21 Beautiful And Creative Navigation Menus

Share!

Website Navigation Design all comes within the website interface category. It’s crucial to make it easy to use and find for the client. This doesn’t mean it has to be simple though. I have looked at some amazing websites, that have integrated some creative navigation menus designs into their website. They have been original with their designs and made it easy to use and beautiful at the same time.

  1. Very creative menus but they all seem to be in a very web 2.0 style or a very personal style. I wouldn’t dream of putting any of the ideas into place on a clients design unless they we targeting the younger audience and taking an untraditional approach to design. In which case, these menus have spiked a lot of thoughts in my mind of how I could implement similar techiques.

  2. Some nice solutions to navigation. I particularly like MacRabbit and David Hell Mann’s options.

    Thank you for sharing.

  3. They are beautiful but definately not creative. It’s the same layour EVERY theme or website around the world has already. What happened to being creative, using layered alpha channels, not synced buttons or something to make the difference instead of just using a different color palette.

    They are cute, but they are the same as everyone.

    :/

  4. I love the ‘Two24Studios’ navigation menu – simplistic and clean whilst remaining quite striking! Loads of inspiration here that will prove really helpful in the future!

  5. Some really worth creative menus good collection… umm actually liked the stylish (Bluemoon Dueling Piano Bar) something unique and the background used is very amazing

  6. Very nice collection, a few sites I haven’t seen yet. I really enjoyed David Hell Mann’s site.

    We are using a simple hand-rolled jQuery/css nav. if anyone is interested in this technique, let me know. We are happy to share.

  7. Nice menu design. I really like them all. My favourite is Two24 Studios. Thanks for sharing.
    Website design is a creative work. Now web designing is important part in companies.

  8. Wow… some really great looking menus here. I really like the new media menu, but all of them are good. Good for some inspiration for my next website. Thanks for sharing all of these.

  9. Maybe it’s just me, but a lot of these look very standard and just part of the overall site design. Hover, jquery or tab navigation trends.
