Hello everyone! I would like any reviews on a potential theme that I am developing called “circular”. If you have the time, I would appreciate it if anyone could critique this with a fine tooth comb. I am open to suggestions

Thanks!

I personally think that this is a great looking theme. Plus I like how you include tons of features for the user.

However, I can kind of see how the reviewer may see this as generic. There are certain elements that are overly used. For example your header looks similar to that of the Wordpress theme called Metaverse (in terms of organization). (The logo is positioned on the left, navigation underneath with a gradient, social links, contact # on the right) In addition, your javascript hover effects are similar to that of many others on Themeforest. So maybe check out some other types of effects.

I believe there is huge potential in this. One thing I would suggest that I dont see much on here is what I like to call “breaking from the stupid rectangle” We as designers are so used to working in a little box but we never ask ourselves why we have to design that way.

My suggestion, look at websites that gets out of the box, and even breaks the grid a tiny bit. Maybe that will help.
