    I like it, and I only have two things I'd like to critique on:

    1. I think the background comes off as a bit to strong and distracts me from the text.

    2. It annoys me that the button doesn't sync up in height with the inputs.

    Interesting points, @Teddy Zetterlund . Thank you. It's not too often that someone takes the time to give me some valuable feedback on dribbble, so I really appreciate it.

    The wooden background is looking more and more distracting to me, now that you've pointed it out. The idea behind the wood, is that it's supposed to carry a 'hand-crafted' feel to it. This is from the first iteration of the site which featured a lot of copy about how a custom built , hand crafted website was better for startups.

    However, now that I've refocused the site to reflect more about customer acquisition and retention, (what my visitors care about vs. what I the designer, care about)... I'm going to look at changing the background all together.

    About the signup button, that's something that has always bothered me as well. I'm going to look at changing up the fonts, and perhaps a font switch will allow the button to be a bit smaller and still keep readability.

    Thanks again for your valuable feedback!

    You have a spelling mistake on your homepage. The fourth 'tick' says "Attact users..."

    It should be 'attract'.

    Nice! I think the live design is a lot better, got a few more things though.

    1. Having the logo clickable seems redundant and was actually a bit confusing when I miss-clicked it (try it, the page reloads and the animation confused me and made me think something new happened).

    2. The buttons doesn't have `cursor: pointer`, should probably add that.

    3. There's no retina images ;)
