I think you should work more on typography and spacing. Your first approved template looks much better to me, don’t go below that quality. Also menu is almost invisible in position where it is now, maybe try to make it stick to top of the page all time.

I like it but I have the feeling that I’ve seen most of the elements somewhere else. At least the + effect on hover on portfolio is surely taken from another template.

Anyway, make the menu sticky, add some description and social icons to the team members, try adding some more text to the intro head section.

Also I’d expect to get something “more” when I click on the ”+” button on hover, to load some extended description/pictures/etc, on your template nothing happens.

Hey there,

It might be too similar to this http://visia.themes.pixelentity.com/ and probably that’s why it was rejected. ;)

I am not saying it’s extremely generic, brings nothing new to the table & is just plain-boring.

But it probably is.

On a more constructive note:

I don’t know what to say – honestly. I believe it needs a massive overhaul. But that’s a personal opinion!

I think it’s actually not bad despite some typography and spacing issues (especially near the footer). However, I think a bigger problem lies at its uniqueness (rather, the lack of) because TF is filled with themes like this recently, and I don’t see any special features in yours to distinguish it from others.

I lose the ability to get to the navigation once I’ve started scrolling past the first white bg area. There’s no “back to top” or sticky nav, so I feel like once I’ve reached the bottom, there’s no initiative for me to be required to go to, say “contact” or “shop”, or any other CTA.
As a buyer, I would not be interested in this since we lose the nav so easily, and it is too difficult for a user to then go back and find it.

I was also confused when I landed on the page. What am I waiting for? There’s no nav (except the cog to change colours) and just a rotating text area with nice pictures.
The navigation (and company logo) is hidden away initially – I’d say this is not what buyers would want.

Just my 2c.

Wow, congratulations. 10 times rejection and you still work on it then it approved.
