I currently have the following mockup for a menu of a web application.
I like the left hand side with the main menus and their sub fly out menus. What I'm not sure about is the right hand side. I'd like to show the user's name, the logout button as well as a "drop down" style menu for options that the user can perform: switch their profile and edit their account. A profile just changes the context of the application (different schedule etc).
I would appreciate some comments/suggestions for how to best represent this. I like the 32x32 icons, they're nice and big (not too big or not too small). The only downside is the white space, which is what I try to counter with on the right hand side. But I feel maybe the drop down "Options" isn't ideal.
