Finished? It looks like it’s just full of placeholder icons and text, which makes it difficult to critique. That being said, here is a laundry list of things I’d look at improving or just otherwise going over.

– If you’re going to use large icons in the Services section, I’d like to see some interaction. Maybe a little glow when you hover; maybe the subtitle goes bold. Something to indicate that this is more than just a 1-sentence blurb.

– For the about section I would consider using columns of text instead of letting the text span the full width. It makes the placeholder text difficult to digest and also makes the content seem minimal. In addition, I would ask myself why the font here is so much smaller than the rest fo the site.

– The entire team area is hard for me to focus on. The background is competing so heavily with the pictures. When I go for example, to look at Marc Batra’s name… my eye keeps focusing on the Adidas text on the background.

– Have you considered moving the Featured blog posts text into the picture, and making that a slider? I think that would be a great way to add additional content and tighten the blog area up.

…. that being said I think the color scheme is very nicely thought out. It’s minimal without being too simplistic. The layout is very standard for 1-pagers and I think maybe that and the Google icons and placeholder text is what is throwing Paulie_D off.
