What is beta tester?

When Envato Studio aka Microlencer starts they invite designers to test the new platform.

I have a saying in my language. If I translate it sound like this. The life is like a coffee without sugar (black and bitter)

Don’t ask me if your avatar it’s ok or not. You decide that. But keep in mind a business here or elsewhere as a freelance designer its different then a clan in a game.

1. You talk to much without any goal. 2. You are not a good designer until you prove that.

I don’t care about your avatar but the clients love to see a friendly personal brand. If you don’t realize how to do business here just watch and learn.

I can’t wait to see your logos. But my advice is still the same. Change your approach and your avatar. Remember you are here to sell your items not to be an exhibitionist.

My friend do you realize what you promised here? You bet on us you upload 150 logos without rejection in very short time. What I think about that? Based on your approach and your rejected logos until now you are just a Jolly Joker here. My advice is to change your avatar first and start learning what real design means.

Signatures are useless. We are in 2014 forums are history. Why don’t you create an action for Facebook covers.

Building your own shop is the best long term solution.

I seriously doubt that… We have been down that road and believe me, it’s not easy! Being developers at heart, we found that a lot of our time ended up being spend on marketing, taking away from building and developing our actual products.

Now that we have once again aimed our attention and focus on CC, we’re finding that our sales increase with each new release and since we can only focus on building our products :) Happy coding!

Agreed. Being a core developer, marketing comes hard to us. And it isn’t fun either. With CC you can get really good sales with near-zero marketing efforts.

That said, it makes sense to set up your own shop if you are looking for scale and flexibility, and don’t mind getting out of your comfort zone.

For you as developers yes you are right CC and TF could be the answer. But keep in mind CC is not overcrowded yet. But for me as a designer in GR sales are lower and lower. I start my shop 8 months ago and and sales are decent right now and site is growing every month. An the other hand my time spent on marketing is the same time you spend on support and updates. And the day when I will hire someone specialized in marketing is not so far.

First of all how can I PM you if you have no option for this. Second: from what I understand you need a clever logo. If you want a clever logo my advice is to be open minded. Do not seize any ideas based on “I know what I want”. Remember we (as designers) mix ideas on daily basis. Wish you the best logo in the world.
