10 awesome CSS Hamburger Menus

Originally published at

Responsive web design has long been standard on the web. Almost every website has a navigation menu, which is often realized by a hamburger menu. A collection of the best CSS hamburger menus (+ icons & animations) can be found here!

In mobile navigation, i.e. on the tablet or smartphone, the navigation menu is very often hidden for space reasons and only visible by clicking on the hamburger menu. There is endless scope for design possibilities here. Some are programmed with pure CSS without JavaScript and some with CSS and JavaScript - there is something for everyone.

A menu of mostly 2-3 layers has established itself - just like a hamburger (bun, patty, bun), which reveals all menu items in an overlay by a click. Individual strokes can be rotated to an X, disappear or whiz around wildly. Endless possibilities! I have compiled the best ones for you here - let yourself be inspired.
