Same happened to me, you focus on features but the design is nothing unique. But this time really, you have great and very creative items, reviewers are more vigilant than ever aside designs that having some months old. I must admit that they let some exceptions that i do not understand, but that does not concern me i guess. So , i like the theme, very neat. But well you know, maybe you can add more unique blocks.
I found the design outdated but well , as people said start fixing the errors.
I think I know exactly the reason why your submission was rejected. You’re trying to upload a PSD which is for Photoshop and a PSD is essentially just a photo, ThemeForest is meant for themes like WordPress themes, webpage themes. You should upload a zip folder with the contents that make up this theme that you are trying to sell on the marketplace. The zip folder should include the following: any .php, .html, .css, .js, .png, .jpg, ect files that make up that theme. Of course you can include any PSD files, but cannot be the only thing uploaded as that would not qualify as a theme; instead it would more qualify for Graphicriver, or Photodune.
Thats sad, your theme looks very very nice. And also have unique blocks like team & blog. I recently have a hard-rejection message too from a HTML so. We have to try to make it more unique. Good Luck
+1 too simple, looks good but maybe need more features and graphic elements etc.
I said by LoveThemes the rude stuff lol , anyway .. let us assume that you need to use real images so that is not the problem, your Featured Item and Latest Item sections are just small images, doesn’t look good, you need a more creative layout in these sections. Your team section looks a bit better with the sizes and the caption. But its complicated, if you make this changes will not change much, your problem is overall looks bad. Colors, sizes, typography, layout, spacings.
I would start again after a while to improve your skills. And with new fresh inspiration.
no need to be so rude, you are starting .. basically your template is too much outdated and does not respect terms of design so i must admit that i agree with lovethemes when it said that you need to study design. I think the rest is just practice, your eye will go catching up once you have clear all the basic aspects of design.
