The Squarespace Blog is very simple at first glance. Keeping all the relevant content for the post (or most recent post) front and center. You can slide open a list of past posts, that have nice little hover effects of the images. On the right is the now standard hamburger icon to open up the overall Squarespace global links navigation.
I like the idea of keeping them out of view in general but i’m also torn over it, if it’s important why hide it?
Is it all just for the mobile experience.
If so is it at the cost of the desktop experience, does it really matter?
