I was surprised when I got the email message. Contests are always announced in forums / blog posts, but this one wasn’t. The email sounds a little spammy. Can Envato confirm this was official?

Also, sending direct messages to users should be opt-in, in my opinion.

It doesn’t feel ‘premium’

Looks old-school. Hit harder on design.

Hey, I got the dreaded hard rejection email. Some feedback would be great!

Your logo is boring, and so is the nav menu. The background for the header, as well as body is lacking in imagination. Same with the sidebar.

It just seems like something put together in 1 – 2 days, rushing for a deadline. A theme is more like a painting, than a meme or a doodle. Look at some of the newly approved themes, and then look at yours. Would you pay for your theme?

That yellow color in the logo, and your display pic, is really bugging me. I’m not sure if it’s just my screen, or the color itself.

Apart from this, you need to polish it more. It does look a little generic.

Overall, I’d say it’s good though.

Your theme looks a bit amateurish. You need a design philosophy, fine tuning, and lots of attention to detail.

Amazing. I have always wanted to travel, but I keep holding myself back – I don’t know why. What inspires you to travel?

Your theme looks very undercooked. There is a difference between minimal design, and absence of design. The former is when you spend one week putting in stuff, and two weeks removing it. The latter is when you don’t do squat.

Yep, it looks good.

If I were you I would:

Re-do the footer, specially the footer background.

Remove some of the animations.

Reduce the font-weight and color contrasts in the sentences.

Re-think the top navigation.
