I like the sage leaves used in this design, that’s a nice way to tie that in and use a realistic looking element like that. I also like the various icons used on the home page. Using the iMac to display the websites in is a bit tired but they are consistent with it.

    Though it sucks that overlapping leaves do scroll.

    Maybe a little, but I’d rather have them scroll than stay static and cover up content. It’s good usability. I like it.

  • Thanks for the mention, guys. Always open to feedback from fellow designers.

  • Yeah, it’s a little weird that only a part of the leaves scroll. I think it would be best to scroll the entire background with it (i. e. not be fixed).
