the path and handles without losing previously added effects.

This lets you use different light and gradient options, capitalize a specific letter or word and apply various other artistic changes to add depth to your content.

Access a variety of pre-made templates

You don’t need to be an experienced designer or artist to get inspired by Kittl. You can take your inspiration from our massive template library. Scroll through the options to find the best line, wave, or angle transformation. Pick something as your foundation, or feel free to build unique characters from scratch. Work fast in your browser, and rest assured that the app will do most of the heavy lifting.

Frequently Asked Questions About T-Shirt Designs

How do I create text effects?

Making text effects in Kittl is easy. First, type in text or copy-paste your message into the editor. Click on the text and apply the desired effects from the menu on the right side of the screen. Assign new variables to the text settings, change the color, and select unique effects to transform the text as needed.

How do I make a text have a 3D effect?

The quickest way to make 3D lettering is to add shadows. This effect gives the perception of depth and can make any text appear three-dimensional. This probably makes drop shadows of the most crucial text effects to add to your design, whether or not you want to create an animation.

Can I use my own fonts in Kittl?

Although Kittl has a premium font library, you can import your designs into the app’s collection. You need TTF and OTF files to add new fonts for your new animation or typography project. And with the app’s user-friendly interface, you can quickly practice your transition design skills, hone your eye for detail, and learn to personalize new effects.
