Remove facebook, twiiter and google names – don’t associate them with your icons
This is what I would do: - remove invites you to (too wordy) - move club name to bottom - Make Apocalypse Large (Title) - Put Zombie Nite below it (sub title) - move date off title – incorporate it in the bottom layout or on the side of the hand – in a proper format - instead of centered layout do something different with the layout at bottom - remove social icon letters and names – use other icons (no social icons allowed now on GR) maybe try some original icons made by you with some photoshop or illustrator shapes - make icons you use white or one color (the blues and orange does not match the color scheme of the flyer – also make them smaller – hierarchy is important – icons should not be so big - maybe put a little grunge on smaller text also to match with title text
Quality on graphics looks good to me – your text layout and colors is what needs fixing – what your hierarchy – important info should be larger than less important info or colored in a way to dray more attention.
Hope that help Best of luck with the finished work
If you continue to upload great items, market them on at least 7-10 social networks plus your own website, find a niche section to create file for (look around for what’s needed on the shop – not necessarily what is popular)
Upload about 2-4 files per week with a 98 – 100% approval rate, always look for ways to learn new technique and styles (learn as you go)
With all that you can make $2,000 and above per month in a short period of time

Lucky (relevant) items, Quality and Unique item, quantity of items, social marketing, great tags, great title names – these are some of the things that I think work.
Lucky items work because they are relevant to what people are searching for. So if we design them – they will come looking and buying. Sometimes we get a lucky item unintentionally. We should take note of these items and also listen to our buyers that contact us for certain items.
Quality and unique items work because there are thousands of artist here and even though our items are different – there are similarities in layout, color schemes etc. Buyers are looking for something they have never seen before or that’s just hard to ignore – this is the response they want from there target audience. eg someone looking for a resume template, will look for one that has some creative curve to it that will attract the potential employer’s attention.
Quantity of items – this works if you are always following the relevancy and quality rule look at it like this. Where would you buy more? at a marketplace with 2 items (say a website software site with 2 items) or EnvatoMarket (with thousands of website software). You would buy more from the envato market. You want your portfolio to be the envatomarket. Keep uploading great quality and relevant items constantly.
Tags – Very very important – tags as we should know affect how people will find you both on the marketplace and on search engines like Google. They give us 30 tags to use so use all of they – if you put 29 tags, you are are cheating yourself from a possible click through. Your tags should correlate with your item, title and description. So quality and relevant tags and title names are important. If you are selling flyer templates – your title should have flyer and template in it and your tags should have flyer and template.
Social Marketing – very important because, it get people visiting your item and the more visits you have to that item is the more potential for sale. Also it’s good for SEO. Someone with only 10 link backs to their item may get a lower search position than someone that has 1,000 link back. There needs to be a lot of visits to your item each month to result in 100’s of sales on that item. Not everyone will buy.
Also – hierarchy is not good. Your company name should be the largest item on the card.Take a look at other good business cards on the size and pay attention to how they use hierarchy to communicate.
The file looks a bit rushed – it need more work. The background definitely need much more and better work. The text style also need some attention – especially the red to black gradient text – it’s hard to read. The hierarchy of the text can be tweaked. The style on the title text is mediocre – that thing need to draw the audience attention more – layout is good though. That’s all I have – It’s a good direction for a flyer but need to get that Wow effect – remember there are a lot of great flyers on the marketplace in this genre – your flyer need to be as great or better. Look around through the concert flyers on the site to get examples of great designs and what is trending.
If you need clearer advise from the reviewer use the support center http://support.envato.com/ to request more details about the hard rejection. I used it already and they usually give good and clearer advise or reasons for the hard rejection.
Best of luck with sales when you fix it and get it approved.
