    I like the site, but I'd personally change the copy. I like when copy is as straight-forward as the design. An example:

    "Young & Hungry crafts thoughtful, tailor-made design solutions for forward-thinking humans."

    • humans is a given
    • I'm never a fan of the word 'solution'. When I hear 'solutions' in that context, it makes me think of IBM.

    Essentially, I'd boil that sentence down to 'Young & Hungry crafts thoughtful designs'.

    And if you look at that sentence and say, well that doesn't make us stand out, then I think you need to re-evaluate what the overall sentence should say. Adding more adjectives doesn't sell your business any better, it just makes the sentence longer.

    However, that being said, I don't know your customers, I don't know your exact goals, and I'm not a copywriter. And I'm just a person on the internet.

      I think "for forward-thinking humans" is actually the best part of that line. The rest is pretty cookie-cutter, but the word "humans" really stands out in that context.

      I'd try to take that same quirkiness and apply it to the first part of the sentence. Maybe something like:

      "Young & Hungry crafts hand-made, unique design solutions for forward-thinking humans."

    Neat, but the logo interrupts the hover and clicking on things. I'd suggest using pointer-events: none;

      i agree—and disagree. Yes, the logo and menu icon interrupts the hover and clicking events on elements on the page. The two elements also get lost once user scrolls down due to overlapping the images and content. I disagree that just implementing

      pointer-events: none;

      is a successful solution. While it does fix the hovering actions, the branding and menu icon still get lost. A simple acknowledgment of contrast—a basic design principle—would be a great solution. Give the header a background...it could be and semi-translucent white, or a solid color. Either way, it would greatly improve the visibility and functionality, as well as eliminate the hovering issues.

    Nice and simple. Seems a little strange that your logo and menu icon stay on top of all content. I'm guessing there was supposed to be a white background on that?

      There was not.

        If not, why? I'm interested to hear if there is a good reason not to, as there are some negative impacts due to the lack of background on the header content. I would suggest thinking about adding some sort of background... it has zero contrast, which leads to loss of visual brand impact as well as the menu icon being virtually invisible in certain instances. It looks sloppy with the logo overlapping awkwardly on the content. Also, the logo—when scrolling down—is quite buggy and multiplies itself when the browser repaints the page.

        Overlapping, loss of legibility
