My wp conversion was rejected (http://wp.sidart.sidmad.com/q-works-wp/) and I redesigned it now need opinions. Note that the horizontal borders between content groups that starts with headlines aren’t included in psd, here’s the image: http://wp.sidart.sidmad.com/q-works-wp/wp-content/themes/q-works/images/q-works.jpg
I two am a fellow reject. So, keep that in mind when viewing my humble opinion.
As far as your designs go, I do think that the graphics are cute, but I’m not sure of who the site is for. The graphics seem to be for an action cartoon show. If that is what you intend to use this site for then the rest of the dummy content should support that theory. Also, some of the icons seem a little blurry and just not sharp enough on my screen.
I’ve been rejected three times and I’m about to go up for a 4th blow . I think it wont take more than 1-2 more blows for me to get it all right. With each blow I learn how much more I need to do to get it right. So, my opinions are based on lessons that I’ve learned and are still learning.
These are my thoughts. Hope it helps!
Thanks for your comment. I saw you have a thread asking for opinions too, I think I’ll comment to your thread in return About the “action cartoon show” look, I just wanted to get rid of the old too much colored dark look of the background and give it a more illustration feel, while applying a nice color scheme to overall design (I think the BG made you to think that way mostly). I have in mind to prepare a comic-cartoon looking theme too for a while, but not this one. Besides, there will be gradient and pattern BG alternatives too. And about the blurry icons, I suggest you to refresh the page or they can be blurry because of the jpeg. I wish you success about your theme, and thanks again for the input
