I’ve been working away since I last posted and now I’ve made it look like this:

http://themes.danwalker.com/premiere-html/

I still have to fix the issue where the separator bar and title don’t line up (they work on the latest version of Chrome for me) – so I’m aware of that.

The above isn’t finished as I’m still working on content and minor tweaks, but feedback in any form is appreciated.

Cheers, Dan

Thanks Scott,

I forgot to say logo is on my list as well haha. I’ll make those chances, except I quite like the orange dotted lines under the link but I’ll try without too – it just makes their clickability more obvious.

Cheers, Dan

Instead of the underline, how about a nice little link icon next to the title?

How’s that looking in comparison to

?

Also, I don’t do logo’s, as you can tell. Most things should be fixed and about done now.

Main font is very bad from my point of view.

Hmm thanks Scott, but I’m unsure of how else to really lay that section out?

It looks a little odd vertically but that’s just how it sits. The top row is centered as it’s just a title and description so it has to stay like that.

As for the second row it does look out of place but I want to use icons there and I can’t think of how to fit them in without throwing off the rest of the alignment.

And fine, I’ll lose the orange dots but I love ‘em :(

After some playing I submitted a new version, hoping that even if it was declined I’d get some good feedback. My reviewer did provide some useful feedback, namely that I have some whitespace issues (after measuring screenshots in Photoshop, I’ve seen where I’m inconsistent) and secondly that it needs polish.

Something that gives me hope is: “increase in the polish of the various aspects of the theme may just swing the decision in your favor. Right now, it doesn’t feel like a premium theme due to the lack of attention to details.”.

I’m writing a list of where my whitespace is inconsistent. I’m going to remove all spacing from everything, then go through each type of object and get the margins and padding right.

After I’ve done that, I’m going to add polish. I’m thinking things such as; more content, better sub pages (my index file is the best looking, the others don’t have as much attention to detail I admit) and some nice little effects.

Question: One thing I tried to achieve the other day but failed, is fade-in’s.

http://themes.danwalker.com/premiere-html/

If you mouseover one of the four thumbnails under recent work (or flickr thumbs in footer) you’ll see the border instantly changes. How can I make that gradually happen over say 0.5 seconds? I tried using some CSS properties such as -webkit-transition but I just couldn’t get it working and it kept happening instantly? Am I on the right track?

I’m hoping little extras like that around the site will give it the polish it needs. Please note the hosted version isn’t the latest version as of Feb 9th 1200 GMT .

Cheers, Dan

How can I make that gradually happen over say 0.5 seconds? I tried using some CSS properties such as -webkit-transition but I just couldn’t get it working and it kept happening instantly? Am I on the right track?

First, remove the :hover style. Transitions are applied directly on the element selector, not on pseudo selectors:

.img-border {
-webkit-transition: all 0.5s ease-in 0s;
-moz-transition: all 0.5s ease-in 0s;
-o-transition: all 0.5s ease-in 0s;
-ms-transition: all 0.5s ease-in 0s;
transition: all 0.5s ease-in 0s;
}
