Hi I have a soft rejection. Here is the reviewer’s comments:

We apologize but unfortunately the current flyer design is a bit messy and disorganized. The elements and graphics used here need to be cleaned up. The composition needs some organization and elements cannot be randomly placed in the design.

Clean up the typography style. Try taking a look over the following links for a little help on font pairings:

Here’s what I had: \\

Here’s after I took out parrot, flip flops, beach ball to see if it clears up the clutter. Let me know if I should clear the margaritas and starfish as well for a more clean look: \\

Funny to see many other flyers with all these objects behind the model. I was just trying to be different. I meant for the flip flops and beach to seem like it was carried away with the wave … I didn’t randomly throw it on the flyer and hope it stuck. The bubbles and starfish are meant to be floating up to decorate the space that is missing in between the party and summer text. Margaritas serve as an arch for the text info and date kind of like book ends. Maybe I was trying to hard and it seems cluttered as opposed to flyers with a bunch of items behind a model which is easy to do.

Anyway any help would be great. Also is the font pairing that bad?

Thanks

according to me problem is: 1) the way slippers are shown 2) the way water splash is shown 3) model seems like thinking may be some other 4) main title looks flat. introduce some 3d effect with texture may be. 5) star fish may not be placed symetrically. may be a large size star fish with its legs lying on title etc.

if you can work upon this factors i hope it should be accepted.

all the best, satgur

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I really appreciate it! Lol, all that hard work trying to fix this only to have them end up saying: “You need to work over this concept further here, considering the general composition and layout as the file is too similar to other items on the site and needs making more original and different through the use of alternate typefaces and compositional styles and themes.”

Really wish they would have told me that from the start so I could have scrapped the whole idea and started over :(

you still can comeup on this by adding and twisting! i have faced similar situations and i have totally revamped mine but keeping same topic and theme. Run your mind horses and try to find mistakes in your flyer and see it from user perspective. U will find it is similar to others out there. so how can u make it unique? search net etc etc

Thanks Twisted DNA, well you can have the file as well as anyone else who would like it, for free when you go to my graphic river profile and go to my facebook page. Just like my page to get it for free. Should be under “Free Downloads” button.

Also thanks Satgur for the many advices. I think I will give it away for free since I just recently made a new facebook page dedicated to just my designs and could use some likes lol. I think I will try to come up with a new idea if I ever do decide to make a summer party flyer. Right now there are so many summer party flyers that I rather spend my time making other types of flyers.

But I appreciate your help very much! :D

Oh and twisted Dna, the water i made myself using water splashes and had to manually manipulate them to fit the water wrap around that I drew first. Not sure if I can post links on here but if you need the model just message me and i can give the link.
