A cool illustrated website whose whole thematic is inspired by the ocean, the sea, and… waves.

When you click on it, the menu itself falls down like an animated wave – cool and creative.
A very interesting website design whose menu is actually the main design element on the home page.

Whenever you hover over any option on it, a different animated object appears.

A very fresh website design whose menu is not so special itself rather than how the whole page interacts with it. When you click on an option, the page animates in a very fun to watch way and takes you to the desired place down the road.
A refreshing yellow website design made with cool animations as you hover and click there and there. The short menu on the left impresses with an untraditional position, vertical orientation, but mostly – with the interesting animation that follows once you click on it.
A very cute website portfolio with the artist lying in the middle surrounded by cool doodle illustrations. The interesting thing about this website’s menu is that it is scattered around, written with a marker, and pretty much made as a part of the whole doodle background.
