Sent GreatDiane and vekude….
Hey guys / gals, I’m planning to have a chat with all the people interested next week. You will receive an email with more information.THank you all!
I haven`t receive your email, Daniel…. ???
Hi, Daniel, I speak spanish, is my main language Can you provide more information?
as a standalone PSD file the standards for those are stupidly high.
As a PSD author I tend to disagree here, the standards are just middle.
- You have a waste of spacing above the header.
- Below the slider: if you don’t use any graphics to draw the three columns below, you need to create strong grid/spacing relations between the elements to draw a nice layout based on grid and proportions. The Read more buttons aren’t equally spaced above. In a real website those buttons won’t be on the same row (or at least they shouldn’t, except if the content of the three columns is equal).
- The inside pages are a bit boring and I spot low usability there (“users scan pages, they don’t read them”). Too much text presented without a proper layout representation (that’s one of the main reasons it won’t be accepted).
- Use a grid. On 4 pages you have 4 different layouts which breaks the foundamental Repetition requirement. For such a small website too big versatility in terms of columns is confusing to the user. You also perform unequal spacing around the layout.
- The template has too few element styles demonstrated. Even if it’s approved as a PSD , I don’t think it would be successful. The homepage and the overall design is bit unappealing.
- I would give more suggestions, but those are too low-res screenshots you provided.
So, I think the PSD standards are fine, it’s just that the template (and probably most templates that apply for the PSD category, as well as many templates I see are being rejected in the HTML or WP category) breaks some foundamental design principles. We’re not speaking taste here.With that said, you demonstrate some nice design skill, which when developed, would lead to a nice layout.
Hi, and thank you so much for your critique. I´ve used a grid (16) maybe I did not aligned very well the elements. Respect of the style, I was trying to make someting simple, not so boring
it’s not about being forced to code the PSD to HTML /CSS, but it is definitely a good tip the reviewer has given you.
This is mainly due to the killer requirements to get accepted into the PSD category. Instead, you can code this template and upload it to the Site Templates category, where you have much more possibilities of getting accepted.Good luck
Thank you, hmm I can´t code it wo that´s why I´ve uploaded as PSD file
I´ve uploaded a PSD template, please see the images :
Some Notes from the inspector:
We’re sorry, your item Bluemedia has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:
“This is more suitable for site template category and has the potential to get accepted as site template. I recommend to directly convert this into HTML /CSS and re-submit.”
I thought that PSD templates can be just PSD file,....or not? Do I have to code it?
thank you Broof and TahaH-Studio!! T_T I can´t believe how many minutes I was spending looking for the assets lol.
Can anyone please tell me where is the Envato assets library? I just can´t find it :/ I see in the author dashboard, but I can´t see the Author resources link.
1.The lines at the top, not sure but you can change the thickness of both. 2. visual hierarchy: you need to balance the design, actually it looks too busy because the photos (heavy elements) are only in the left, Did you tried to design the wireframe first in a paper? and 3. For typography maybe you can try not using too different fonts?
Good luck Diana.
Are you sure you are uploading the right files with sizes? I mean this happened to me , maybe if you show a screenshot??
Hi, this is my opinion: if you are using black font is not necesary that you use drop shadow, try adding fancy effects, I think the image is nice (front and background) but you need to add more details.
