20 Great Examples Of Icons In Navigation Design




Navigation design is one of those things you simply cannot overlook. When looking for specific information on a website, a lot of people will look at the main or sub navigation or use the search bar (if present).

When done right, adding visual cues to your main menu can prove very useful in making things just a tad more appealing to visitors. Let’s have a look at some sites that make great use of icons in their navigation menus.

One trend I noticed while looking for sites to include in this post was that a lot of them used monochrome/greyscale icons – subtle but very effective.
