What did they say when it was rejected? The thing that stands out to me is the “Club Party” type could use some work. The “yoursite” is also very close to the bottom, might want to bump that up a bit.
Additionally to the simplified center, I would give the type a more meaningful name. “Custom Project” makes the whole thing look bad, it would look better with a proper name. You might also want to play with the type, just test something rounded and see how it looks, to match the logo.
The typography needs some work, and the whole thing needs to be refined, clean up the little things. Fix the backwards quotation mark in the pull quote slide, and fix the large type in the 28% slide.
From a quick glance I noticed several of them looked very cheesy. The second one (the grass one) especially. They look like they were made from default photoshop textures, so maybe start by reworking the textures. Quality beats quantity here at GR so maybe invest some more time in the best 3? ... just my 2 cents.
updates: heres a black and a white… let me know what you think
So I looked and saw there weren’t many 404 page templates. I decided to make one and it got the “This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria” generic email. So let me know what you think!
Me either :/ i couldn’t find anything that looked right.. do you think i should try to take off a tooth from the gear to get the “X” to divide in-between teeth?
So I came up with this concept.. still a draft.. but let me know what you think!
