Fix It or Stick It : Headers in Website Development
Headers were previously seen as narrow strips in the top parts of the websites that contained a logo, a call to action, and contact information. However, today with modern design, the whole space above the fold of the homepage is considered a header. Being in a strategic place of importance, it acts as a kind of invitation for users to see what the website offers in the very first few seconds!
Horizontal Scrolling for Websites: Miracle or Disaster?
There was a time in the early 2005s when horizontal scroll was considered a complete taboo. This was because the whole UX of sideways scrolling was confusing to the user and it just didn't comply with conventional web design standards. Also, factor in that vertical websites are considered to be simpler to implement and more efficient. Therefore, it's only fitting that most websites prefer to go for it and not a horizontal one. However, as with most tech, many elements make a comeback, stay strong for a few years and then disappear into the abyss only to reappear after a few years.

Why do you need to have an About Us page on your website
A website is not only a sales channel but also a brand’s digital identity and one of the most important ones too!

Your Brand Story i.e., an About Us page! On a subconscious level, when visitors read about YOU, they start separating you from a brand to an actual entity! One they can believe in and trust!
