    A few original and different looking designs, here, most of them don’t seem very different or innovative to me. Which doesn’t mean to say of course that the design is bad, just I thought this post would be more based on more creative navigations, things that we haven’t seen much of yet – or something that’s a bit different from the crowd.

    I like the Tommy Design, but that feeds into liking the retro design as a whole. I think my favourite is the metajive one here, simple animation and the look ties in nicely with their brand and logo.

    Thanks for this post, I just had a much better understanding of navigation menu. I have two questions.
    1.What is the difference between navigation menu and categories and how can they be used together on a website?
    2.How do you peg your menu to remain visible to the visitor as he scrolls down a web page? so that without scrolling up the page he can easily make use of the navigation menu at the top of the page.
