Opinions about this Coming Soon Page, please?

Hello. I would like opinions on this item that I have tried to send and … well, rejected.
I have made itens more simpler, maybe less creative, that were accepted not much more than a year ago.

Item I tried to send:
https://www.behance.net/gallery/49892277/Rust-Coming-Soon-Page-PSD

Mentioned item accepted some time ago:

I, now at the University, will not have the time I had for new items. I would, however, like to know what went wrong in the rejected item.

Should the Font be in px?
If there is an outlined button, should EVERYONE be?
Should I ONLY send the homepage?
Using the Google Material Color palette shows lack of creativity / effort?

I am open to opinions.

I think the overall design is good. But in my opinion you may consider the background color, font hierarchy white spaces and the horizontal alignments
