Hello everyone,

Hope you are doing all fine.

I uploaded my 2nd HTML Template on themeforest which is converted from one of my accepted PSDs and I got this written on my soft reject.

  1. TYPOGRAPHIC HIERARCHY: The typographic hierarchy of this item requires additional work. For more information, please read: http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/understanding-typographic-hierarchy--webdesign-11636
  1. SPACING AND ALIGNMENT: There are spacing and alignment issues in this item. Please make sure that all elements are aligned properly and spacing is consistent from section to section. Here are some articles with more information regarding negative space and proper spacing: http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/using-white-space-or-negative-space-in-your-designs--webdesign-3401,\ http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/adding-space-to-your-designs--webdesign-14836

This is the link to my template: Link

Its the same as the PSD (hights, margins, paddings, font sizes) but still if you can give me a tip or 2 how to improve it i would really appreciate it.

Best Regards,
Gino

  1. TYPOGRAPHIC HIERARCHY -
    You can’t use font-weight: 700; for Montserrat if you didn’t included it in the first place, you linked only Montserrat 400 and not 700 through Google Fonts, which makes font-weight: 700 act like " < strong > " and it ruined the overall typographic hierarchy, notice how the heading and button text looks dull. I would add some letter-spacing to button text too.

Stick to one capitalization style, why are you going from default text capitalization to sudden
"text-tranform: uppercase" and then back to default capitalization, as example you used default h4 capitalization in " Training Courses " section and you never used it again.

Another thing is that you are using more different font-sizes and font-families than it’s necessary, stick to a few of them, as example, you used Open Sans in “Pricing Plans” section for plans and it automatically ruined the overall Typographic Hierarchy, why didn’t you stick to Montserrat?

  1. SPACING AND ALIGNMENT:

You are being “too much creative” with section paddings. I really can’t help you much about this.
Change “Training Courses” padding-top to 160, since “Gallery” sections padding-bottom is set to 0.
Now, another thing is that you’re having this “overlapping” elements, like the one in “Latest Events” section and they’re the problem and one of the reasons why reviewer told you to work on spacing and aligment.

There are also problems with Visual Hierarchy, but as review didn’t mention anything, I’ll not go in discussion about it.

Good luck and don’t give up!
