Four Hidden Navigation Examples You Have to See

The demands on Web designers become greater and more intense by the day. 

As the trend toward minimalism gains dominance in digital design, designers are being forced to adapt. And one of the virtual areas they've been tasked to work with is that of navigational elements.

Website navigation plays a fundamental role in success of digital initiatives and opinions vary on the best way to implement such a capability. 

Navigation is, without question, an essential element to digital/website design, but today's designers must be able to prioritize content without making navigation inaccessible and sacrificing usability in general. 

In order to do that, particularly in the very mobile age we live in today, designers have been opting to hide their navigation (e.g., through the use of hamburger icons/menus) on mobile screens. 

While many claim that website designs with hidden navigation negatively impact UX metrics (reducing discoverabilithy and increasing perceived task difficulty), the truth of the matter is that it's hard not to use them; they're the best of the worst options available. 

Consumers do seem to be catching on however and they're seeing not only more mobile sites but more mobile-friendly elements regardless of their device like those hamburger menus - even on desktops. Check them out:
