    • The animations/copy pairings under "How does it work?" feel super constrained - like Jan said, up the vertical padding there and let them breathe.
    • (Personal opinion) I think everything looks better with a system-font stack.
    • I think the font weight you're using for the headers could be reduced by 100 or 200. Instead of relying on the weight to differentiate the title from the rest of the copy, try playing with opacity or color. To me, this looks better than the heavy bold you're using.
    • The footer feels a little out of place. Like it was just thrown in there from a previous design. Maybe the call to action directly above the footer could incorporate the footer content to the left of the resting dog - you'd obviously need to adjust the vertical padding on that as well to accommodate.

      Agree with the vertical padding of content areas, though disagree with the menu and font. I like the bold font as differentiator for the menu, and the font's elegant, however you definitely need more line-height for your headings. Well, for the footer/last call to action I like that's an attention grabber, but the text is too unreadable contrast wise.

        hey, T. F. (sorry don't know your name)

        oh, this typography makes me crazy. I don't see those nuances. Will go to our freelance designer to ask (he is my friend, working in the same office).

      hey, Joshua! thanks for your thoughts!

      we'll add more space, 100% agree

      don't know, probably we will keep fonts as it's for now

      okay, that's true. We took footer from the old site, to save time on development. will take another look on it.

      thank you again for your feedback. Our front-end develope will have many new tasks in this sprint.
