I submitted my first theme design last week and received the following message today:

Unfortunately your submission Kleen: Responsive Wordpress Portfolio Theme isn’t ready for ThemeForest and cannot be resubmitted as it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies. In order for submissions to be considered for sale they must be of high aesthetic and technical quality, unique to our library and cannot be in violation of Envato’s policies. Please see our Knowledgebase for more information: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/399/57/

Our Review team also provided these comments:

The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time.

I’m not sure is the is code or design related or both. I used “Theme Check” to make sure there were no errors or notices so I’m guessing it’s design related.

I understand that it’s not the reviewers responsibility to tell me specifically what changes I need to make but I’m uncertain on what steps I should take next. Any advice/criticism would be greatly appreciated :)

Here is my theme: http://www.abcgraphicdesigns2.net/demo/theme/kleen/

Thanks

“aesthetic (design)” and “technical requirements (code)”.
About your item, it seems unfinished.

1. Top small bar, add something to the right.
2. Slider / Img, padding issues with the text.
3. Content = padding issues again.
4. Footer, again it seems unfinished.

You are still using XHTML 1.0 Transitional, change to HTML5. It doesn’t matter how perfect will be the padding next time, etc, your design isn’t good for TF, you’ll need to try something new, a new concept.

Feels empty and unfinished and the typography and spacing really need work.
