We all are using variety of websites and applications, they all are easily accessible, but what really makes a difference in a website or app, is its navigation style in your "own innovative style". Mostly big brands like Apple, Google and Microsoft have been showcasing their designs to everyone as to set a benchmark for all designers and creatives to follow. Their teams are working very hard to create something easier to use by all, as a bigger picture. Yet is important to know design ethics, that many creatives in the industry follow or copy. There is a huge scope for innovations. And here I am sharing some of those styles which are innovative and creative use of current trends.
Get Inspired, be creative and innovate your own unique styles.
Impressive use of style in expanding and collapsing the menu interaction. As of now its seen there are 7 main items, what if there are to be more ? and instead of clapping it in a rounded corner box, why not a circle ? These questions do jump in my head yet, would be interesting to see similar style as a sharing menu or perhaps a tiny feature like 'more options'.
This navigational style inspired by Windows Mobile navigation, may have seen similar in Skype app, Its neat and also gels well with the new Apple OS11. Although this is now a days simple and seen in many apps,, it would be interesting to see the same in Uber like apps for hiring cabs or perhaps movie apps like imdb.

This Nav is really cool, along with the progress it can shift down with a clean animated bubble. It would be nice to see this for an online magazine or newspaper, adding a bookmark feature along with its progress.
Affective use of bottom and top menu bars are very useful for any app interaction with main menu and the sub categories. Would be interesting to see if the same can be implemented for Hotel menus with different meals.
While this navigational style is interesting making the menu fold into the hamburger button, it may have a drawback on what happens if there are more than 3 main menu items. Good to think over and may be someone comes up with a newer variation for the same.
