I’m using the twenty twelve theme and I’m wondering if it’s possible to use a personalized navigation menu (something like this: http://graphicriver.net/item/vintage-web-elements/1315158?sso?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=jellygraphics) and how I can do it.
I already searched a way to use custom images on menu items instead of the regular wordpress menu, but since I don’t have any experience with WordPress, I’m asking here for some help.
Likely, but before you make any modifications, you need to create a Child Theme
This is not WP specific, the only thing WP specific is that you have to make adjustments to a child theme.
All the web elements there, not just the menu, could be used in TwentyTwelve or any other themes, it’s just a matter of CSS work.
And since TwentyTwelve is reponsive and mobile first, this makes it VERY difficult to customize the look of nav menu ( it’s doable but very difficult ) not even to mention that it has IE specific CSS for menu thing.
Thank you both for your answers.
I know this might sound like a strange question, but I don’t have much experience on this and I decided to use this theme because it has many options to work with (I found out it was harder to work with a premium theme, I couldn’t get to what I want to achieve with the website).
My goal was to customize the website through a child theme, but using this kind of elements.
Paulwpxp, do you suggest other theme so I can get better results with customizing the website?
You have to make the decision first, if you want a fixed width website or a responsive one. A fixed width one is not as difficult to work with compared to a responsive one, but people would prefer a responsive one these days.

It’s hard to say which theme is better or easier to work with than others, but I would go with a theme that’s built for customizing like _S theme
