Great work! I can guarantee everyone that this is an awesome theme!
Vector icons, CSS3 instead of images (or media queries to target retina).
That kind of stuff. Basically making everything look sharp on Retina displays.
I submitted this blog theme and it got soft-rejected: http://dahndesigns.net/themeforest/basic/
This is the feedback I received: The content area is pretty generic and plain, and it will need more imaginations.
Minimal templates can be clean and simple when you manage to handle the white space and details to provide a simple but yet unique template. But if you can’t, it will look like an incomplete template – blank template.
I’m kind of running out of ideas and I have no clue what they mean with “it will need more imaginations”.
Any help would be great.
Try a font like Bebas Neue or League Gothic.
It’s not really hover, it’s the clicked state. But I see what you mean
Looks better, try adding a subtle pattern to the headings
