Hey guys,

I just uploaded my first theme here after months of hard work. We got the reply:

Please give me insights on what could be the issue. Thank you :)

At first glance:

  1. The menu at the very top feels flat and dull.
  2. I’d work on the logo some more.
  3. The overall typography needs improvement, more line height.
  4. The search icon is misaligned and too big, subtlety goes a long way.
  5. I’d make it wider, give the content boxes more room to breath (equal margins and padding).
  6. The footer needs to have more height/padding.

Thanks for the input, Matt. I’ll change the nav, logo, footer and search icon. But give me a little more on the type. I’ve used PT Sans Narrow in the body and titles and Curprum in the nav. About the content width, isn’t it mandatory to have 960px width? Last question, how’s the code? Thanks :-)

There is an overload of texture.

I suggest removing some of the texture or making it more subtle.

Thank you, Jaynes. I wasn’t feeling the textures myself. Will make them more subtle :-). Give me more feedback guys.

What about adding a secondary accent color for buttons and misc elements in order to create a more visually pleasant color scheme. Now it feels a bit neutral.

Good luck!

The color scheme of this theme was dark colors. I chose grey and dark green as the two primary colors for the elements. What do you suggest?

Give it another touch of a brighter color. Maybe a blue or green or yellow. It should break the monotony.

I am Sure you must be having proper documentation and code comments , besides that for your markup/style i have following suggestions..

Sugg1 : Try a lighter color scheme.

Sugg2 : Don’t use more than 3 colors in your theme , it confuses the viewer.

Sugg3: Provide Specific heading to your various sections , with relevant font-sizes.

Sugg4: Don’t use to many font-sizes/font-styles.

Sugg5: for mobile devices your 3 cols after lifestyle section are very very small.

Finally it seems to me that main problem is with your fonts/font-sizes

Best of luck/wishes for future…...
