I think the reviewer was talking about the contrast between your orange text and black background. It kinda vibrates a little, it could indeed use some improvement.

Overall I think it looks ok, but it’s not like there aren’t a million themes out there similar to this one.

I see you got some skills, so, if I were u, I’d try to focus on bringing creative ways of solving problems into my designs. Try to answer the needs of potential customers. What could they really find useful? A theme that looks like a lot others out there?

Remember, like all forms of design, graphic design is about problem solving ;)

I agree with you, but 90% of all design on themeforest are not unique. I will try to improve the design a little more.

You have a great start here but the theme does need some refinements. Keep at it, you’ll get there.

Hmmm, I wouldn’t say that actually.

As far as I see, to get a design approved here, you need to come up with something special.

On the other hand, there’s usability. And with that in mind, after so many years and bilions of sites on the net, it’s almost impossible to have a unique design that’s not already similar to someone else’s.

It’s kind of confusing, but some designs just have that thingie which separates them from “the rest”, and this is the main thing I joined TF for :)

Good luck with your coding, I wish you inspiration and all the best .

TIP : for a small improvement, try using Kuler or ColourLovers for great colour schemes inspiration.

I have made some improvements and I wonder what you think, is the theme good enough now ?

Definitely an improvement.

However, allow me to say that the logo, in my opinion, still needs a little improvement.

You’re using an unnecessary drop shadow on it.

Also, I understand you want it in an orange gradient, to go with the h1 or h2 heading you got in the sidebar. That’s nice, but I think you could try and use a milder orange, as this one is too strong. Try looking at how others use orange on black, it should be quite subtle, because otherwise it vibrates.

One more thing: the bottom line of the actual posts (where you have the comments bubble) feels kinda empty. I would personally use a “Read More” link floated to the right.

So overall, I say congrats, in my opinion you only have to add minor details to it. It looks good.

Keep up the good work mate!

Looking forward to seeing this in the WP Themes category ;)
