This is extremely helpful. I always had difficulty finding them when I first joined, and still haven’t read all of them after 2 months. Thanks!
Congrats! You’re well deserved. Hope one day I can reach that, too.
Thank you so much Nun Kwon! It’s approved!
Thanks UnknownDepths! That’s really helpful. I’ll try playing with shadows to see if it works out. BTW do you have any idea what’s going on with overlapping shapes?
This is so TRUE! We all put hearts in our works. The more efforts we put into them, the more likely we will get obsessed with our own items. Sometimes if I put them aside for a while, and when I come back, I feel embarrased by my own works…
I haven’t seen your file to make a determination, but from my experience; certain items that I thought were awesome (that got rejected) now look like I wasn’t even trying.
So if you have no idea how to change your design, maybe leaving it for a while until your frustration fades will be a good choice. You may have a whole new view of your works when you come back.
cooledition saidWOW! This is inspiring. Now whatever reasons I may have to give up, they just disappear. I hope that 1 year later I can also achieve something like that. And Logomount: Let both of us keep working hard and never give up!
In November – Dicember 2011 i spent like $300 on stocks i wanted to use in my flyers, i was prepring myseft for the christmas season. I designed 7 flyers with those stocks and all those 7 flyers were hard rejected. I was 10x angrier than you, believe me, but i didnt give up and now i have 100 files in my portfolio and graphicriver is my full time job
Please don’t. I understand you must be angry now, and I have experienced something the same bad if not worse.
I have one button set getting soft rejected for 5-6 times (yes, I’m not exaggerating), after all the adjustments were done it didn’t even look like my original concept, and at last it was hard rejected.
Another set of button was accused of being based on other items when I felt it was very original. I opened a ticket and got my answer that although it had a good quality, it was in a style they were trying to restrict thus they didn’t want it.
weren’t I angry? Yes, pretty much. But after all it’s just a marketplace, their opinions just represent what they want. After getting familiar with the process, you can just upload something that might be following their rules for a chance and your rejected items can still be used elsewhere. Please don’t be affected by the rejections too much!
Hi everybody, I just got the following item soft rejected:
The reviewer’s opinion is that
- 1.The gradients could use some additional work.
- 2. clean up some of the vectors. For example there are many overlapping shapes that are the same and cause the file to be larger and run slower than necessary.
Could you guys please give me some advice? Like how should the gradient be changed, and what’s wrong with overlapping shapes? Thanks so much!
