Hello, I am new to ThemeForest and web design in general. So as the title suggests my question is:
Is it ok to base my work off of an existing website ?.

The website in question would be this one: http://www.ringvemedia.com/
I really like that layout and want to incorporate it in my html template. Is that ok? or would I be braking some kind of copyright?

Thank You.

to be an author here you need to follow those rules: http://themeforest.net/author_guide

first one:

The items you upload for sale must be your own creation. Do not submit works based on tutorials or other people’s designs.
