I should have brought this up a lot sooner, but since you’ve still got a while left before you’re done with your projects, here it goes:
When designing your pages, Laubheimer (https://www.newfangled.com/using-the-fold-ux-asset/) points out that it’s always important to be mindful of what goes into the “fold” of your web page. That is to say, it’s important to know what occupies your users’ screens when they first load your web page.
Laubheimer points out several resources that you can draw on when explaining how important keeping content in the fold is (tl;dr: Important, but not that important), and what should and should not go into the fold. If in doubt, always return to NN’s 10 Usability Heuristics that were brought up in the Dark Design Patterns e-learning session.
