When you first sit down to design a website you need to consider many of the same interface areas. Header section, logo, nav links, sidebar, maybe even a large footer area. But it’s commonly true that your navigation is almost instinctively located directly near the heading. This gives your visitors direct access to pages instead of scrolling down to find related links.
While this trend isn’t exclusive to web design it does bring up some valid points. You must consider how your navigation menu is displayed and how many links are required. In the gallery below I’ve put together an inspirational collection of website headers with top navigation bars. Use these ideas to your advantage on any new web project or startup idea. Similarly if you have navigation bar designs feel free to share in the post discussion area below.
