I would lighten the shadows a bit. Make them a little more subtle.

Also, I would make the symbol in the header match the color of the symbol in the footer.

Looking good though.

I moved this from another category because I wasn’t receiving much feedback…

I’m thinking of putting my personal Wordpress theme up on Theme Forest. It’s great especially for Xbox live members since I intigrated a dynamic image of your avatar in the header. There’s also tool tip intigration (for the social icons) and a smooth scroll link at the bottom.

What do you think?

I agree with the above comments, but I will try to be specific in helping you with your design…

Almost all of the design elements look pixelated like they were just copied and pasted into the image. You want to make sure that whatever elements you add to the template are created in Photoshop (and layered) so that buyers can customize them or change them to their liking.

The navigation text also looks pixelated, which tells me that I can’t edit the text.

Finally, there is a lot of solid color in the design. Try adding some lighting effects or texture to make it stand out more.

Good luck!

So, just like any good book, it gives too much info :P

That’s why you need to read ‘Head First’! It’s SUPER easy to read.

Great discussion here.

I HATE it when files get rejected. Especially on Theme Forest, where designing and submitting work takes a looooong time.

However, “ryguy” hit the nail on the head: it only makes your designs better. It’s tough when your files get criticized, and it’s real easy to take it personal since art is personal, but I believe good art is created through conflict (just watch an episode of American Chopper:-)).

I’m not trying to get all “deep” here in the forums. I just wanted to encourage you to keep at it.
