Hello Folks!

Well, recently my site template was refused from ThemeForest but I don’t know what is wrong with it. You can find my site template on http://matheusmariano.com/themeforest/soulfly/.

Thanks. ^^

It’s just too simple and generic. You need to make it stand out with unique features and improved design.

The typography also needs work, try a different typeface and play with sizing.

Well, Im not a professional and Im actually in the same situation as you are with my own theme but I thought I could give yours a try.

There is no “wrong” in your theme, but I think you could improve the theme on many aspects by developing each part of it more. Also, think about your theme as an end users site. Less “real content” and too much “lorem ipsum” might make the theme less interesting.

I made a quick sketch at: http://openthemer.com/soulfly.png

Good luck!

For sure your reviewer have pointed you some Envato Wiki regarding rejections along with some instructions on how to improve your design skill on various feedback websites and tutorials. All authors went through all this. The first approved item is the hard battle you must win here, then there is tough competition.

Just to let you know, I have almost one year experience with this marketplace, I have reviewed many themes here already and pointed out many issues according to my skill level, you can have a look at my previous forum messages along with my items.

Good luck.

Thank you very much, guys! I needed to know with more details what I should do to improve my template. And too, I needed bit of inspiration to continue designing on ThemeForest. (:

Well, I will back to clipboard to redesign some aspects in my template.
