Updated with some of the suggestions made + font change. Should the the "hire us" button be on the left or right? Or should it be something else entirely?

the button kinda gets lost under that big box, it's also behind a light background... I didn't saw it, only after I readed your description I noticed it.
so maybe overthink that!
you want people to hire you, so make the button big and bold.
@Daniel Keller @Justin Edmund Thanks for the feedback! I know the button isn't very bold, but I don't think it's that subtle in proportion to the page. If this were a standalone page I would agree it's missing a visually stronger call to action.
I'd be interested to see a version where the big orange box is white and the hire button is orange, kind of flipping the two? That might make it stand out just a little bit more but you still get to retain the same dimensions?
Much nicer – I think the sizing and padding of the box and type are a little horsey. Agree the button needs something more / different.
Agreed with @Austin Bales... although the adjective "horsey" is hilarious.
One idea: maybe the "hire us" button could be another rectangle directly below the "Meet Curio" rectangle, equal width with squared-off edges, in a different color?
A few ideas to maybe try:
Change the button to something more akin to "Why you should hire us..." and take them to a page that explains why as you guide them through your work. No one's going to click a 'hire us' button based off the statement of intent alone. You need to convince them.
Make the button teal with white type. It'll create a nice visual triangle with the nav to balance the page composition (right now my eye gets pulled down to the teal nav only). More importantly, it'll make the button the primary action so visitors don't have to decide what nav item to choose.
You can probably drop the period in "Meet Curio."
