I building a responsive navigation, and I'm trying to get a nice clean simple mobile portrait menu.
In the enclosed illustration, we have a standard nav. The business requirements state that the users first name should be shown once they are logged.
In the mobile view I'd like to use some sort of icon if possible. The trouble is how would you hint to a user if they are logged in or out of the site?
Has anyone come across an instance of this they've solved visually?
I'm thinking just truncate the users name after x number of characters. That seems more obvious from a cognitive perspective. Everyone recognizes their name, and is already an indicator of status.
Any input is appreciated.
