Hi, i have no recent works that i could provide to you to show you what i am capable of. Only thing i could do is get the item in question from you and give it back coded and let you see what i am capable of.

Would you be interested in letting someone like me with no reviews or anything have a bash at coding for you?

I’ll get a PSD from you and convert it also and give you it back and you can let me know what you think?

I understand if not, trying to put templates out there but i am not a designer so can’t ever get them on the marketplace and even when i did the one i submitted only got one sale as it was not very appealing.

Thanks

The concept is not outdated (although there is little space for this style left on TF). You can continue on this one, but you will need to do a bit of learning and cover the area you are trying design for. Starting on another template right away will not benefit you on the long run. You might do similar mistakes, or replicate another author, you will learn eventually that it’s not the optimal way. Are you primarily a developer or a designer?

i am primarily a developer not so good when coming to design. To be honest, that’s my first proper attempt at doing a web design.

This to me feels very unfinished as stated previously by users. Typography needs improving. Ask yourself this:

“What’s better about this theme than the current ones on TF?”

I’m sure you will even see yourself that the theme you have created is very simple compared to others on the marketplace.

is it mandatory to submit a template with documentation or it is optional

if you are uploading a theme then yes, it is mandatory to add documentation. It lets others know how to edit your theme if they have little or no experience in html

I don’t see any difference. You even deleted some elements in hope to get a better structure. You will need to work harder in order to get this accepted. I’m not talking about other 36 PSDs you are planning to make. I’m talking about the Home page that is nowhere near the standard. At the moment, this is called a mock-up.

Header is a mess, not even aligned vertically, not attractive. Like a house with no windows, plain roof without a chimney. Hamburger menu is supposed to be reserved for mobile devices, not desktop ones. If you are planning on making 40 PSDs, do you really think everything should be hidden behind that icon (that most people don’t even know that it’s a button)? You have absolutely too much space between images of experts, too little space between images and title. What is that button on hover effect supposed to be? After that, you have like 400px of nothing. Blog reveals that typography is a problem too at the moment.

I think if you make spacing perfect and an awesome header, it would still not be enough to get accepted. You will get a generic response from the reviewer that unfortunally, this is not unique enough. Don’t get me wrong, I’m trying to help you. But in order to get accepted on PSD section, you need to build a design that is pixel perfect and unique in a way.

thanks for the reply. I’ll scrap it then and start again if it’s not up to standards.

Definitely an improvement! Good job. I like the toggle menu :) On to the rest!

perfect, thanks for the advice. I can still see a little edit to be done at the latest blog entries, the heading is too spaced. but yeah, on to the rest :)

I like this concept, it’s simple but the content you’re putting in makes it effective. What I think you got right is the simple and clean colours to make it feel really creative and engaging, but I think you’re losing out on logical spacing. I want to give feedback on this design only: http://d.pr/i/lXY5 . Because I think if you fix this one, the rest will follow suit.

What do I mean by this? - You have spacing inconsistency per section of your site (sections being: Who we are, Recent work etc.) Try to get the larger spacing around (on top and bottom of) the section, rather than in the middle of it.

- Logical Spacing: Our Experts columns have some mega margin on them, Our recent work is bunched up, I’m not sure what alignment your fun facts have and your Latest Blog Posts which is also 3 column has a different space allocation to the Our Experts part. I think you need to either straighten things up and feel the awesome feeling of flawless alignment or try to give this technique you have come up with make sense and work, and who knows it might be the next web hype :D

I know you can do it bro, you have been using a strict margin of 21 pixels for the lines under your titles.

Good luck, hope I was clear enough on everything and that you agree with me.

Cheers.

now that’s what you call good feedback. thanks, much appreciated. I actually stopped doing this because i felt that the alignment was that bad. Still doing the concepts but just went straight in and started coding instead of designing it.
