This will be my third attempt at getting into theme forest. However i can understand why the first two were nocked back. They were really just stuff I made when I was learning to go from PSD /PNG to HTML .

So, what do you think of this one?:

I image this theme being used for buisness, possibly some more “upclass” freelancers and manufacturers of luxury goods…

Do you think it has a large enough audience? What do you think its chances of being accepted (in all its XHTML and CSS glory) are?

Don’t mind if I do…

Yea, I see what you mean. Like break it up with some images quotes etc But how is the design, content aside?

Do you think I should offer colors other than black, brown and red?

The design is not just header and background you know… it’s how Content looks also ;)

I think the text would be okay if you increased the line height and like someone else said added a block quiote in there.

Other than that it’s pretty basic, but isn’t that the point of your design? If so you’ve got it fown quite nicely. Perhaps a few more images…thats it.

Your base design is a very simple and clean idea but it won’t be accepted.

Ask yourself “Who is going to buy this?” – As it is, there is a very very small audience that might consider buying this because it only uses text (writers or similar). You need to add features, etc.

I would suggest that you take a look at some of the successful templates here at themeforest and around the web as far as content ratio’s, elements, etc. are done.
