And I would say that the template has hope. In my opinion, you have to look at the micro level of the design, and improve it. In other words, focus on polishing the details in the template – many of them could use some improvements. Otherwise, the whole design will look like unfinished work.

onioneye has hit the nail on the head. Always look at the smallest of details, and polish them up. Buyers really do look for them, and I love it when an author goes about it this way.

This is where it has become crazy with the multi themes. The designers (even if they are a large-ish team), are spreading their designs so thin across the gazillion different styles bundled. What happened to the designers who fine-tuned, and polished a single design to the maximum?

Oh hey. Those were the days.

If you can afford it get a MacBook Pro Retina Display.

Amen to that. I’m still in awe of the screen, 12 months on from getting it. And it’s a powerful beast!! which is why I use it hooked up to a Thunderbolt display when designing (because it has bags of memory etc..), and then by itself when moving to code.

Waaaaaaay too much animation dude. A little more subtlety needed.

This insanity has to stop soon. Page builders and a few different header variants (Slider, Static Image etc..) I can live with, but I think it’s really unfair to have these ‘300 themes in one’ priced the same as ‘standard’ WP themes. Like has been mentioned, how can we compete here?? The buyers are going to go for more bang for their buck, and it further devalues many authors on here, who don’t want to create these monster themes!!

I had a comment, and 5 star review from a buyer recently which I think nailed it -

“Very beautiful, well designed theme with good support. Not a whole lot of features, but what it does it does very well”.

I don’t want to have to design & build these monster themes thank you very much, I want to carry on taking my time to create great designs, with enough theme options to make a buyer happy enough.

Let’s not be having this conversation again in 6 months time Envato, hey?

cheers

Have to second that on the preview images?! Remember you’re selling this preview to folks worldwide. Having an attack helicopter hovering over a war-zone is just really odd?!? Something a little more subtle dude!

Quite a few dated elements throughout. Again, colour scheme needs improvement.

Hi mesunil2010,

Sorry to be the guy with the wake up call, but it’s just not as good as you think it is :(

It’s far from a Premium product, and you need to look again at the overall aesthetic. White space, alignment, colour choices, general flow of the page, it all seems a little disjointed, and a cut & paste job.

I’m not being a douche, just a realist here.

Good luck!!

It might be what you felt looking at theme, but there are more facts.

White Space, alignment , color ever thing can be changed. Its just a demo page created using theme builder , its not whole theme. Each block can be designed has unique design. I am not saying my theme is best, but it has the things needed to be premium . I am just saying that themeforest should give detailed reason for rejection. That’s all, no hard feelings. :)

You have to bear in mind that the reviewer will look at the preview you have, just as a buyer would, so it really needs to look as tight as possible. You have to present it in its initial form as well as you can.

And, yes, I agree the reviewers replies can be a little vague sometimes, but they have so much to review they can’t be holding your hand all the way through the process.

Many thanks
