Background repeat

Oftentimes, when using a large image as a background, we tend to forget to account for the case when the design is viewed on a large screen. That background will repeat by default.

This mostly won’t be visible on a laptop screen, but it can be seen clearly on larger screens.

To avoid that behavior in advance, make sure to reset background-repeat.

.hero {
background-image: url('..');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
