The Hero image trend in the web design industry has developed so much over the past few years that the vast majority of new designs feature some kind of large introductory photograph. These huge background images have been dubbed hero images, a term that has been adopted from the print industry where page filling images are commonly seen in magazines. Hero images prominently fill the screen to wow the user, often only accompanied by a heading or a sentence and a single call to action such as a sign up form or button links. Today’s roundup showcases 30 sites that fully embrace the hero image, granting the maximum amount of space possible to this design feature and shifting all other content thousands of pixels down the page.
