It’s our seventh birthday, and we’re reminiscing. I’ve asked seven people from the Marketplace team about the most inspiring moments in the Marketplaces from the last seven years.
You can find their thoughts here: What Are the Most Inspiring Envato Marketplace Moments of All Time?
What about you? How did you discover Envato? Which events and milestones have inspired you most over the years? Let us know here, or in the comments on the post.
If you’re interested I’d be happy to let you know our progress and how we are doing
Hi Sliilvia (that’s fun to type)
I don’t mind which side of the fence you’re on. You’re experience sounds exactly like what we’re looking for.
I’d love to hear more about how our Marketplaces and authors are making your life easy, and giving you a jump start.
Feel free to either respond here, or message me personally.
Photography seems to be a huge passion around here! Well, Monday’s a day to celebrate – it’s World Photography Day.
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the organiser of the event over email. Korske Ara is an Aussie photographer, and a great guy. It’s been fun working with him.
I just posted about the event on Notes, and have a few suggestions about how you can celebrate. I hope you’re keen.
Happy World Photography Day!
Hi guys and girls. We’re after some stories, and we need your help.
How have the Envato Marketplaces helped startups? Has one of your items been used by a startup?
We’d love some stories of how a startup has used a Marketplace item to get off the ground. Maybe they purchased an icon, artwork, web theme or e-commerce site. Anything!
It would be great if you could include as much detail as possible. We want real stories!
Besides encouraging everyone here on the forums, we’re planning to post some of the best stories over the coming months on Notes and the newsletter. It will be a great way to let people know how awesome our Marketplaces are, and educate them about how we can help.
“We’ve just added something new for authors to Envato Extras, the best place to find apps, tools and resources to help you get more out of Envato. SalesGenius is a web app that tracks the sales of each of your items and categories, and also offers useful projections and comparisons. Read on to learn how it can help you as an author, and hear the story about how it came to be developed.”
Today (30th July) is International Friendship Day – a day to think about our relationships with others around the world. How can you make the most of your friendships with other authors here on the Marketplaces?I put together a roundup of “collaboration posts” on Notes to help you think about that. The article includes:
- “How to” articles from other authors about how collaboration has worked for them
- Interviews from author teams about how they collaborate
- Tutorials from FreelanceSwitch and Tuts+ about collaborating effectively
- Lists of tools that help you collaborate
- And a list of 10 items created through collaboration
There’s a new article on Envato Notes by ThemeForest author Andy Wilkerson (Parallelus). It’s worth a read:
As design trends change, it’s important to adapt our products to the new styles. Right now it’s obvious we’ve officially landed in Flatland. Everywhere you look there is an explosion of flat design styles. With the release of iOS 7, we now have every major mobile operating system using a flat interface style. Apple was the last of the big three to make the shift, possibly hoping if they waited long enough the Microsoft-inspired “Metro” look wouldn’t catch on. It did.
What are your thoughts on flat design? I’d love to hear them.
