You are definitely making progress – think like this (sorry been teaching people recently!)...

If I were a buyer why would I buy your design over the countless other one page designs on here that are already coded (aside form maybe wanting to put it into my own /CMS but even then HTML would be easier)?

To me (few type issues aside) you have a really nice building block to work with BUT you still need to add something that catches the reviewers eye and makes it stand out.

If you look at for example ‘Bridge’ by Qode – they have the cover box thing http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/bridge/cover-boxes/ so its hardly rocket science design BUT how many times have you seen it on other files? It is these little touches that not only make it unique BUT also excuses tiny flaws in design that would otherwise cause some files to be rejected.

Also think short codes, elements etc and avoid ALL central text.

Look at other good PSDs (at random) http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/8234565-sim-one-page-psd-template?index=1&url_name=sim-one-page-psd-template – look at the fonts and the type – while variable when necessary it is accurate and consistent. Add this to yours (Gill sans font?) and it will completely change the design.

I have spent 3 days with someone trying to get their first file approved – two key points always keep coming up Versatility (without overloading pointless features and most of all attention to detail.

Good luck

Some nice features especially the rollovers.

Typography need attention throughout

footer needs work

crop down menu looks a bit cramped

‘top’ button is pixelated

contact/about pages feel incomplete and blank space

sidebar a bit long on men/woman so ads cause blank space below items

kids is empty

avoid semi naked pics on blog

titles on quick view too small

Think attention to detail

Its not bad but has been done a lot of times and lacks originality.

Typography on portfolio filter and team names needs work

A vast improvement on where it was.

Typography still needs work although less of it – focus on consistency in sizing esp in how it works/team/services

I think you would have a much better chance if coded if that is an option

You still need to add something stand out about it. Right now it is much better but still lacks noticeable uniqueness.

Generally I think it is not bad.

Not a fan of the logo and the strap line looks weak

I’s lose all the italic fonts throughput – they do not work great with the font choice and ruin it a bit

Sidebar widgets look clean but calendar shows July with back button to April?

Footer could be tidier/more creative – it looks a bit squashed right now.

Definitely surprised it was a hard rejection

No worries. Good luck

p.s. be careful of alignment and spacing to throughout – the header looks like there are issues between logo/icons/top nav/main nav already.
