The story was... can I make a pure CSS menu, and a HTML5/ CSS3 template. End result must be a clean, modern User Interface (UI).
The solution started with UX research for what links should be on the menu. Then many different wireframes were designed (using Axure and Sketch), and brainstorining sessions were noted on what elements and components were needed for the template or homepage (this portion takes time to provide wireframes for a good user experience). The result is a clean, modern, user-friendly template that had a pure CSS menu. The brainstorming was appreciated and the template has purpose and clarity.
