Menu’s, this site included, are often very standard things. A couple of links at the top, some kind of drop down on mobile. I wanted to experiment with something different, and settled on something futuristic. The original idea was something akin to what is pictured in the top-left of https://previews.123rf.com/images/vantuz/vantuz1602/vantuz160200035/51837207-futuristic-user-menu-interface-hud-abstract-background-stock-vector-illustration-.jpg. The circular elements usually slowly rotate and expand on interaction, and I decided to make a simplified version that produce the same effect, but with less clutter.
This version is absolutely horrible for mobile, but otherwise I liked the result. This version also has a debug property that can be set to see what is going on under the hood.
