Hi guys I’ve just had my latest theme Appzilla rejected with the following reason,

This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria. Your template’s design does not meet our quality standards at this time and will need significant improvements before it will be ready to be reviewed again. You might consider taking a look at some of our popular premium items to get a better idea for the quality level of graphics, typography and general design that we require for approval.

I’m a little bit lost with where to start so any input would be appreciated

Thanks guys

I think it may be the usage of this theme thats problem. The design is pretty solid.

two things i see:
  1. too simple and not much customization going on
  2. try using the scroll immediately after clicking a menu item

Overall, I think that it lacks color and polish. The lightbox for example looks like the default setup which seems to not flow with your page design (Too much contrast black/white). Change it up with different exit/next/previous buttons or something to match better with your current design.

I’d suggest focusing the other design changes on FAQ and Screens pages. Those looks a little plain and unfinished.

The home screen and contact look pretty good. Only thing I’d suggest is adding a hover effect to the Social Icons to match your other buttons.

Good Luck

Hi everyone thanks for your feedback, I’ve made some changes…

  • Lightbox next, prev and close buttons, uses font inline with site styles
  • FAQ drop down box styles have changed
  • Added opacity hover effect to social media icons
  • Brought out the background patterns a little by raising opacity
  • Completely revamped screens section

How do you think it is looking now?

The reviewer reply stated that a few places to start improvements would be in overall design uniqueness via aspects such as graphics and typography so feedback along those lines would be great.

Thanks for your help so far everyone! :D
