A responsive, touch-friendly and Retina-ready menu with three layouts for different browser sizes.

VIEW DEMO DOWNLOAD SOURCE

Today we will create a colorful Retina-ready and responsive menu inspired by the colors of the Maliwan manufacturer of the Borderlands game. The menu automatically changes to one of three different layouts depending on the browser window size: a “desktop” inline version, a two columns tablet-optimized version and a mobile version with a menu link to display and hide the navigation for smaller screens. To make the menu fully retina-ready, we will use an icon font so that the icons of the menu won’t get pixelized on resize.
