Working on an event landing page for a side project. Trying to keep the visuals as neutral as possible so that the event creator can let their own brand shine through more, based on their cover image.
One concern I have is whether the lack of a thin header or logo/title at the very top of the page (as opposed to farther down) makes it seem a little ungrounded and "where am I!?"-ish.

I don't think you need any additional rules, but the line-height on the intro paragraph should be taller. Also the blue lines underneath the twitter handles create some awkward negative space. You might try moving it above the handle to align with the image. Or just removing it altogether. Bummed I'm not in NYC to make this happy hour!
@Chanpory Rith ah, thanks! Made changes on both counts and it looks much better!
For your concern, another thing to consider (whilst acknowledging that I have no idea what this is going to be for, but I can guess) is whether or not you want Columba to be the destination, or you want it to be self-serve. i.e. People go on Columba to discover happenings (a la Meetup), or you simply grab some code from Columba to host it on your own website (a la Gumroad).
If the former, then I'd say definitely have the header at top. If the latter, then I'd put it under personal discretion.
Since you work for Venmo, I can guess that there's going to be some sort of payment integration for events.
But I digress, since that doesn't fall into the realm of visual design... lol.
Oh, and count me in for a NY Design Happy Hour!
Thanks @Deep Shah this actually has nothing to do with Venmo, it's a personal project! Columba is a service to help people create these event pages which is why I'm wondering if I need to really brand it at the header since I want it to feel more like the event/event creator's branded page.
Gotcha! That sounds cool! In that case, I think "Powered by Columba" is fine where it sits right now. Or perhaps it can go in the footer.
