Some basics are that you should have a thought behind what you create. This one seems to be for tech sites, but then why put pillows in it? Remove the textshadows.

Im the wrong guy to give pointers since im no fan of too much colors. To that belongs to children pages.

You also need to correct padding and margins.

I would drop the “apple” menu. That kind of menu was a hit a few years back and since it’s been used too much it’s not great anymore. The banner “new” is not readable.

Overall i think you should work more on it and get inspiration from other sites. To me this is too much a mixture of 90´s and early 00´s.

Sorry for that, but its my honest opinion..

Thanks for your suggestions. They are very useful for me. I am working on improve it.

You did a good job considering you’re only fifteen. But you still have a lot to learn and one way you can do that is to take a close look at the best themes here on ThemeForest and asking yourself: why are those themes so damned good? and what do I have to do to do better? My advice:
  1. Start over. Most often it’s easier to work on a clean slate.
  2. Try different font sizes. Like titles and such.
  3. Get rid of the newsticker / bar at the bottom.
  4. Remove the animated RSS and sound icons, it’s distracting.
  5. Get rid of the time on the top right. I already know the time, no need for the website to tell me.
Hello, I did some changes on this theme, do you think it’s look better than before? http://theme.typecho.co/

I did a survey in 37 Chinese persons, 31 persons(83.7%) are like my theme. Maybe Chinese persons’ Aesthetic standards are different from other countries?

You tried to copy the Apple website. It did not work out… copying is good to learn how to do stuff but don’t try to sell it here.

Hello, I don’t think I have copied Apple’s website. I just designed a Apple style theme. Actually, I did lots of changes of Apple’s.

To be quite brutally honest, It looks like a free theme, and not a massively good one at that! It is far from Premium in it’s visuals. I’m not wanting to be an a**hole, but you need it telling straight, that’s the only way you will learn, and improve!

Take a look at some of the popular themes here on TF, and get some ideas from those guys.

Good luck, and keep at it!! ;)

Thanks for your reply.

Could you please let me know which places’ visuals should be improved?

I am 15 so please give me more detailed information so that can help me improve it.
