Hi Eylul,

Thank you for your detailed input.
Point 1 and 2 have already been fixed. The revision has been committed 
and pushed in Launchpad.

1>> The tagline on the banner has been adjusted based on the revision, 
the tagline is smaller now, but let me know if it's not small enough.

2>> The social media now appear on Worpress preview (on customizer). As 
for the demo site, I have tested it on Firefox 69.0.3 and both icons are 
appearing well. Is it still not appearing on your side? If so, I will 
investigate it further.

Best regards,
