Pair purchased Cupple. Cupple+Pair become Couple.
Nice one, but I miss something that suggests I can scroll down the page.
Nice work, looks good!
The video is awesome! Love it :)
Nice page but i love the video too!!
This is just... torture. I don't want to see your stairs and table. :P
I landed on the page that suggested me to watch a video, I did. And came here to give you some feedback. After reading some of the comments here I realized I can actually scroll down on the page. So I went back to my browser and did scroll down. So now here's my feedback;
I think the visual language you're using is way too formal for an app that's for couples. I love your style a lot usually, but this for one thing doesn't seem like you. It feels like someone who is not supposed to be designing has given you some strong feedback to make the page parallax and use big background images, and as a result something like this came out. I would love to see "your" take on this page. I would love to see personable fonts, a unique layout, clean iconography maybe. You can still apply your clean style to a more personable page in my opinion.
I guess big background images + floating screenshots don't do it for me. Show me some personality @Brian.
The name change sucks. Just throwing that out there.
I agree 100% with @Kerem here. The video clearly shows one of the most emotional product/app I've ever seen - I mean really, that is an exceptional video promo right there! And I really love the app, But yet the UI clearly doesn't translate the feeling that much.
As for the website itself - for me it is complete jagginess on the scrolling experince.
@Haziq Mir I'm not sure I get what you're saying is torturing you. It's just a shot, with a link to a website. That's a stair rail, and I had to put the macbook on something, I can't make it hover in thin air. I wish I could. :(
I agree with @Kerem and @Samuel, I'm not feeling it. For an app that is so personal, the UI doesn't get me all warm and fuzzy. As a lot of people said before, it isn't clear that you can scroll the page and honestly: your app concept is strong, you don't need to cover it up with the fancy parallax effect and big background images in my opinion.
The video is amazing, the app is great and the thumbkiss function continues to amaze me. Oh and I really prefer the name 'Pair' as well, which I feel is more classy than the predictable/stereotype 'Couple'.
I have to completely agree with @Samuel Couto and @Kerem Suer the landing page honestly doesn't have a "warm" feeling. While the video on another end is outstanding. When I first opened the landing page I immediately felt cold. Basically it doesn't transmit the affection of a love and warm of a relationship.
The logo also doesn't feel any better. I honestly think you could have done a lot better as I can see you have a lot of talent. :) As @Kerem Suer said, your OWN take on this would be highly appreciated.
awesome feedbacks here @Kerem Suer... Thats what dribbble is about... looking for rebound on this from you @Brian Plemons
I have no idea what kinda style you usually apply to your designs so I'm coming in from a bit of a different angle here.
The weirdest thing for me was landing straight on the homepage and having a massive black gap at the bottom. Like some people have said before it doesn't give you any indication that you can scroll.
It reminds me a lot of the new Shopify homepage but I think the difference is that they are seperating the big background images with content which breaks it up quite nice. I don't know how else to put it other than it feels odd paralaxing from one huge high contrast image to another with no break.
Plus the scrolling is really buggy & slow. Each of your images is averaging at about 150kb...some over 200kb. Try imageOptim?
I really like the page. The custom video player with just the pause button is a great touch and something I might have to steal for a project down the road :) The subtle blue on the sub-pages and buttons are so crisp. Big fan.
My only feedback is I wish 'Couple / An app for two' had some type of styling on the header. It just reminds me a lot of a default Twitter bootstrap site/app.
Thumbkiss made me laugh
Thanks @Paul Farino

Yeah there were many designs made for the landing page, I'll have to see what I can share. I did have the sections broken up with a white background, and the big images scrolled behind the content. It was definitely a lot less busy.
My intention on this home page was to still get the feeling of the video as you scroll down the page, to be connected to the story line with the features highlighted, a more personal feel. We worked on getting the scroll very smooth, and it's smooth for me on all devices, I wonder what's causing the "jagginess" for some of you. We'll have to optimize a bit more I think.
I think we'll move to the white backgrounds and the images scrolling behind them, that was my original design that I liked the most. We had to push quick, and the name change...there is a story behind it. Soon.
For re-branding, pushing out a new responsive home page, and juggling input from your team, I'd say this is a huge success! I wouldn't be worried too much about the language as that is something you should be testing anyway to see which is better accepted or converts more. So I salute you sir!
Thanks @Underbelly (via Anthony Lagoon) That means a lot. We had to do it all in record time too. You'd be surprised how much was built/changed in just a few days.
I am amazed. With the app and the landing.
I'd have to agree with the majority of the comments here. The video is great—it hits home as a long time 'Pair' user, but the landing doesn't show the warmth of what the app really offers.
Speaking specifically for the desktop view, unless you are at the right viewing dimensions you either get a huge black bar, or a incredibly busy screen full of images without any visual break.
The sub pages sit much better with me.
