Flash websites with unique navigation

Posted in: Uncategorized |

I’ve always been impressed by websites with unique navigation. Of course, the usability must be also taken into a serious consideration. If the design looks great but the visitors spend hours to navigate the site, then the unique navigation only hurts.

Some creative designers offer fresh ideas on how websites should be navigated. Today I’ll show you 5 websites that feature a unique navigation style. All the sites are flash-based with interesting animation and sound effects.

When you browse these Flash sites you make an exciting trip. Not only you see the homepage, you explore it to the fullest. Simply move the mouse cursor and you travel around the site. It’s so exciting and it feels like you are inside of the site.
