Hard reject site template. How to improve my theme. Some help?

Hello all,

I developed an One, Multi page site template for Portfolio, Agencies and Architects.

I need feedback. Can someone help me where I can improve and what is the problem?
I believe that design is good enough to be accepted. I want to understand where are the problems of design, aesthetics, and more.

I need your help, I would not discard a theme not knowing how I can improve it.

Thanks & Best Regards,

I am quite surprised this was hard rejected as it seems really good not to mention different to me.

  • Scrolling is a bit jumping and staggered esp. in FireFox

  • Work info on hover is a bit small and insignificant against big blank image covers (but I get your thinking - take a look at these effects and how well they fill spaces with only a little but bold text http://tympanus.net/Development/HoverEffectIdeas/)

  • Pricing tables info could be better than the basic list currently there.

  • There seems to be a slightly wide area of white space around the content (make sure these are even section to section)


Thanks a lot for the answer.

He was also surprised me a hard reject.
I believed in a soft reject.
Do you think that making these changes can I send the site template again or are too few?

can i use the effects http://tympanus.net/Development/HoverEffectIdeas/) in my commecial template

It sounds like the reviewer expects more features too.

In my opinion it is very ‘real life’ and less’ stock marketplace’ in its design and delivery

Again though I really like it. I would suggest add any new bits and pieces you can think of. Maybe add a sticky nav on the one pager.

Just think versatility and options a bit more than precise feature (although that is in reality the right approach!).

Generally speaking not without either building your own versions or making sure that they are incorporated fully into a design or feature and not a stand alone element.

This also varies from item to item - some you cannot use at all

Thank you so much for the advice.
I will try to add some small features and make some small changes like the ones proposed to me.
I hope that next time thanks to your advice will be a soft reject
