I think you’re doing yourself a disservice with the header background image – the pencil has a chewed end (unpleasant to say the least!) and the Starbucks cup is empty. I understand the visual motif you want to achieve, but I don’t think that picture conveys it to the average person. I recommend you browse Startup Stock Photos and find something you like. This one is a much cleaner version of what you already have.

As said before, I echo the advice to use a different font. You’re selling yourself short here by using a font that looks like it’s been taken direct from an Office Word document. Have a look at the selection on Google Web Fonts. Knock yourself out.

I think your portfolio of work is quite strong, so good luck to you. :)
