Thanks in advance.

I’m on a 60Mb connection connection, and it took 9 seconds to load both times I loaded the website. Problem for sure, now other people may not have that problem, but I reloaded it just to make sure it wasn’t me.

There seems to also be some heavy animations or something because as I scrolled down the page, the theme froze for atleast 3 seconds. Not sure if that was ajax loading more info or what, but it was unpleasant.

I didn’t do any code checking, I just wanted to view the theme myself. Honest opinion.

  • Load time takes forever

  • You have inline styling which needs to go

  • small issues but still avoidable

  • auto play music is quite annoying

  • typography and design basics e.g. alignment, spacing and consistency ALL need a lot of work

  • the design is very outdated and the concept is very overdone and if you want to submit a one page site then you really need to create soemhting unique and stand out to it
