It would’ve created a true race to the bottom which would’ve been more prominent than the current one.
Like the ‘40 page Demos out-of-the-box, that look exactly like our last theme, just with different pictures, with little animations that tell you how many cups of coffee we’ve had this week (who gives a [profanity])’. Are you referring to those?
Have watched it about 6 times now. Still cheers me up. One of the funniest videos I’ve watched in a long time.
As much as the guys here have told you about colors that isn’t the only issue. The design is very generic and based on a simple bootstrap theme which will not be accepted on the marketplace.
I was just focusing on the colours initially. But, yeah, the overall aesthetic is lacking.
You should look at finding colour schemes that work together much better than you currently have.
There’s nothing wrong in using vibrant colours, but they do not work together currently, and look more garish, than vibrant.
Here’s another great place to look for improved colour schemes -https://color.adobe.com/explore/most-popular/?time=all
I can see you’ve been possibly influenced by the Google Material Colors?
But the combination/choice of colours currently is truly dreadful.
If you are going that route take a look here -http://www.google.co.uk/design/spec/style/color.html#
If you’re using Photoshop primarily for UI work, make the jump to Sketch now.
Have used Sketch for a long time now, and it’s evolved greatly. Recommend it 100%.
I’m working on my latest theme using Sketch. 68 Artboards in total, and that one file weighs in at around 300MB, beat that Photoshop
Like ThemeProvince mentioned, choose some nice Fonts. Currently the Resume, and Blog sections for example look very dull.
The text in there just melds into one. Remember the majority of people are going to scan your design quickly, so you need to improve on the visual hierarchy there.
Those animations are still a little funky. Chrome on OSX judders as you scroll down the page. Not cool.
