50 Beautiful And User-Friendly Navigation Menus by Smashing Magazine

Navigation menus are one of the most crucial component on your site – without good design and placement or the total lack thereof, new visitors will find it a challenge to figure out a way to browse through your content. Your site can have a load of goodies, freebies and etc to offer, but without proper linking and prompting, visitors will leave soon after they get frustrated with their inability to freely navigate around the site. I wouldn’t say mine is the best – it still has a lot of room for improvement. At least it’s a better version of the original menu that I designed alongside with the current theme.

Matt Cronin shared a compiled list of 50 beautiful and user-friendly navigation menus on Smashing Magazine recently. This is one of the best compilations of menus I’ve ever seen – it covers w ide range of themes, from water coloured to hand-drawn art, from sleek Web 2.0 to retro-looking ones. It is interesting to see how designers out there design their navigation menus, and many of the sites listed on that page have more than just awesome navigation menus for you to drool over. They have interesting and inpsiring designs that are waiting to be discovered :) that’s killing two birds (or more!) with one stone.

Your name is required. Why?

  • So that I can address you personally (which I'm more than happy to do).
  • Everyone loves their name to be called, right? Nobody wants to be referred to as 'a certain someone' or Mr X (X-Men members aside).
  • If your post too much spam, your name will be imprinted on a personalised voodoo doll, completely free of charge. I'm just joking!

Your email is needed. Why?

  • Your email is, and will, never be given out to any third party under any conditions (except for people sneaking up behind me when I'm on WP admin).
  • So that I can contact you personally in case of certain issues that I wish to address personally.
  • If you post too much spam, I'll email the same spam you've posted 10 times back to you, completely free of charge.

You can always leave a personal URL behind

  • It can be anything - most people put their blog URL, their facebook page, their Twitter URL, their MySpace or etc.
  • I give love back by saying NO to no-follow. All of your webbie links are dofollows instead.

Twitter. Twitter. Twitter.

  • What is Twitter?: Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 bytes in length.
  • What is my Twitter ID?: To get a Twitter ID, you simply have to sign up for an account at Twitter.com. Your ID will be in the format of your profile's URL - http://twitter.com/[userid].

Hello Easter Egg hunter! You've discovered the magic of the Konami Code!

Yea. You probably know what the Konami code is before getting to this page. So now what? Here is a randomised YouTube video on my favourites list... which includes Rickroll, if you're luck enough to get it.

You are currently watching X Factor - Summertime by Leona Lewis. Loving it? You can even watch the video in its full screen glory :)
