Soft rejection

Hello there guys and gals.

I am trying to figure out the reviewers point here and to tell you the truth i have no idea what he means. I fixed a lot of things but i just don’t have a clue on a few things that he is mentioning. Any feedback would be great. These reviews are from 2 different reviewers.

Here is the theme : http://nitro-studio.com/themes/astrid/#homepage

first rejection:

Soft Rejected

Sorry to say, but this theme is not yet ready to be included in WordPress category. 1. Design elements are not consistent, theme uses more than one. Helpful link: http://freshysites.com/uncategorized/web-design-elements-that-are-often-overlooked/ 2. Design is not aesthetically pleasing. More info: http://alistapart.com/article/the-web-aesthetic 3. Usability is pretty poor. More info: http://www.nngroup.com/topic/web-usability/ 4. Theme seems unfinished too.

second rejection:

Soft Rejected

  1. The overall design and aesthetic quality aren’t ready for ThemeForest. 2. The animations are overkill. 3. Minimal templates can be clean and simple when you manage to handle the white space and details to provide a simple but yet unique template. But if you can’t, it will look like an incomplete template – blank template. 4. In this case, the submitted template is more like a ‘framework’ than a full fledged design. If you’re going with minimalism, you need to make sure all the little details check out.

Any feedback would be awesome, thanks Charlie if you are around would you be kind enough to have a peek and see what the issues are??

Hi there

Anyone???

  1. Unique Tab Slider no one know, other tabs exists. i will include navigation.
    2.200,000 Facebook likes etc section. Background doesn’t gives premium look.
  2. WHAT WE LOVE TO DO check the spacing between content and more button
    LATEST GALLERY ITEMS and WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US have bad usablity

Dear nitrothemes
Your major mistake on this theme using “IMAGE BOX ONE” and “lorem ipsums”. Use some texts from some storybook create attractive titles for sections.

good luck

Thanks guys for the ideas. We will be re doing all the titles and bg images.

Thanks

Lester
