This month, we finished up the tiled menu demo that we have been working on this season. The last step was to use some CSS positioning and display properties to create a hover effect over the menu icons. In the process, we answered some questions that had come up during the year, and we experimented with some variations on the styling in order to understand how the menu works.
The original article where I got this demo is at How To Create a Trendy Flat Style Nav Menu in CSS.
