Hi, I have had my theme rejected with the following comments:

This looks clean but we feel that the overall design needs to be executed better and have more unique elements. We tend to have a ton of design with the same overall concept and this just feels too generic.

Overall, it has a good starting concept and it seems you’ve aimed for simplicity, but the overall design lacks refinement in its design that would help it stand out as more unique. At this point, you’ll need to improve the design quality before it will be ready for ThemeForest.

I am at a loss on how to improve it, how can I execute it better and what other elements could I add? It is a cv portfolio template and has a sortable gallery, nivo slider, slide thumbs, an accordian for services, page layout…

Here’s a few screenshots:

If anybody really wants to help out I can give you the link, thanks in advance! Help!!!

Hmm the text looks thinner and strange like it’s anti-aliased on the demo, compared to the jpgs. I’m sure there are more elements you could add, like maybe a footer? I’m sure other foresters will have ideas.
