    I am an Indian guy who lives and work in Singapore. I understand where this is coming from and as Dorman mentioned 'Let’s stop pretending racial boundaries and prejudices don’t exist'.

    But I feel it's not a great way to approach representation by putting people into boxes based on gender, race or heritage.

    The power to let people be people and to have a healthy mix of diversity lies in the hands of Organisation and government. An example of this is in how Singapore as a multi-racial country solves this problem in its public housing.

    ETHNIC INTEGRATION IN NEIGHBOURHOODS

    Since 1989, the racial quota in each Housing and Development Board (HDB) block and estate has been controlled to broadly reflect Singapore’s racial proportion under the Ethnic Integration Policy (EIP).

    The objective is two-fold: To prevent any particular race from congregating in a location giving rise to “enclaves”; and to give residents more opportunities to interact with those from other races as they “go about their daily lives”, said Dr Puthucheary, who is also Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, and Education.

    The policy has largely met its aim, with every neighbourhood here a microcosm of society at large. Not only have residents of all races formed strong neighbourly ties, they have largely accommodated each other’s practices and customs, such as the burning of incense or the holding of wedding celebrations.

    There are other downsides of this but it's a feeling of equality that prevails, there's more understanding and respect for other cultures and habits.

    I know its not straightforward or obvious solutions to this but I am glad people are talking about it.

    The form looks cool but I don't see anything other than that. There must be more coming to the website right?

    I kind of liked the old style. Had more gravitas, the way it was presented.

    I like how simple this is..focusses on content and feels honest. Great use of fonts & colors. Two things I found a little distracting

    1. The scroll section for the case studies seemed a little off
    2. The testimonial section made me feel like I could scroll sideways and the two dots/circles next to play button seemed like I could click them...I tried. Took me a while to figure out that play button lets you scroll. The play button created an expectation that it would play a video of sorts so I did not click it and relate it to the testimonial scroll. I guess just a colored dot would have done the trick.

    My 2 cents

    1. The site failed to load the first few times
    2. The domain name intrigued me...so I was genuinely interested in knowing what this product does.
    3. First scroll animation made me feel like I have gone to the bottom of the page, so I scrolled back up...took a long time and got stuck. Refreshed again.
    4. If this was a long page without any animation...I would have paid attention to the content. I still haven't.
    5. Designs great! But isn't the purpose of a landing page to convert potential users and get them to download - If there is anything getting in the way of making that decision, then it has failed that purpose.
    6. Aesthetic seems to be given more importance here than the goal/purpose of this page.

    That was more than 2 cents...

    Like your writing style, it comes off as honest and humble. I am not a big fan of the main box around the content, I think it would look a lot cleaner and focussed with fewer elements. You could check out the following designers of dribbble who do a great job with floating elements Gene Ross and Barthelemy Chalvet. Hope it helps.
