    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of carousels either. The reason why it existed in the first place was because we had the "above the fold" mentality. This has changed over the years. We accept scrolling down and viewing more content thanks to the way we view websites on mobile. But sadly it has still being overused to this date especially on e-commerce websites.

    There are much more improved carousels that uses purely CSS with a touch of animations to give some life to the carousels.

    Not calling you a terrible designer but just that the article fell short.
