Told my theme is bland, so it got hard rejected. What now

Hi Everyone.

We have had our theme hard rejected. When uploaded the team uploaded our test site as a demo which is probably the reason it was rejected.
We were told the following:

Here is the comment from your Envato Quality team reviewer:


I am afraid this item is pretty poor and quite far from prime ready. It would undoubtedly take a considerable amount of work to get it to a point where we would consider going further with a full review. So I am afraid I will have to hard reject it on this instance.
Examples of areas which look terribly bland and/or unfinished but there are many more:

At the time of upload we were testing some new image caching on this URL so SVG images were not even appearing.

Secondly this theme includes out custom plugin, which is a page builder. It make the theme completely customisable. So its more about the plugin than the theme itself.

So my questions:

  1. If I now go back and update our demo site with nice images and a correctly laid out the site with decent content , can i resubmit it?

  2. Is updating the content enough? Our theme does not have a lot of animation, rather it has a set of 22 modules that an editor can choose from to build each page. These modules can have any colour, font, content needed.

Here is the demo url we provided: https://marrewtest.com

Here are some sites using the same theme:
https://sydneyroaddentalcare.com.au
https://aim4health.com.au/home-page/

Please help

I am sorry but the quality of the design is not up to required standards, improving the content won’t really change it IMHO.

Suggestions
Eliminate the tooth icon above Dental Practice, We make your smile, etc.

Improve look of bar at very top of page

Provide some type of delineation between the We make your smile section and the What we offer section

Our Services section - Improve look/layout of icons - some type of background color(s)

5 dentists section - use a better background photo

Get in touch section - make this look like its own section - different background color - improve layout

A lot of white space between map and Latest Articles

Footer - All text should be white, none black
