Above the Fold in Web Design: Lunch & Learn topic

The considerations of "the fold" are still prevalent in web today despite the change in user behavior and device proliferation. This talk was part of the Lunch & Learn series on 4/29/15 where we discussed:

  • History of the Above the Fold origins
  • The perception that users don't scroll
  • Carousels/sliders as artifacts of the Above the Fold mentality

The embedded presentation unfortunately doesn't show all the cool gifs implemented to relay scrolling. Here are some links to articles that were consulted/cited in making the presentation:
