This looks cool, it's a neat idea to socialise trading. I have some feedback from the perspective of not knowing anything about Pelican Trading before seeing this:
It's not immediately obvious from either your tagline or your sub-title that you're talking about stock market / crypto trading. My initial impression was of a Shopify / Etsy style marketplace.
Some subtle chart imagery in the page header would help provide some additional visual communication.
As a means of comparison, Acorns (a vaguely similar app) leaves me with no questions as to the purpose of the app.
The video was effective in communicating the app's purpose.
I feel like the iPhone X frames are a little visually "heavy" and a gray silhouette of the X might make the mockups themselves pop a little more. The repeated layouts with 4 mockups tends to make the mockups look very same-y and I tend not to focus on an individual screenshot.
There's a lot going on and a ton of screenshots before I'm 100% clear on what I'm looking at. I actually feel like the "waterfall" layouts from the old site are more effective in communicating the app's purpose.
I don't see why, it uses CSS filter: blur(20px) which has decent support aside from IE (of course): https://caniuse.com/#feat=css-filters

Here is my basic example using material-design-style form fields: https://codepen.io/lenymo/full/qVpeOz/
Thanks Mark, wow those are awesome I hadn't dug right in to v4 - that is some very neat Sass. To be honest I generally include bootstrap.css on its own (compiled via a separate Sass build process). I did this previously because I found the v3 Sass build process took a fair while considering I rarely changed it.
I haven't used v4 in production due to old browser support requirements (yes we have those kinds of clients) but I did find the grid to be highly awesome so I've used that in isolation in my personal projects.
Cheers for the reply!
Awesome site, I love seeing 3D on the web. Maybe the word "Forestry" on the processing plant would be handy? I didn't initially realise it was the Forestry logo on the side.
It's one of my least favourite things when a graphic designer goes to town on an email signature design and I'm asked to build it while trying to explain the challenges of doing anything remotely complex using Outlook's email signature system.
Simple = better.
