So we received the form reply:

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.

We were able to find a few technical issues and get those fixed, but I’m guessing the reviewer is saying we are way off with the design here. We want to improve the theme and are willing and ready to put in the work. Do you all feel we are somewhat close and can make a hand full of cosmetic changes (new nav bar, reduce lines, different font stack, improved page layouts, etc.), or will the design have to be entirely changed here? Looking for some constructive feedback. Oddly enough, we put this through a testing focus group before submitting and it received fairly high marks. http://redesign.themeleaf.com/

Hi,

I’ll throw in some points that I’ve picked up on…

  • Social Media Icons in header could do with a subtle CSS3 transition on them
  • Have you thought about using a subtle background pattern possibly?
  • The nav is a little odd, you have the main nav items (ie; Features, Pages) in a regular font-style, but then the dropdown items in a bold of sorts?! I personally dont think it sits too well, and again get a subtle transition on the dropdowns, not so harsh on the eye.
  • Some of the stock images used throughout the template are a little meh! Good, quality imagery can be key on these kinds of templates. Take a look on Flickr for images listed under Creative Commons, loads of really nice imagery.
  • The sections in the body have no breathing room. Everything is too tightly packed. Make good use of Whitespace.
  • The heading font used is a little bland, but that could just be a personal preference.
  • The logos used I would say are a little poop!
  • There seems to be a hella lot of this style on themes on TF now, so you really have to pull it out of the bag to compete.

Hope some of these pointers can help out.

thanks
