I am so frustrated about a soft rejection and the reviewers reaction.
I made a flyer template for Poker/Casino events. This fact should be made my files unique Then I created a green Poker Flyer Template and uploaded it.
1. Soft Rejection -> my file would not be unique enough.
I was wondered and created a horizontal, typography version and facebook timeline cover to give more uniqueness to my file.
2. Soft Rejection -> “This file design needs more work here. The composition is still too generic and simple, think about the typeface selection, the concept (the idea of a model placed over a series of objects is just too over done now) and generally how to push this item further and make it drastically different to others on the site.”
Hmm ok, “the idea of a model placed over a series of objects is just too over done” – why are the most of the latest flyer templates are all in that style?
3. Soft Rejection -> I decided to create a new version and made a red version without the image and lot of elements. Also 3 different color versions. It has a difference to the first layout. Also I wrote some nice words to the reviewer with all of my changes. It was a lot of work!
-> Now I am very annoyed. I only get a generated mail:
“This is a resubmission of a previously rejected submission. Resubmitting without making the required changes or any improvements is not considered acceptable use of the Envato marketplaces and repeated attempts may result in a temporary or permanent suspension of authorship.
If this item was previously soft-rejected, please resubmit your updated files by updating the item directly. If this item was previously hard-rejected, it must be changed as required in the initial review or significantly improved such that it qualifies as a new item.”
Now my question: What happened with all of the good graphicriver reviewers? Ok, they have a lot of work, but I think in my case he won´t give my flyer a chance. Is it so bad? What can I do? I am really afraid of resubmitting.
Here is an image showing the process:
Very good looking. As mentioned in gray colour could changed. Also why the top and footer area is empty? May be you could try fit the whole area with content. Like give the content/slider 100% height.
Thanks. Would think about a higher content slider. But at the moment I like this “empty” area
Hey Dom, this is what I call a professional portfolio! Well done mate, the only bug I noticed is that you can´t open the preview of the individual files? But this is an error in the matrix, I guess? Gruß dimi
This was my intention. I don´t want to have the images opened in a lightbox, etc.

I dislike the typography. Try more font styles / other fonts.
The event info looks too squeezed on the bottom. Give more space to “live”.
Try some text effects in your heading. Looks to simple.
Looks awesome – love the profile pages especially. Personally not a huge fan of the nav font but can completely see how it works on the site and its not a bad thing. Great stuff
I am also not happy with my navigation and spend hours to think about a new one. But have no idea to change it – Need some help/advices for a new nav
Made some changes. New work, new color, etc.
What do you think guys?
