Way back in the early eighties, Xerox designer Norm Cox created the Hamburger icon with a simple purpose in mind: To point toward a list inside the Xerox Star system. It did not have too many takers and appeared randomly on websites till the dramatic and ongoing rise of smartphones prompted designers to bring it back from the dead.
As many menu items as possible needed to be accommodated (squeezed, rather) as the mobile world was gravitating towards smaller screens. We are a top-rung Web designing company in Mumbai and we bring out such functional changes and additions with regularity. The hamburger menu soon became recognised as the one for navigation consolidation and became a common feature on website layouts. Responsive design further accentuated the usefulness of the hamburger menu and gave a clean and completely uncluttered look to the layouts.
Due to the hamburger menu, designers were able to make the most of the limited space they had at their disposal. This versatile menu displayed navigational selections and headings only users clicked on the symbol, thus keeping it discreet and mostly invisible at the top left or right side of a desktop or mobile site.
As a Web development company in Mumbai engaged in continuous upgrading of website technology, we have incorporated the hamburger menu for our clients to enhance its functionality and look. Designers love the menu as it not only provides great functions but remains almost invisible too. It has promoted minimalism to the hilt in terms of functionality and design.
It scales down the importance of other elements thus allowing complete focus on the important value proposition of the site. We are a highly creative digital marketing company in Mumbai and we excel in crafting delightfully impressive websites.
