Smartphone mobile apps have taken the design world by storm. Even most web designers have taken a liking to app design by learning the common dimensions and interface elements of Android and iOS devices. One such example is the sliding drawer menu, also putatively called the hamburger navigation.

While these sliding nav menus are not perfect for every situation, they do provide an exceptional solution for applications with a lot of content. In this gallery I’ve put together 25 examples of stunning hamburger-style menus of all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re designing a new application or just trying to understand the creative process these examples will prove to be quite inspirational.
