Hi, Guys. So I need some serious feedback on this one before continue doing the other pages. http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/2314/01homed.jpg

And of-course the most important questions is, should I continue or just trash it ? By the way, I’m gonna change the logo, that logo is just a place holder, so don’t judge it :)

Still not there I feel, you can improve the colors more. But keep trying.

Reduce the size of your ‘ream more’ buttons.

By the way, you are planning for HTML template or PSD ? if PSD then it needs a lot more work.

cheers.

How about now? is the header still cluttered?

Also you really need to work on color theory, try these:

Hey, Scott.

Thank you for your critique. As fro the spacing between sections, it’s a perfect 80px between each one, but not the space between the header and slider, I missed that one, thank you for highlighting it :)

As for the typography and line-height, I used this tool this time upon the advice of someone professional in this forum, so this is the settings that they recommended for this width.

As for the colours, I did used Kuler. And this colour scheme is one of the highest rated, maybe I didn’t use it right, so I will try to move colours around, but I honstly like this colour swatch, it’s calm, that’s why I like it.

I just finished working on the home page of this layout, and I need some feedback before I continue. Or if I even should continue at all.

Hey, guys.

I got rejected twice for submitting two different PSD Templates. So, I built another one with new measures and used a grid this time :)

I’m gonna take your opinion on this design.

http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/4496/homefl.jpg

I want you to tell me if it has the potential of getting accepted. And I avoided pretty much all the mistakes the reviewers told me about in the previous designs. I used a grid and used only one font face (just to be safe), and I also read a lot of articles about white space and concept in we design so I can design this one the right way, and I hope I did. you tell me.

And this is the design with the grid, you’ll see that everything lined almost perfectly. So please give me your feedback so I can see if I should continue in this design or not.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/417/homegrid.jpg Waiting for your opinion .

Where to start?

Colors don’t work together, the design elements look cheap, the typography is way off. It lacks vertical rhythm and any sort of hierarchy.

This will not get into any category. My opinion, go back to the drawing board.

Sorry.

-Scott

Harsh :( Not even one good thing about it, huh? Anyway, thanks for your opinion, I’ll tweak the colours and change the typography a bit, but as for the vertical rhythm I think it got a lot of that.

Anyway, I’ll keep working at it.

Honestly, in design you have to expect harsh critique it part and parcel. I’m not trying to make you feel bad but I’d rather say how it is and tell the truth.

What use would it be if I sugar coated it and gave you hope so you spend more time on something that won’t be accepted. I’d be wasting my time and yours.

And my opinion still stands, this won’t get accepted unless you make serious improvements.

-Scott

Thanks for your critique, I a appreciate honesty, I really do, even if it’s a harsh one.

I just got a reviewer told me that this one has lots of potential provided I tweak the color palette and my use of white space. So now I really don’t know what to do. Should I start working on a new one from scratch or keep working on this one.

Thank you, dexterous for your opinion.

I’m gonna keep developing it and submit it as a PSD , if it didn’t get accepted, then I’ll code it and submit it as a web template.

If you have any suggestions on what should I add or implement in this design so it can be accepted in the PSD category, please tell me, I’ll really appreciate your opinion :)
