Too much red, tires the eye quickly. Red + black not the best combination either.

Looks great! But, if that got rejected what others can expect? :) The quality bar has risen even higher :)
Really? I do not see this “highest” level on accepted items .. Many of them are even very low quality …

I was wondering about that too… How come other themes pass and this one didn’t? It’s quite unique in my eyes.

My suggestion:

I think the space between header and subheader in “The team” and “This is what we do” sections is a bit much, try making it smaller.

Navigation – smaller font size + all caps.

Portfolio – “Click to open” text didn’t resonate with me, it’s like an excessory cognitive overload. Makes you think – Should I click on it? Why is there a note?

Overall, really nice style! Good luck with it!

I would have the body copy font changed to something else with lower x-height.

Animations on menu is a bit rough.

I don’t like animation for the images – too much.

Work on your typography at About section and visual hierarchy at Elements section.

Overall – nice template, I like the Montserrat font choice and details!

You can write HTML5 and CSS3 without errors and you should. If code validates it will not break in IE and you will certainly avoid many cross-browser issues.

Good start, however it will need more work.

1. Animations are jugged.

2. Add more spacing at the bottom of sections.

3. The text for tabs on “We design creative interface for different devices” is too large which creates a bit of chaos between all text elements in this section.

4. Too much line-height for body text in the same section. Make it tighter and text smaller.

5. Same goes for text in about section. If you have red on black which makes it hard to read, make the text larger for it to be read/skimmed easier.

6. Quotes section – you have quote marks hanging above quote text. Is it deliberately so? Even if so, it looks out of place. Move the quote marks on the left side of the quote or think of other representation of the quote to identify the section.

7. Images look squashed at tablet size. They need to resize in width and height.

Love the portfolio images, btw! Can you share where you got them from?

Honestly, I really like it!

Some suggestions (IMHO):

1. I would remove the slider on the right and let it slide as usual

2. Add more space between navigation and portfolio items

3. Try adding a semi-transparent overlay of say, black color to make portfolio less standout. The menu and portfolio are contrasting too much with each other.

4. Shortcodes page feels a bit unfinished. What could be “finished” about shortcodes, right? :) Try a full width white layout, the boxed one looks too tight when close to the menu. Same advice for Contact page.

5. For the Blog page – add more posts, audio, video with images, to show the functionality and possibilities better.

6. Not sure if I like white on green menu items. Not legible enough.

Good luck! You have a pretty good theme and concept!

Sincerely, Kate

The theme needs to be high quality. Take a look at themes here on TF and compare yours to them. And see how you could make yours better or at least on par with them, then make it unique :)

I meant most elements – rhombuses look generic because many themes use them here.
