Hi,

Made a couple of suggestions, please don’t take me wrong, I want to help you :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_1O2eKVdQO8c/Tdf1NlQVZ5I/AAAAAAAAALI/Z3PxA_4YNnw/s512/Prix%20Template%202011-05-21%2018-23-26.png

Hi, thanks.

Your image is very small :) Can’t see anything. The only thing I can guess is that you want to move the contents toward the borders of the background, but maybe you’re not understanding the layout (this is optimized for 960 width like every theme here). The site is fixed and centered, the background is completely visible only if your screen is large enough :)

In any case, I would like to see a bigger image and bve able to check your suggestions!

Thanks ;)

Just because you’re an “elite author” doesn’t mean that it’ll automatically accepted.

The typography isn’t very good, especially the headings.

The darker background doesn’t look good at all.

Other than that, it’s rather plain. If you want a simple design, atleast make it look good :)

Good luck!

It completely lacks vertical rhythm and has a few spacing issues such as the title/paragraph to the right of the slider, why such a big space between?

It also all fights for attention leaving you without a clue where to look first.

Thanks for the feedbacks, I’ll take in consideration your opinions.

@Kaasper

Never said that it will be accepted automatically because I’m an elite author, I just com pare the quality of this design to the average quality of the latest themes accepted.

Cuz your are opinions like mine, based on a personal taste, I still wait an answer by a reviewer. I need to know exactly what to change and what isn’t good.

@iKreativ

Vertical rhythm? :)

Eventually I’ll give this theme as freebie to my loyal customers.

Cheers everybody,

Parker

ps

I apologize again with the community for the public vent, I was just shocked by my first rejection in 3 years :)

No, I’ll google it :) Thanks.

This will be a freebie, I see that isn’t good enough for this marketplace.

Cheers everybody.

I just want to add 0.02$ :P

1. Like few other said – BG is horrible.

2. The ways you use does 3 “main” colors doesn’t make sense.

3. You’ve got there massive empty areas with horrible bg.

4. I won’t agree with reviewer that this theme isn’t unique – you just simply tried to make it weird too much IMO ;P

If you saying that you’ve 12 years experience in web design, than I have 11. I’ve started when I was 15 now I’m 27 and hey is that make me brilliant designer? No.

Design and Development are two different things – you might be top notch developer..

from what I see you’re just a narcissist, because not a number of sales make you a good designer, but knowledge and experience.

Good luck with with next project.

Raf.

^ spicy tongue you have :p (which bg of the 10 you didn’t like and where did you see the wide empty areas? The theme is 960 wide and completely full of elements, there’s no wide empty space anywhere).

Precious suggestions, thanks for sharing your opinions. It’s never late to learn new things.

Btw, we have just started the next project… probably the Prix was an unlucky one. Stop talking, I need to go back to work.

It has been just a vent and I personally and privately apologized with my reviewer. So, diuscussion closed.
