Themepixels, what should I learn from an email without any info? You can learn something from an empty space – that’s cool :) I can’t.

maybe the review message will not say or do not teach anything , but the simple fact of rejection makes you keeps improving .. Obviously I favor on detailed feedbacks but so is the job here and you have to get used ..

From my experience if the template is far from ready they will not specify what part of your design that needs improvement. But if your template have a good quality then that wold be the time they will give you specific information.

In your case you need to focus more on the quality the look and feel. Go to dribbble.com it will help you a lot.

I remember I was like you before, I left TF for a year and in that year I practiced more and after that I submitted my template based from what I’ve learned in that year, then it got accepted. Now I have 5 items here in TF..Don’t get upset instead focus and don’t just wait for the reviewers to give you more information, you’re just wasting the time waiting. Internet is big there are more valuable information out there. Think of it.

I like your template. INHO if you change the logo font and rework the spacing and typography a bit, it will get accepted for sure as it’s very unique.

Cheers.

Hello,

Your design is actually quite good, but as others have pointed out, you need to work on typography and some spacing. Try increasing the line-height and I think it would be good to increase the font-size as well because having more than 25 words per line makes reading rather difficult.

Also, try to replace the buttons with something ‘newer’. Strong gradients with 1px highlight doesn’t look cool most of the time (unless it is well-executed). The header / navigation also needs some ‘fixing’ to suit the overall design, especially the logo which doesn’t seem to fit at all.

Good luck getting it accepted!

PS : Perhaps you don’t know, it is easier to be accepted in the HTML than PSD category. PSD category has the ‘strictest’ guidelines because you have nothing to offer other than the ‘appearance’ and it generally does not sell as well as other categories in TF.

Thanks everybody for your response! Anyway I don’t want to just sit here and guess what that reviewer guy thought about when he rejected my work. I also don’t want to change something blindly, like logo or spacing or something else. It’s a matter of taste and in my opinion it’s a great design. May be some little things could be improved (I believe there’s no such thing as a perfect design), but I think the reviewer could simply tell me what’s wrong. If he couldn’t… well I don’t want to make it my problem :) I opened a ticket and hope to get an answer.

What I also would like to say is improving your designs blindly doesn’t make you a better designer – you just try to meet the expectations of some unknown guy, may be with the worst taste ever :)) I mean it doesn’t differ from a typical designer-and-customer situation when a customer says “I don’t like it and I don’t know what’s wrong – you’re a designer, you must know it!”
