A hero banner, or hero image, is a large banner image placed prominently on a web page. With the rise in responsive design these kind of banners have become even more popular, because a responsive design allows the banner to be full width and therefore even more prominant than in a non-responsive design.
Often these banners can cover the entire screen of the home page of a site. They can also have content embedded within them, from simple text headlines to input forms. We love hero banners at Webfuel, as they can generate a real impact on visitors from the second they arrive on a website.
