Hello everybody,

My tempate was rejected with the following reason:

This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria

With the following message:

Right now your template does not provide the necessary design quality to compete in the marketplace. Please pay attention to graphic's details, alignment, element placements and implementation of typography in the design, balance of spacing/padding and how to utilize the white space.

Theme url:http://www.esade-design.com/wordpress/

Any advice will be very much appreciated. Thank a lot!

Best regards,

Art-Jan

Hello,

I think you should work more on it and invest more effort and labour into this template. Currently it looks empty and unfinished. For example, why not to fill it with some well-designed content? For example, Portfolio page shows just one small image (it looks rather thumbnail than full size) even without enlargement option, text is absent (three short words and button are not enough).

Full width page is empty at all. Potential user/buyer should have an idea how his/her website may look, not everyone has rich imagination and is able to refill in mind the empty box with potential content.

I would also rethink the colour gamma, actually it is just grey+grey+grey (apart a home page that offers some light blue).

Home page (once again because of lack of content) looks unbalanced, sidebar is longer than the main box and it creates strong feeling of unbalanced look of the whole page. Same for rest of pages…

I think there are not enough features on current template.

And you will need to work on typography (for example, it will be good to change either white for the text or blue for the background on slider) and on design in general.

Wish you good luck!

Oh, for now, your design looks kinda empty and not so premium at all. You should definately tweak graphic presentation of the theme itself. Also, you should add various page templates. And what about shortcodes?

Btw, I hate those borders.
