Hi, Well this is my 2nd theme and 2nd theme to be rejected, I’d appreciate your advice on what to change…

Reply from reviewer: 1. Your template has a good start but, as we have high standards, you will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as graphics, layout, colors, etc. 2. The overall design is dated. 3. It doesn’t look like a premium theme.

Thanks

Needs some work, first, the logo. It doesn’t work, I would redesign. Also, all these images, especially the one you use in the header, do you have full licensing to use them? I am not a fan of the header all together. Also, the nav drop-down looks like is is not a part of the theme, it is just to different.

Overall, it is to simply, the background effects are nice, but the actual information design is to simple.

It needs a lot of work, keep on working at it.

I agree with the reviewer, especially on the 2nd point. Colors, typo, graphics (background, logo) need many changes. You can have a look at some successful themes here and try to see what mkes a good design. Anyway, good luck :)

Try this. :)

And also, have in mind that many people come here and want to buy a working template, serving their purpose – so it really needs to be more universal in terms of usage, and – at the same time – pretty unique by itself. Try to think about what would you want to see in your theme to buy it.

Good luck!

Personally, I’d say that the glowing colors don’t fit, the menu needs improvements (size, lines, aligment…) and the font has nothing special, it’s just weird. I would recommend another font (there are many articles about that, google can help you). The background is better than the previous one.

It’s just my 2 cents, you should keep on working, and take your time to read, look at other templates, designers galleries, etc.. Easy to say, I know, but it’s really worth doing that :)
