Hi, Please explain me the comments of the Review team. Mainly the 3 bold portions. Thanks in advance.



Minimal templates can be clean and simple when you manage to handle the white space and details to provide a simple but yet unique template. But if you can’t, it will look like an incomplete template – blank template.

In this case, the submitted template is more like a ‘framework’ than a full fledged design. If you’re going with minimalism, you need to make sure all the little details check out.

Basically, if you’re going to design a minimal theme, you need to make it unique enough and consistent enough in the details that the entire theme feels purposeful. If you don’t give enough attention to detail a minimal theme can easily feel generic or unfinished.

Take a look at several other minimal theme designs on the marketplace and learn how they successfully create white space and consistent details throughout their theme. Don’t copy them, because that will get your work rejected again… but study methods of how you see it being done and funnel what you learn into your design.

It may take a few times to get it right, but keep working at it until you get it. Good luck.
