Hi Asalah,

It’s hard to judge the template at its current stage. I think you need to spend more than 1 day on this.

Here is a good example which was posted recently based on readability. http://themeforest.net/item/read-responsive-html5-minimalist-template/full_screen_preview/3772717

Any theme that focuses on great typography and readability, is going to be great. Don’t mistake it’s simplicity into thinking its going be a quick and easy job.

Do what your eyes tell you. If you are in doubt of any element, change it. Don’t start tilting your head around to see if it looks better in different angles (I’ve done this many times). This is one of the things that will help you to create great design.

Show us what you have in a few more days.

Based on what I see there, you still need to improve your spacing and choice of fonts. They are too crowded and the fonts are a bit too ‘common’. Perhaps you should use something else for headings.

Also, the quotation doesn’t look nice. It just doesn’t fit the design at all. Good luck improving and don’t give up!

I agree with jaynesh, it’s too early to tell. In my opinion, get all your elements and widgets and etc. laid out on the page first. Basically get all that stuff covered / at least in mind before you worry about the design too too much. Account for everything, and then try to build an attractive design around it.
