I'm re-rethinking my website and I would like to know what's the best for users.
- A navigation centered on the page + a centered logo
- A navigation on the left or right with a logo on the opposite (like most of the website we find
I was thinking about #1 could be original, but I'm not sure that could work with a Portfolio, because a centered logo is acting to seperate two differents sections the navigation like work on the left and social stuffs on the right. But I could also put the logo centered on top and navigation at the bottom and centered... It look like restaurants no?
Almost everyone use #2 on the portfolio...
I thought about a diagonal navigation, but I think it's a bit weird and hard to do. I changed my mind to maybe make like choice #4 in image bellow for "fixed" navigation. I think I will keep choice #3 for "normal" navigation, but it's not matching my idea for "fixed" navigation.
Another concern I have about navigation and probably about the centered logo seperating two sections is my nav organization. That's the section I have; Home, About, Work, Photography, Contact and maybe Blog. I don't really know if I should keep this order or put About section before Contact.
Also, my work section (my website will be single page) will have a link to see archive (more works), so I don't know if my Portfolio link in my navigation should be linked to the id or to the other page (archive)?
EDIT : I re-thought about centered logo and I think it's a bad idea if you want to add more section. It will be unbalanced like 2 nav on the left and 3 on the right. So I will keep a normal navigation, but will try to design it well.
