    Hey guys I was wondering what the name of the technique they used on the menus on: http://www.gameinformer.com/

    I mean the folded back borders on the menus. If anyone could tell me that would be great! :D

    Cheers!

    If I'm not mistaken, you are implying about how the menu seems to be folding back behind the content section. it's quite simple. It can be called a "curled corner"

    It's actually just a triangular shape just under the solid rectangle that makes the header.

    Here is a tutorial: photoshopandyou.com/tutorials/curled-corner/

    Hope this is helps.

    well, it's not a technique man... it's just a design throw photoshop! and it's depending on the skills of design. you can design a similar nav. bar and then just use it as a background of your menu bar... that's it!

    I think it's javascript. you can also make that type of menu if you have good skills and knowledge.
    thank you.

    Honestly just get to fuck. That did not help what so ever you little spammer.

    and SanchyClub - Thanks man! I was considering just doing it in photoshop as other methods do seem a bit ott complicated!
