Hello,

I’m trying to make way through the “world” since it is a passion for me for nearly 2 – 3 years. But I’m having a hard time to make my templates approved by TF.

I only have 1year experience in this domain, but didn’t have “big” customers, it where just some friends and people how wanted a website, blog, nothing really fancy, just simple and neat.

For most of the time I was receiving some real good feedback from my clients and so I was looking for a way to create templates and then sell them, so I found this marketplace and wanted to get my hand on it.

I’ve uploaded several times different templates (all site templates) but none of them was accepted. I’ve spend many hours working on the templates doiing my best to make it work for every browser etc …

So I was wondering how you guys had your first step in this marketplace? I don’t have anyone in my family/friends who has any idea how webdesign works, so it’s difficult for me to get some guidance and I think that I need some.

Perhaps you could post a few images of the sites you tried to submit so that we can get an understanding of where any problems may lie?

It’d probably be easier for us to provide guidance in the right areas.

Well, for one, you use Comic Sans. Big mistake.

I’m gonna be sincere with you. I think you need to practise more before submitting a template. Take a look at the templates here at themeforest and be inspired by them. A good way to improve your design skills is to take a design and try to make a new identical one in photoshop.

Here are some suggestions for you:

  • Use more padding/spacing
  • Don´t use fonts like Comic sans
  • Try to stick with a color scheme
  • Focus more on the typography
  • Use line-height

Good luck and don´t give up. It takes time to reach a certain level of quality.

Hi, thanks for your feedback :)

I’ll focus on those points, I’ve purchase some templates so that I can use it as example and I’ll try to make something at same quality.

Would it be good if I first upload the PSD before working on the code? this part takes much more time then working in PS (it is so for me, I don’t know if it the same for other peoples?).

Absolutely a good idea, and for several reasons. One, requirements (design-wise) for PSD files are MUCH higher than for the same coded file, so if your design is accepted as a PSD , you can be sure it will not have any issues in the HTML category (at least from the design end). Two, releasing a PSD version of the template first is a good way to test the market waters, as it lets you get a feel for whether or not that particular design would sell well as a coded template.
