I’ve been trying to start a design business with some people and long story short, we can’t think of a name.
Xiox is sort of my personal alias which I use for my stuff I do for fun, not really a professional business which is what we are trying to create. It’s been 3 days and we can’t think of a simple name haha.
We are looking for a name that doesn’t incorporate the word design as we want to have flexibility with it and be able to expand into game development and photography as well. The name should, however, give the idea of being strong, creative and professional (but not corporate or boring).
Every name that we come up with is already registered and we have even tried name generators, so we are really having a hard time with this. We have already discussed the other aspects of the business such as budget, pricing, etc.
We just need a name so we can start on the logo, website and overall look and feel of the business.
Our services include nearly everything you can think of that could be a design service, so we are pretty open to whatever name (it just has to feel right).
So any ideas that you guys may have or ways that we can easily come up with a name will be greatly appreciated .
For the record, I’ve been using my phone to reply and look through the thread and its not slow at all and the gif is running pretty smoothly for me haha.
Thanks for the help, guys.
So from what I understand now, I am only able to use gifs in the item description and forum posts, correct? Or are there other places on Envato that I can use them?
I’ve noticed that a few authors have used animated gifs in their item descriptions and “Homepage Image” on their profiles.
Is that still available for authors? Or is it only available for authors with higher seniority? I’ve tried putting animated gifs in these things and they just simply don’t work for me and I’m not sure if I’m just simply doing something wrong or if I’m not able to in general.
An example to give you better idea of what I might want to try is to make a sprite sheet for some kind of animation and then have an example of that animation in action in the item description, or would I be able to do that directly in the preview image?
Basically what I’m asking is if I can use animated gifs and what are all that different places I can use them?
Well that would be the exact opposite look that I was going for . So basically you guys think it was hard rejected because of the few little details? Wish they could have told me that.
I tested it, I brought it down to 80px and it still looks as it should.
The past 2 months have been my worst months sales wise since August 2012.
For some reason this item was hard rejected and I am not sure why. Maybe someone in the community can tell me what I did wrong?Link to see the image files that were a part of the item. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/txoqkfhfkecf5ub/Q3JFmrzKQ2
(The png labeled “Description” is an image that was going to be in the description of the item.)
Here is the rejection email:

I haven’t tried selling any of those, but from what I’ve seen it is hard to make a good profit on them. I find that with icons, the people who first posted a good pack of icons in each of the different styles are the ones who are selling the most.
As for logos I find that you have to make something that really stands out and works perfectly for multiple areas for it to sell well. You also have to think about the fact that people wont really want the same logo as someone else, so you may make only one sale on a logo.
While there are people who make good money on selling logos, icons and other things like that, it seems like most people buy things that they can use to help make their work better. Such as the Add-Ons category.
So apparently the problem was that the reviewer was reviewing them, however, I got all the emails late….. Now the review says that my preview image set is too big….
Is there a new rule? Because ALL of my previous items have images in the set that are larger than 900×900 and I see many other items that are the same. Now all of a sudden my items aren’t being accepted because they are slightly larger than that…. It says that they should typically be that size for better viewing, however all of my images in the past that are much bigger fit perfectly fine on my iPad screen, laptop and desktop.
