The sans-serif font up top is in all caps, but due to it’s small size and faded light grey color it exudes elegance. Furthermore, the items are actually doubled in the hero area making the main menu less important in the overall structure of the site. 3. CHEF S Great navigation menu: CHEF S CHEF S’ menu is hidden away in the upper-right corner, but when you click it the navigation expands across the entire screen. This has an in-your-face impact (the bold color doesn’t hurt either) that is balanced by a semi-opaque background and lovely sans-serif font. 4. Edinburgh Zoo Great navigation menu: Edinburgh ZooEdinburgh Zoo’s website is an example of how you should structure a navigation that requires loads of submenus. We start from the top with an all-caps, sans-serif font that sits on top of a skewed beige background and features the less important menu items. Underneath we have a simple menu that uses a serif font that’s separated into key categories. On hover, we can see each of these expand into a sleek looking drop-down. A+ all around. 5. Scotch & Soda Great navigation menu: Scotch and SodaCan you guess, just by looking at this main menu (and without reading any of the menu items) what this website’s all about? Yep, it’s a fashion website. This is a classic example that’s still in style and very much used throughout upscale fashion. It uses a serif, all caps font, generous proportions and adequate spacing. The contrast is set to special leads max: white on black. All these elements make this niche very easy to recognize, before you’ve even explored the site. 6. Draught Master Great navigation menu: Draught MasterDraught Master has an interesting approach to its navigation system. You don’t actually see the menu items until you hover over them. While this isn’t optimal for most sites, it works great for them. I actually went through each and everyone of them just so I could experience the entire site. It’s enticing. It draws you in. Again, this may not work everywhere, but Draught Master pulled it off. 7. Hyperakt Great navigation menu: HyperaktThis is a very app-inspired navigation system. It’s hidden under a menu icon in the top right of the screen and, upon clicking, it expands to the right of it. It’s beautiful in every way because it follow the basic guidelines of every menu: clear font, great contrast, adequate spacing, easy to use. Not everyone is going to love the fact that it’s hidden, but we can let that slide because of its appearance.
