      I’ve been saying this for the past year or so. Couldn’t agree more and some of these sites from a usability standpoint are a joke. Maybe do some real digging instead of just copying and pasting from other awards sites and lists.

    Some good examples of navigation + many “common” solutions and really bad examples that shouldn’t be posted here. Kevin is right – this is more like copy & paste than real selection of good content worth seeing. There is no value in that and this is not the first time.

    I would be more interested in creative navigation menus with let’s say four or even more navigation levels, because that’s part of my my daily work. I think it’s not very outstanding to create beautiful menus with only one or two navigation levels.

    Echoing the thoughts of others, I tend to feel this is a collection of ‘pretty’ navigation, rather than ‘good’ navigation. There doesn’t seem to be much here in the way of interesting usability or semiotics, instead, it seems to be more about notable graphic design skills, although I admit this is hard to capture with still images in short format.

    Navigation is an area of my design work I am always trying to improve on. I thought this was a great article and there are some really inspiring ideas in the collection you have put together. I really liked the Agence Crac site and how the navigation is at the bottom of the page. I also liked the roll over on the menu bar. I also really liked the Leading Art site and how the navigation is not just in a straight line. Great collection and I look forward to more from yourself.

    Some really good examples of navigation. In my opinion, the more simplistic the navigation the better. The leading art navigation is very creative and interesting, but may confuse visitors. Great list altogether.

    Once again, you’ve out done yourself with these examples. Amazing how quickly someone comes up with better design. I really like Nordic Ruby. I found some other ones on other sites as well (I think ngen was the best one in my search in terms of navigation design).

    Thanks again for your great work!
