Best Fast Typography Templates Stomp Videos

Since Apple’s famous “Don’t Blink” video dropped four years ago, fast typography continues to grab the attention of audiences around the world, with brands such as Samsung and Honda adopting the stomp style in recent marketing campaigns. 

For designers and content creators seeking visually engaging and energetic video trends in 2020, fast typography offers a great way of speedily sharing a lot of information.

Get started with typography animation and make your own stomp video with fast typography templates from Envato Elements.

What Is Fast Typography?

The functionality behind this type of animation and design draws on the learnings of Evelyn Wood, an American educator and businessperson who popularized the term "speed reading", as well as building the systems that encouraged it.

Today, however, a range of popular software platforms and apps – such as Spritz and Spreeder – offer a different approach to speed reading by applying a variation of a method called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP). 

The basic concept is to display text word-by-word, or by in small groups of words, one after the other. This way you can speed up the reading process by increasing the average rate of words-per-minute that are displayed on the screen.

What Are The Advantages of Animated Typography?

In an era where we’re constantly overwhelmed by the amount of information being thrown at us, the popularity of templates that help deliver messages in fast, visually engaging ways has risen.

As a result, video is widely recognized as the ideal medium to deliver this type of content, which is why it’s no surprise that the world’s appetite for fast typography templates has grown.
