34 Inspiring & Creative Sidebar Menu Designs

Vertical menus, or sidebar menus have become very popular. I believe it's because of smart phones, and their UI. Since almost everyone has one, it brings familiarity to the design.

These sidebar menu designs are some of the most creative I've seen so far. The color, icon and font choices are so perfect. I hope these menu designs will inspire you to create your very own menus.

Some of these designs include a .PSD file, so you can easily see how the designer created those specific menus, and use it in your web design.
