I checked the CircloSquero theme and unfortunately it seems that our designer took the easy route for that. Thanks a lot for your feedback.

If I would be you, I would definitly kick your designer out of the office, because this is a really bad example for “inspiration” ...

It reminds me a lot of the minimalistic designs of the famous cargo collective and thats the reason why I really love this theme. I would also add some more features and maybe a cool hover effect for the portfolio site f.e. http://webdesignandsuch.com/jquery-sliding-boxes-and-captions/ or something like http://buildinternet.com/2009/03/sliding-boxes-and-captions-with-jquery/

Good luck with it. I would definitly buy it, if it will be accepted by the staff.

Hello, I would love if someone could give me some tips / comments how I can improve the design to receive an approval In my opinion the design is very good but probably have some small details that make him not be approved

the design:

Home page: http://www.fastup.co.il/images/49405642.png works page: http://www.fastup.co.il/images/46912803.png inner works page: http://www.fastup.co.il/images/11432697.png

Thanks in advance

Your opinion is false, because the design is not really good, the home page is boring, the elements not really unique, the typography bad and the spacing even not better. Try to improve this things and you´ve got maybe a little change to get accepted, but I hope for you, that this is not for the PSD category.

Good luck with it.

It’s just too basic. You’ve also got too many styles going on, wood, brushed metal etc..

Also work on the spacing, typography and visual hierarchy.

Try to use one style and change the points Scott told about (f.e. spacing and typography)

Iam totally sick of this guys hanging around here at Themeforest:

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/our-latest-design-review-/45777

@ Envato -> Its time to be bad, but fair guys – bann this **. Its one thing to copy some parts as inspiration and change them, but how algid can someone be and save a screenshot of another site, erase some parts and post the result (still with 95 % parts of the other site – like german text -> hello the guys are from India).

In the last weeks I was not often online here, because its more and more so, that mostly everyone is copying from the bestseller here. Even guys with a black or golden paw for sales follow this “trend”.

That is a way too basic, nothing creativ and special. You have to change a lot like visual hierarchy, element details, graphics, ...

Try to look for some inspiration out of Themeforest f.e. in some galleries.

Good luck with it.

It needs work.

Why is the active/hover on the nav so big? So drop down transparency looks too light also.

The search box position looks wrong and there is no cue to what its for, “Start Typing” means nothing.

The shadow under the slider looks wrong, move it up under the image slightly.

You need to work on typography, spacings and alignment too.

Try to use a 960 grid system and some own lines in Photoshop to get a better spacing, hierarchy and allignment.

Sorry louiejie,

its okay, but nothing new and its also looking like some of the newest themes here. Try to create something more unique or at least try to add some cool elements in design.

Good luck with it.

I don’t think you need to add any color. What you need to do is work on the spacings and visual hierarchy.

I understand the minimal look but at the moment it looks unfinished.

Scott

I like the minimal idea behind the theme, but try to work on the spacings, typography, hierarchy and maybe add some textures, icons or other unique elements to spice it up.

Good luck with it.

And?

Themeforest criteria is different and this just isn’t good enough.

I totally agree with Scott. You can´t compare Activeden with Themeforest like you can´t compare Videohive with Themeforest, because there is a lot of trash and really bad stuff accepted by the reviewers. Sure Themeforest got also some ugly themes, but I think the skills are a lot higher here.

To your theme -> Its boring, the bokeh effect is 2005 and not 2011, the vcard portfolios are available about 30 times here and yours is not really better than anyone of it. There are also some coding issues in the new Firefox (download text). Try to add some more features and unique elements.

Good luck with it.
