people of dribbble, I'm redesigning my site and looking to create a unique, simple interface design. I want my nav to be just these icons: no hover state, no text, just an contextual experience for the user to learn, sort of trial-and-error. What are your thoughts? Can you guess what page each icon represents?

I'm gonna guess that the (awesome) little pipe is your "About" page, the anchor is your Work and the paper clip is some kind of "Links" page?
I'll divulge after a few more guesses. ;)
Oh man – love they pipe Matt :D
Pipe - about
anchor - home
paper clip - work
Cory, Andrew, I figured the pipe would be obvious: its the about or info page. The anchor is work or portfolio. The paper clip is the blog.
This makes you look like a sailor who loves filing papers.
I got pipe = profile, paperclip = links. Couldn't get anchor. Just giving feedback, I know you said trial-error was your intention.
anchor was supposed to walk a fine line of literal: holding down who I am, my work vs. figurative: it just looks cool, simple representation outside general convention.
i love the pipe
Wow. Fantastic work. I honestly thought the paperclip represented links as well, but oh boy, this is so amazing and original.
what if the pipe fit the uniform line weight of the anchor & paperclip though? i like it, regardless.
Love the pipe. Classy!
also should've mentioned this is 100% scale
What does it look like without the stroke?
Pipe is spot on. I thought the anchor was "links" (aka: html anchor tags). Thought paper clip was "work." Wondered why you had links before your own content. Also, thought that was an old school ('97) link concept. The style, however, is fantastic.
