what's reasons of Hard Rejected my HTML template

hello !
After much hope for the first HTML template upload, I received a hard reject notice from Envato today
Would anyone be available to have a quick look at the demo and
what i need to do to solve this issue?
Here’s the demo :demo
Thank you!

Your design is Good, i think the main reason why you got hard rejected is because there’s already tons of this kind of Resume template and yours doesn’t bring anything new to the table in regards of the resume/portfolio genre, the more niche your design is, the higher chance of acceptance, the more saturated the category of your design is the higher chance of rejection.

try something different

best regards.

Your design is beautiful. I think the main reason for rejection is that it looks very similar to the products in the market. Good luck. Yours truly.

Just search the things similar to the one you have posted. You have designed a good thing, but if there are any reasons of rejection, you can find out them by checking out things similar to yours.

If you have made one thing, you can make it better as well as you can create different other things as well, which are needed in the market.

So you don’t have to be discouraged by this rejection and continue your positive work as you have done now …

Best of Luck!

The design is a 6/10 it’s a good starting point but it must be improved to be approved.

Thanks a lot tameez_say for you reply

Dark and pink destroy your template eye chasing/ visual mode totally unexpected.
Need to improve your item design quality there is not enough unique design in your items.
This isn’t looking good at all http://prntscr.com/o26kcm
Spacing & alignment issue, hierarchy still in your item need to improve it.

Thanks for your review. Really helpful.Can you please tell me the mistakes I did in spacing & alignment and hierarchy?

I’m curious me too about Spacing & alignment issue, can you explain?


Totally in agreement with @unlockdesign

Unfortunately this is not yet ready to be accepted in this market

There is a great lack of work in the choice of colors and contrast, on the other hand the typographic combination requires improvements so that it can be adapted to the targeted segment.

The spacing and alignment has to be improved, it is necessary to add some base to be able to work on it more easily. Even correcting all this the project in general lacks quality in necessary to continue working a long time.

I encourage you to keep trying and get where you want to go


Spacing & Alignment Issue
I have little explain about spacing with some screenshots!
http://prntscr.com/o29qtf Would you think this in center ?

Hi @Schiocco

I think I have a high design level and I think to understand, but only partially, what mean “Spacing & Alignment Issue”. I receive every time this message from the reviewers as first soft reject, without any screenshot. I’m never able to understand what they refer to, so after years, my idea is that they are actually writing “the design must be improved”, that is another thing.

So, thank you very much for the screenshots, now I can have some more confirmation. In your example I think I understand the issues:

  1. https://prnt.sc/o29qtf
    The space between the “I am we” and the text is larger than the space between the text and the social icons.

  2. https://prnt.sc/o29s1b and https://prnt.sc/o29sz4
    The gradient transparent line underneath the title do not have enough space

  3. https://prnt.sc/o29t6p
    The container space is different, top larger than the bottom one.

  4. https://prnt.sc/o29ts2
    Last logo is bigger.

Are these the issues you’re referring to?
Thank you! Regards

Thanks a lot for your feedback,you’re right this project needs to more work

thanks a lot for your help
