I’m working on a WP theme and would like a bit of feedback. I’m going for a minimal aesthetic but I need some fresh eyes to take a look and see if it is too minimal (boring). Any suggestions for improvement are appreciated. http://preview.grspixel.com/test/

This is absolutely fantastic! Well done.

A few suggestions: Move the header menu underneath logo Vary colour schemes, white is a bit boring

Favourite parts are: Contact page Blog

Why not post it for sale and see what happens!

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the theme was rejected. I need the feedback to try and get it approved. Thanks for the suggestions, it helps to have some fresh eyes look at a design.

Also, vary the fonts across the different sections.

Another thing that would be nice is a white background for the slider area, it seems a bit strange how it has the same background as the main page.

Sam :)

Nope – I flagged my own comment because I’d posted it twice by accident.

Also forgot to mention that the hard rejection was ” it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies”. I have received a couple of rejections for previous versions but this one is new to me. I can only assume it is due to aesthetics as my code validates bar a couple of IE fixes and use of hgroup (hgroup shouldn’t have been a problem when I submitted). Can anyone give insight into the minimum quality requirements?

I appreciate the help Samberson has given, but it would be great to get the thoughts of some others too. Some more eyes over the design will surely bring up some other points. All help is appreciated.

I think that you need more color in it. Use some attractive images with color in them…
