These were the reviewer’s comments:
- There’s a couple of empty divs and unordered lists in your code
- Overall, it has a good starting concept and it seems you’ve aimed for simplicity, but the overall design lacks details in its design that would help it stand out as more unique. At this point, you’ll need to improve the design and make it more unique before it will be ready for ThemeForest
For the first, i’ll just clear the floats with something else than divs and explain that the unordered list is for the quicksand plugin. But the second issue is the one the beats all newcomers What should i improve in terms of design details?
First of all, I must say that your theme is really great! Nice hard work!
Yes, indeed, this design needs to be unique enough to stand out in the marketplace, as I have seen alot of similar concept theme in tf marketplace.
Of course! you can do it, and I believe it would be a great theme.
few things that I think, it may make your theme ” unique ”.
1 – Add a very thin cute frame for gallery images.
2 – Zoom effect whenever one drag the mouse over the images. ( Make it an option from wp panel, whether one wants it or do not want it )
3 – Multiple color choice
4 – Background and its pattern choice
5 – Multiple Font options ( Google fonts )
6 – Easy to change the h1- h6 height from wp admin panel.
I understand that you are inspired by Orman for this design, but make it totally unique concept! I believe if you focus on my 2nd point, then it would be great! Because I have not seen this so far on TF like this.
If you want me to share the example of what kind of zoom effect I am talking about, then I can share the link where I have this effect.
Thank you! Good luck and take care!
Thanks for your time!
At this point the theme is only html, so 3-6 will remain for later. But i will take your first suggestions and add some cool effect over thumbnails roll overs and see what i can do about images.
I also started to design a home page with a better slider..
Great! Looking forward to see your awesome theme in tf marketplace!
i love your theme. hopefully you can fix it to their specs and get it uploaded. well done.
I have to say i really like the simplicity of your design… to me it looks perfect…
Personally i would not change anything except maybe add a different effect for the picture hover… but even that is a matter of taste.
Adding the options for changing colors and fonts that GopalDasa suggested would probably increase the change to get this approved.

It reminds me a lot of the minimalistic designs of the famous cargo collective and thats the reason why I really love this theme. I would also add some more features and maybe a cool hover effect for the portfolio site f.e. http://webdesignandsuch.com/jquery-sliding-boxes-and-captions/ or something like http://buildinternet.com/2009/03/sliding-boxes-and-captions-with-jquery/
Good luck with it. I would definitly buy it, if it will be accepted by the staff.
