    As art, it's a beautiful site. As a way to communicate what the company does/why I should care, I don't think it's very effective.

    It took me way too long to realize that clicking 'more' gave me information about what the company does. That's the information I'm primarily interested in if I'm shopping for an agency. The first thing I did was click on the big circle, then I clicked close. After that, I stopped thinking about the 'more' button as anything other than a secondary action.

    Everything looks great, though.

    EDIT: Also, this could just be, me but having founders, then leads, and then apprentices doesn't make me want to work there. An apprentice title at a tech agency is, in my opinion, slightly condescending.

      Maybe their core demographic wasn't people shopping for an agency. All businesses are different but when I worked on the design of an agencies own site we discovered that very little work comes in through the website. We had two choices about whether we tried to increase the amount of work we got through the site or used it for a different purpose. Perhaps they had the same decision to make and came to a different conclusion.

      Sometimes agencies want to use their site to increase their recognition in their own field or even to win design awards (seems tacky but it happens).
