It's becoming more popular for websites to hide its navigation off screen, only revealing a menu when you interact with an element.

This week, the meeting point between flat design and skeuomorphism: material design.
There is nothing new under the sun. So spoketh Solomon and/or Shakespeare, depending on who you believe.
Either way, it’s unlikely they were referring to web design, but as we enter into an uncertain future, there’s no denying there’s a strange comfort in nostalgia - Hey, look at hipsters for starters.
Please do not mistake me for some kind digital prognosticator, soothsayer guru, evangelist, swami, samurai or whatever risible term is currently popular in digital marketing circles.
I am but one writer who has spent the last year immersed (and only occasionally floundering) in previously unchartered waters in my first 12 months of writing for Econsultancy.
This isn’t just a list of trends that I’ve noticed during my own research, but also ones discovered by my many venerable colleagues, various friends of the blog and passed on to me by Dan Barker or compiled throughout the year by Chris Lake.
You will no doubt notice that we have a new site design. It’s a completely refreshed and fully responsive experience that should hopefully put the user first.
It’s also a work in progress.
