What is Navigation First?
Most people are used to going to websites and finding a Responsive multi-level dropdown navigation bar, or even the trendier hamburger menu, as just one of the components that fit neatly into the overall design. Navigation First says, “Bump the rest of the page layout – the most important thing the user needs to see is clear navigation.”
One simple example can be found on MESS HALL (www.mplsmesshall.com) A foodie festival in Minneapolis promo site. I think this site is exceptional in that while the navigation options are super simple they encase it in a full screen panel with foody iconography parallaxing with your mouse movement in the background.
