The theme needs to be high quality. Take a look at themes here on TF and compare yours to them. And see how you could make yours better or at least on par with them, then make it unique :)

I meant most elements – rhombuses look generic because many themes use them here.

I would work on typography and alignment. I like the contrasts, but the elements are a bit generic and there’s no footer.

I would suggest you to go with max 1800px, but I don’t believe such rule exists. And you can always make an adaptation for retina screen, which doubles the pixels. Most people use 1170 grid nowadays, and use 1600px for max width – which is more than enough.

Thank you for your answer! I was confused with 900px wide preview image restriction from Envato docs so decided to consult with fellow authors :)

Thanks again for your help!

Hello everyone!

I’m helping a friend to prepare a file for upload to PSD category and she was wondering what is the maximum width for preview images (pages).

Could you please advise on this? I’d really appreciate any help.

Sincerely, Kate

Hi Sparky, Thank you a lot for response.

can you explain me a bit on ” The floating popup on the right from it needs more spacing on the left inside the box. Maybe align the buttons in the popup to the center or left?”

Thanks again.

Sorry for not responding sooner (I didn’t receive notification of your reply). I meant the pop up with “Josh” in it, at the top of the website, when it loads the first time – add more space around the text in the popup.

I think Quick Mail heading and its icon needs better alignment, right now the icon floats somewhere at the top.

When first loading the page, you have a logo Josh with grey background on the left hand side, at the top – make it pretty :) The floating popup on the right from it needs more spacing on the left inside the box. Maybe align the buttons in the popup to the center or left?

Otherwise, great improvement from your first demo link. Great work!

I agree, there needs to be more padding above the navigation, it feels a bit squeezed at the moment. Add more breezing room for all sections.

I would give paragraph text a bit different treatment. Why not try using a more concise feeling? I think it would go nice and tidy with the large heading settings.

I tried:

p { 
   font-size: 15px;
   line-height: 23px;
   font-weight: 500;
}

Also, the buttons might be slightly larger in width.

I don’t quite like the blue color – currently it clashes with the rest of color scheme. I would give a darker, navy blue a try.

“What they say” slider – the buttons are not legible over a dark background, make them white, maybe? The pictures might want more unique treatment.

Contact form (on home) feels dull. No offense intended. Maybe center a large textarea and reposition the input fields to create more dynamic feeling?

Footer feels unorganized and crowded. Do you really need all that information in there? If so, a better content hierarchy might be wanted here as well – the text could be much smaller.

Blog feels crowded.

I really like your template, Mondotheme. There are a lot of details and hard work put in, as I see it. If it’s not a replica of someone else’s work, this is a great work you have done.

The only suggestion I would give is perhaps make the header more prominent, especially on content/inner pages.

I would also ask for a more detailed description from a reviewer on what could be wrong with the template.

Good luck!
Thank you so much for your feedback. I started this theme from scratch 8 months ago, and have been rejected 4 times in last two months. I didn’t know that I could contact the reviewer for more detailed description, so thank you for giving me an information.

Yep, when I submitted my template quite a while ago actually, there was a possibility to create a ticket and ask for clarification as far as I remember. So, maybe worth a try? Why not try to submit to other marketplaces as well? I think it has a good shot at being sold.
