Hello guys,

We got a soft reject on this https://goo.gl/eRon5W with the well know message that does not tell too much :frowning:

Unfortunately, WordPress has higher standards in terms of aesthetics. 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.

We are paying attention to typography and details in general but seems there is smth we missed. We’ll be grateful if you can share your feedback.

Thanks a lot,
Zoutula

In my honest opinion, your theme has nothing fresh in terms of design to bring to the table. It lacks current design trends, althought this is not mainly important, in my opinion your theme still looks a bit generic. Sometimes is not typography, not the details not the icon, but for eg, your layout. I may have not have a theme aproved in themeforest, but this was my two cents. Good luck with approval, UxiThemes.

It is a beautiful theme indeed! I needed a theme for a tyre shop the other day and there were no simple clean good ones on here.

I am surprised it was rejected as I see a lot worse on here.

Many industrial type business need simple clean good looking themes. Not every organisation is suited to a arty type website. Perhaps your theme is not themeforesty enough but submit it to another theme-market (e.g: templatemonster) and you will do very well with this.

Or If you want to resubmit try adding a few other niches. Themeforest loves multipurpose - however you will have alot of competition in that category.

Thanks a lot! We start working on this having in mind some real automotive businesses. It’s a provocation to stick with the niche requests … I mean to keep the theme clean and good looking and to add also functional features that a car shop/tyre shop would use. Anyway we’ll get again through all elements to make sure it’s pixel perfect and we’ll better explain to reviewers the approach. Of course it has nothing to do with a theme for a creative niche … Thanks!
