Just a quick note to say that I’ve gathered together a navigation design showcase with 70+ examples. I’ve specifically avoided including (too many) examples where the navigation is overly creative as I figured these wouldn’t be as useful to a wider audience.
Still, I think there’s plenty of variety across the designs, although horizontal navigation features far more prominently over vertical. That’s not intentional — it just worked out like that.
Anyway, I’m sure I’ve missed out tons of great examples. So, send them my way and I’ll be sure to add them in the future.
