The Hamburger Problem

The Hamburger Problem

As we know, many UX designers suggest to not use hamburger menu anymore. The main problem is it lacks of information. So I try to use another solutions, make the menu clearer. How? I use the word “Menu” or/and add arrow icon beside it. More clearer, huh? Not really, people tend to not click it because they don’t see a reason to click it.

Some people argue that “we just have to wait for users to learn the new navigation convention,” but hopefully you can see how the principle of information scent invalidates that argument. Good design doesn’t require years of waiting for the general public to understand and start using a interface convention.
