Would have loved to see something less linear - maybe emphasize the curvature of the U, compositionally, to suggest a change of direction without being quite so brutally straightjacketed and blocky. The humanist vibe of the photography and vector illustration clash with the heavy black box minimalism, but i agree with others here that it's a functional palate cleanser.
This is very good advice. And OP, don't worry, this is a much more common problem than you may think! Every UX designer I know struggles with the problem of trying to justify their decisions scientifically, when it sometimes feels more like we're field medics than surgeons in an operating theater...
