How To Create A Scroll Down Animation Icon Using CSS with SVG

So you have seen on websites that typically have a full-screen header with an indicator to scroll down to view the rest/more of the content. We’re going to show a very nice and clean way to represent this feature. In today’s tutorial, we have a scroll down icon created as an SVG using just HTML & CSS and it looks pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves.

Here is a CodePen of what we are going to be creating.

So let’s being:-


<div class="scrolldown-wrapper">
	<div class="scrolldown">
		<svg height="30" width="10">
			<circle class="scrolldown-p1" cx="5" cy="15" r="2" />
			<circle class="scrolldown-p2" cx="5" cy="15" r="2" />


body {
  background: #000;

/* Scroll Down */

.scrolldown-wrapper {
	left: 50%;
	position: absolute;
	text-align: center;
	bottom: 0;
	transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
.scrolldown {
	border: 2px solid #FFFFFF;
	border-radius: 30px;
	height: 46px;
	margin: 0 auto 8px;
	text-align: center;
	width: 30px;

.scrolldown-p2 {
	animation-duration: 1.5s;
	animation-name: scrolldown;
	animation-iteration-count: infinite;
	fill: #FFFFFF;
.scrolldown-p2 {
	animation-delay: .75s;

@keyframes scrolldown {
	0% {
		opacity: 0;
		transform: translate(0, -8px);
	50% {
		opacity: 1;
		transform: translate(0, 0);
	100% {
		opacity: 0;
		transform: translate(0, 8px);

If you want to adjust the positioning of the icon, simply edit the .scrolldown-wrapper class and adjust the bottom position (e.g. changing bottom: 10%; will move the icon 10% of the viewport height from the bottom).

You can also adjust the speed of the animation by adjusting either .scrolldown-p1 or .scrolldown-p2 classes.

Pretty simple and lightweight right?
