No feedback apart from: The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time.

Is it just me or was this review rushed through, or perhaps I’ve got the wrong end of the stick!

It is kind of mind blowing how you could have your item reviewed within 40 minutes :)

Some feedback
Generally, it feels too cluttered to me. For example, there’s a lot going on on the home page above the fold:

I would also have a look at the vertical rhythm, typography and how you use white space (forgive my “mouse handwriting”):

Very difficult to read some of the text on smaller screens/smartphones:

Thanks graphic_dev, appreciate your feedback – and I kinda like your mouse-handwritting :-)

I’ll take on board what you say, do the other homepage examples feel any better – for example this one was designed to be a little ‘lighter’ in terms of impact/clutter?

Agree! Not much else I can say – the font-size is a bit all over the place, especially on the slider.

I really appreciate you taking the time to look, any more feedback? – I can take it :-)

MOD – Wonder if you could cancel my support ticket – #MJN-246-62706 Can we lock-up or delete this thread as I’m getting straight back to work on these issues

I think graphic_dev has hit the nose with the cluttered layout, differences in font-sizes and general lack of ‘white-space’. A fantastic bit of feedback and i suppose I was a little surprised that there wasn’t at least a one-liner from my reviewer (but I guess they get loads to look through so time is of the essence!!!)

Thanks to all and kindest regards,

Garry
