Ok, so here is the conclusion why my design was rejected: I’m not good at design, PROBLEM SOLVED. Thank you all who posted something useful.

EXACTLY!

You’re not good at design….YET.

Hence why I said from the start, go away, read, learn, practise and hone your design skills, then try again.

Less frustration, greater chance of approval.
Yes you are right, but I was looking and for an advice that can point me in a direction. You didn’t said anything new for me, especially when I looked at approved items and I know what the problem is, but my theme is meant for a specific application… anyway I’m waisting my time here(and yours … )

You can only give useful advice when a design gets to a certain stage, you need to have the basic design principals down first.

Keep checking Dribbble & Awwwards and keep practising, you’ll soon start to see the subtle differences.

Also, have a read of typography and hierarchy articles on A List Apart, will help you a ton.

Finally a useful advice

Thank you
Welcome to the design industry ;)

For the moment I’m forced to learn design, but I love more web development or 3D art :D

I said by LoveThemes the rude stuff lol , anyway .. let us assume that you need to use real images so that is not the problem, your Featured Item and Latest Item sections are just small images, doesn’t look good, you need a more creative layout in these sections. Your team section looks a bit better with the sizes and the caption. But its complicated, if you make this changes will not change much, your problem is overall looks bad. Colors, sizes, typography, layout, spacings.
I would start again after a while to improve your skills. And with new fresh inspiration.

There is a world of difference between “rude” and just “blunt” critique.

The design industry is harsh, always has been and always will be, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

so should I understand that you are not speaking english wel as well ? Because I need feedback not “blunt” critique.

Did you ever heard of constructive criticism? If yes try it from time to time ;)

Dude, I gave you all the constructive criticism you needed, “the design isn’t good enough, you’re not ready, practise, practise practise”.

But all you seem to want to here is “yeah not bad, change this and this and this and you’re good to go”.

When in reality that sort of advice is just going to have you spend the next few months messing about on this design trying to get it approved when it simply won’t, not until you have mastered the basics of design.

Get over it, move on, practise, improve, then try again.

Ok you said it once, you said it twice, I got it, I’m not good at design, but you are rude and there is nothing in the world that can change this.

no need to be so rude, you are starting .. basically your template is too much outdated and does not respect terms of design so i must admit that i agree with lovethemes when it said that you need to study design. I think the rest is just practice, your eye will go catching up once you have clear all the basic aspects of design.
Good luck

Sorry, I didn’t mean to be rude.

I need your advice. For instance I used small thubmnails in in the homepage, but the trend right now is to use bigger image (Am I right ? ). But what can you do if you need small icons ?

Take a look at the projects section on this page :

Thank you manuelvega.

Relax, man. That’s your first theme (and the first rejection). Keep calm and go ahead.

When someone post a reply something like, “There is nothing to say, every single thing is wrong, you need to learn basic design principals.”... and this kind of you start to be a bit annoyed. Especially when you spend lots of time reading about usability, trends etc. I worked about a week working on the template(I posted just the homepage)

I would really like to know what is wrong with the usability on my design or color scheme, if everything is so bad …..

I like to give constructive feedback on forums when I post something :)

:D I’m calm, I’m not nervous. Sorry if I give you the wrong impression. I’m frustrated, but try to measure the response of a user based on the value they bring and you will see what I mean.

Happy sales!
