  1. Your design has an interesting starting concept, but it needs significant improvements in terms of aesthetics and attention to details.

As higher quality items become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.

Where to start?

  • Visual hierarchy.

  • Better design consistency.

  • An overall spacing.

  • Color contrast and schemes.

Here are some resources for you:


Not on sale yet, but I’m so proud to achieve this decisive step. Can’t believe until know, it was a long path developing this project, hope I can get it through.

Thanks in advance,
