Hi guys!

I’ve been working on this specialty page for a long time and I really have put a lot of effort and imagination for the purpose of delivering something unique and creative.

Yesterday I send it and it got rejected :( can you guys help me in any way?? I really want to improve my skills, and learn more every day. And I really have feith in this design and don’t want to throw everything away.

Here is the email I got from Siddharth:

This template is not ready for ThemeForest. Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. It requires improvements in term of design, visual hierarchy, typography, layout and its aesthetic quality but most importantly, its uniqueness and how the design is executed.

Hope to have constructive critics.

i think your design wanted to be BIG but couldn’t be big. Be brave about that i think. Also use cool icons, dont use texty twitter face links.

Hahahahahaha we are going trhough the same expierence, that’s funny and nice to know, because it makes me feel I’m not the only one. Let’s get through this all together! :)

What did you really mean when you said that the design wanted to be big but couldn’t be. Can you specify more that idea?

By the way, what are you working on?

:) yes, good to know everyone can get rejection. There are also some authors has sold above 10.000$ but even they can also get rejection because of some issues.

I wanted to say that, you want to use some big font-size, big images overall big sized elements on your design but they couldnt be.

i would use bigger font-size on countdown and the width of layoutis not enough i think.

i would change the place of social network links from top to anywhere else. Because you used shiny stripes come from air, but it is cut with that social network bar. i would remove it from there and get a breath to my design..

Also i have a forum threat about my template.. http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/i-got-my-first-rejection/53281 you can see my template there.

Yea!! I saw it, I liked it very much and really can’t see any issue with it, thats why i didn’t post any comments. Think maybe I have very less experience with template criticism or maybe ThemeForest.com is way to demanding..

Thank you very much for describing in detail your points of view. I apriciate!

Hugs!
