I don’t want to sound harsh, but you seriously need to focus on design.

Also have a look at the recent accepted Tumblr themes to get a sense of the quality.

All the best,

I don’t know but I said in the description it is a professional design like a business design and I assumed in this approach I don’t have to make fancy looking stuff of popup images or colored on hover icons and so on…

however if you have time can you tell me what makes you said it is a bad design from the first look, I need to learn from my mistakes…

@Holmez – The theme looks very cramped and I can’t tell where each post stop or starts. That font doesn’t really work either. Pick a nicer, cleaner font. Also the design needs some breathing space, try adding in some padding or margins.

First of all, take the advice Christine gave you. This will surely help to improve your design. Secondly, go to the website I gave you in my previous post and learn the basic of margin, padding, white-space, typography.

Here is a article to start off:

I got to give props to ChristineWilde and kriskorn for coming up with concrete suggestions for Holmez. Mikedidthis also had solid comments for kriskorn in a separate thread.

My theme was also rejected and the feedback I got from the reviewer was pretty vague.

I made a number of changes and resubmitted so I’m hoping my assumptions on what got it rejected are on point.

Here is my updated design if anyone wants to provide constructive criticism.

You should open separated theme for this.

First “big text theme” should go inside h1 tags, not to be image. Second typography if very bad, line height, non existing paddings etc…learn something about that.

@rayoflightt – Thanks for the feedback but the header is in an h1 tag and it is not an image. Do you have any info on line height issues? Links to solid articles or examples would help.

Looks like there are only 3 spots left… still waiting to hear about my theme (fingers crossed)
