I’ve been rejected countless amounts of times, but something propelled me to keep moving on. Now, however, I feel like rejection is inevitable because I feel as though I perfected this template:

Please take a look at it, feedback is greatly appreciated.

Here is the feedback I received from ThemeForest:

I think you should add more white space and change the value of “line-height” to a higher one. And maybe, adding some color to the design could be a good thing.

Hi there,

There are a lot of improvements I can think of…

  • The colors used are very dull.
  • The whole design of the slider is not up to scratch.
  • The footer padding at the top is inconsistent.
  • The padding under the slider is inconsistent.
  • Bad contrast between the sidebar and the background.
  • Every drop shadows is too dark
  • The menu rollover is kinda lame to be honest.
  • Everything is grey and dull, no contrast.
  • There is nothing unique about it.
  • Bad spacing almost on every page.
  • Typography needs improving in terms of design and color.
  • Logo design is not good enough.

Good luck!

Thank a lot! I am confused when you say “padding is inconsistent”. Can you please be more concise? Thanks!

Look at the padding at the bottom of the footer then look at the padding at the top.

I know you are not reviewing my theme but thanks for your list! Some things to keep in mind.

For the footer, basically vertically centering the content would do the trick right?
