Thank you for your encouragement GFXsupport – i’m normally quite apt in brushing these kind of things off… i’m just stumped how standards are unevenly distributed throughout the marketplace.
I mean, how can a PSD not be good enough to sit in the PSD category, but equally be good enough to be pulled apart & coded into a fully functional website?
Surely if the design is deemed acceptable for full on coding, it’s a good enough design for being used just as a PSD ?
I also think that maybe a little bit more explanation could be used in the rejection emails… just my opinion
What would you change in my design?
@Mike343 – duly noted, will look at improving the readability of the dates, I will also look at improving the aesthetic quality of “Some of our Recent Work” so that it’s not seen as a possible mistake.
@gabshot – the initial reviewer first rejected the PSD on the basis of ‘Aesthetic Quality’ he said it wasn’t of high enough quality, fair point taken onboard and the screenshot above shows the 2nd round after improvements, which was still rejected, but for a lot less reasoning, and when I asked for further clarification I was given the same line with no explanation.
He did however, state that it might be deemed acceptable for the Site templates category but this was not a guarantee, to which I do understand that he was not offering any guarantee’s that it would be accepted but he would recommend coding this up & submitting it.
I mean, what do people think? Is it really that bad?
If it is deemed that bad, then i’ll leave it in my archives and put it down to experience and move on.
Thanks for the comments so far
Hey guys…. after a few attempts now at trying to get a template accepted in both the PSD and Site Templates catergories, i’m now at a point where I would like others to try tell me where I’m going wrong as the standard rejection emails are not very fruitfull in their information.
I have asked for pointers in the right direction, which I was duly given for the PSD catergory, and after the second rejection for that catergory, it was recommended by the reviewer that I code this up for submission to the Site Templates catergory.
Well, my attempt was unsuccessful last night and the overall jist of rejection stated “design” as the culprit.
I have attached a link to my screenshot.. any help would be VERY much appreciated. I put a lot of time and hard work into this template and I would very much like to see it on the marketplace
I respect the views and opinions of the reviewers on here and I understand that they can’t and most likely, simply don’t have the time, to critique each and every rejection, hence my post on here.
