- Mega Menu
If you have a lot of menu to be displayed on your websites, you may need to try having a Mega Menu on your web. This design can arrange a lot of categories to be put on the landing page but without creating a crowded menu bar. So, this type of design will be best used for any industry which has a lot of classifications such as education industry that showcases all the major courses, admission information, student’s result, and a lot more.
Moreover, Mega Menu can help de-clutter, create a sharper sleeker menu bar option and not confuse readers into clicking on the wrong option because of longer, stuffier menu options.
