Apart from the suggestions made above I also think that you preview looks very smudgy and over compressed.

Cheers

hi all,

I just got a soft reject for one of my files because “it appears there’s a problem with your Preview Image Set.”.

I checked and I saw I messed up on the numbering of the preview images.

So I fixed that and resubmitted, but now I realised that my hidden item with the soft reject does actually feature the additional preview images. You can click on the “screenshot” button and get to see all the preview images.

So now I’m wondering: if the soft reject was because there was a problem with my preview images, but my hidden item does actually feature working preview images … hmmmm … Am I missing something?

Or is it normal procedure that they put up the preview images even though the format was not quite correct.

I named them “example-5.jpg” instead of “05_example.jpg”.

Just wondering while I wait for the review to my update…

Cheers

Chris

PS: hey, it’s only a soft reject, that means that my item as such is great, horray :)

All that for a file that’s worth three or four bucks? How much time and money does the back and forth cost? He’d probably be cheaper of just buying the file he needed instead of losing time writing silly e-mails…

Honestly, I would ask for the reviewer to give some details as to what’s missing here. Personally I think it looks nice. Maybe they just question the usefulness. Maybe it’s not flexible enough. Maybe the reviewer spotted some quality issue I don’t see. “X” mentions the faces needing some work … I think that until you get some feedback from the review team it’s all just guesswork…

Cheers

The image is cool. the only problem I see with it is that I would know what to do with it. One of the basic requirement is that it is useful to other designers. But then again maybe there are people out there will need technical drawings to complete their designs … Just give it a shot and see what they say.

Cheers

Take a look at needed/unneeded files:

http://wiki.envato.com/selling/tips-selling/graphicriver-files-we-need-and-dont-need/

You will see why you will have trouble getting this excepted!

Apart from that you set contains very few elements and as Q&E says it lacks quite a bit of polish.

I would however not concentrate on this as it will be very hard to have it accepted even if it were a top-quality file. Go for something where there are less files available already.

Cheers

Chris

The quality is not the issue here. As the reviewer says they do not have a problem with that. The problem is simply that there are many similar files already. So even if this was a perfect file it would not get accepted.

I can understand that’s disappointing, a lot of work must’ve gone into this. If you look at the needed/unneeded files you will see that Graphic River is not interested in UI systems at the moment. That is the basic flaw of this file.

So you really have to make something different, or something new with this.

Since the quality is great you can always use it to complement and other file either as a bonus or as an extension. For example create a bundle: banners, web Boxes and UI. he would then have the quality file and it will Sell at a higher price then just banners or web boxes. This way you can still get some profit out of all the work you did.

Cheers

Chris

Well, that’s good and detailed feedback! You can also use that to improve your file.

He’s definitely right in that you logo is pretty narrow in what it can be used for and they probably look for more open templates with a wider applicable use.

Definitely do not give up, we all get our share of rejections, and afterwards usually our files are much better :)

It’s all part of the journey… ;)

Cheers

I like it, it’s cool :)

Alter you seem to be doing the fashionable thing … Everybody seems to be called “pixel something” these days. But then were my to talk, how many lemons are there doing design stuff, must be the most creative fruit on the planet – lol :)

Good luck

Cheers

Honestly, I think it’s quite nice!

It was probably deemed a bit too simple, not special enough, not unique enough. Often Logo reviews also very subjective…

You can always play around with the font. I don’t see anything wrong with it, but it’s not particularly innovative either.

Maybe some of the more experienced logo designers around here can give you more feedback but I definitely think this is one of the better files with seemed rejected recently.

Good luck

Chris
