Hmmm, well the design overall is nice, and the lettering is a lot better, but there are a few issues!

The photo having a shadow and the tape around it, not fitting in or floating above the photo is the main one!

And possibly the design looking a bit flat, (but that may not be the reason).

And l would YT some videos on lighting effects, and create a small library for yourself.

It takes a bit of effort, but comes in handy for the future!

Don’t feel to dispondant, my last three have been canned, but l can see the reason in each one.

The current one, (which is still in the oven) should get through, and l will be dumbfounded if it doesn’t?

If you work on something and it is too….? then it might be best to think up something else, or overhaul the design so it is more balanced!

Yep, already do that, but you are not allowed to sell, other flyers, etc, on the same site, as the GR ones, or sell them yourself!

And don’t forget to make your link affiliated, that way if someone signs up you will get the credit!

As well as any sales of course!

The lettering up top is the only issue l could find, but your preview image is tiny, so that is the only observation l can make!

The main reason it could have been canned, (l am not a template expert) is the width?

1920x is way to wide for most monitors, when l do a design for one of my sites l find that 1366 is more than wide enough, any more and the visitor will either see it left indexed or have to scroll across!

i most importantly think that some guys make trends, the lookalike Industrykidz for instance, but we are not all these exceptional designers and also GR has to remember that its diversity is part of the best things that they have to offer … we are not all the same and we don’t do all the same works …

Yes, that is possible, but hidden niches are still available! 8-)

really? lol so where are they hiding lol , in addition , i think that if so , the main authors ail get the main money again , so in short it doesn’t change anything to small or average sellers lol

Well, not technically hiding, but out of peoples awareness. Graffiti designs being one! Or designs where it looks like l doodled some text and graphics onto a notepad.

I would like to fool around with this concept one day, but prefer other niches!

Yes, nice flyers overall, but as others have said, some issues!

I did a Valentines flyer, with a dove and heart paper hole with roses, etc behind it. Nice design, but a bit dull!

As others have said, they want the best of the best instead of run of the mill best!

Probably just want to increase their stock dividends, which is good for them and us, but in another way, not the best for us?

Time will tell!

hi Sofy, well as for me i will praise the originality of your work, which is cool. The colors and style of what u have created help for that by the way. I will also add that this is very regrettable but in most cases, Tmcom is right , it looks like that here they are expecting light effects at all cost and that no work being without those lights can be accepted or go anywhere … .u sort of are forced to have those and the more the better so to speak, which is nonsensical! Actually, some guys have just light effects and they call this a flyer and everybody’s happy and this is approval despite the design is mess , elements are messily put and so on but they have “light”! such a big deal … . I will also call out Chris lol and tell him that i understand about the concern for great design, but then in that case, they have to do something to stop accepting things that have no design or no quality of design (which amounts to the same) at all and are “artificial acceptable designs” only based on lights. i willed up saying that maybe i have to follow Chris and TM, maybe your fonts are not the most purely good exempla of chinese things … however, i dare hop that this is not the reason for a global hard rejection all the same … lets keep in mind that fonts are more or less here to be changed by buyers, in other words , for me it can only a reason for a soft rejection, no more …

Yep, couldn’t agree more, but l have done designs with a lot of lights, etc for the lettering, and it got binned, because the background image was dark, and dull!

I suppose what Envato is trying to tell us that bling sells, or sells more?

Hi, again Sofystuff, phew good design overall, but it probably got canned because the design lacked lighting effects and/or the “night” text didn’t fit in with the rest of the text styles!

I went through that with a Val, flyer, and tried to get the text styles to fit the image, but it ended up being binned in the end!

The Night text seems to fight the rest of the text styles, and all text styles need to blend in with each other and not fight each other!

This might help….

But the Review team probably would have contacted you if that was the only issue, more likely the design isn’t attractive enough.

Minimal designs are fast to do, but also have a higher rate of rejection!
