Hey, guys.

I got rejected twice for submitting two different PSD Templates. So, I built another one with new measures and used a grid this time :)

I’m gonna take your opinion on this design.

I want you to tell me if it has the potential of getting accepted. And I avoided pretty much all the mistakes the reviewers told me about in the previous designs. I used a grid and used only one font face (just to be safe), and I also read a lot of articles about white space and concept in we design so I can design this one the right way, and I hope I did. you tell me.

And this is the design with the grid, you’ll see that everything lined almost perfectly. So please give me your feedback so I can see if I should continue in this design or not.

This looks nice, but I think it has better chance of getting accepted in the HTML category.

Thank you, dexterous for your opinion.

I’m gonna keep developing it and submit it as a PSD , if it didn’t get accepted, then I’ll code it and submit it as a web template.

If you have any suggestions on what should I add or implement in this design so it can be accepted in the PSD category, please tell me, I’ll really appreciate your opinion :)

Where to start?

Colors don’t work together, the design elements look cheap, the typography is way off. It lacks vertical rhythm and any sort of hierarchy.

This will not get into any category. My opinion, go back to the drawing board.

Sorry.

Harsh :( Not even one good thing about it, huh? Anyway, thanks for your opinion, I’ll tweak the colours and change the typography a bit, but as for the vertical rhythm I think it got a lot of that.

Anyway, I’ll keep working at it.

Honestly, in design you have to expect harsh critique it part and parcel. I’m not trying to make you feel bad but I’d rather say how it is and tell the truth.

What use would it be if I sugar coated it and gave you hope so you spend more time on something that won’t be accepted. I’d be wasting my time and yours.

And my opinion still stands, this won’t get accepted unless you make serious improvements.

Thanks for your critique, I a appreciate honesty, I really do, even if it’s a harsh one.

I just got a reviewer told me that this one has lots of potential provided I tweak the color palette and my use of white space. So now I really don’t know what to do. Should I start working on a new one from scratch or keep working on this one.
