Can You Rotate Text in Webflow?

If you’ve ever wondered whether you can rotate text in Webflow, the answer is a resounding yes! Webflow allows you to add dynamic and eye-catching effects to your website, including rotating text. In this tutorial, we will explore how to achieve this effect using HTML and CSS in Webflow.

Rotating Text with CSS

To rotate text in Webflow, we can utilize CSS transforms. Transforms allow us to modify the shape, size, and position of elements on a webpage. In our case, we will use the transform: rotate() property to achieve the desired rotation effect.

To apply a rotation effect to a specific element, such as a heading or paragraph, we need to identify it using a class or ID selector. Let’s say we have a heading element with the class name “rotate-heading”. We can apply the rotation effect by adding the following CSS code:

    .rotate-heading {
        transform: rotate(45deg);

The rotate() function accepts an angle value as its parameter. In this example, we have set it to 45 degrees. You can experiment with different angles to achieve your desired effect.

Bold and Underlined Text

If you want to emphasize certain words within your rotated text, you can use HTML styling elements such as for bold and for underline. For example:

<h2 class="rotate-heading">
    <b>Hello</b>, <u>Webflow</u>!<br>
    Welcome to the world of rotating text.

This will make the word “Hello” bold and the word “Webflow” underlined within the rotated heading text. Feel free to experiment with different combinations to create visually engaging effects.

Creating Lists

If you want to incorporate lists within your rotated text, you can use HTML list elements like


  • . For example:

    <h2 class="rotate-heading">
            <li>Rotating text</li>
            <li>Custom animations</li>
            <li>Eye-catching effects</li>

    This example demonstrates a rotated heading with a list of features. Each feature is displayed as a list item using the

  • tag. You can add or remove items as needed to suit your requirements.


    In conclusion, Webflow allows you to rotate text on your website, giving you the freedom to create unique and visually appealing designs. By utilizing CSS transforms and HTML styling elements like bold, underline, lists, and subheaders, you can enhance your rotated text further. Experiment with different rotation angles and styling options to find the perfect combination for your website’s aesthetics.
