Thanks everyone! I’m really happy to hear that. Yup I might try another account for other genres of music, more general based. We’ll see!

I remember Omni1 but I never was convinced to get it.

Hmmm, but Omni 2 does automatically the stuff that I do manually in hours through editing… I might have to think about getting it as well! Thanks for sharing guys!

Wow thank you so much everyone for your input! Not only do I appreciate the help, but it also made me happy to know you like the name and the avatar, and it’s memorable (some people I meet have a trouble saying it). There was quite some work behind it, but I wasn’t sure it had any impact. For branding or SEO, I’ll just try to add some keywords maybe, or a custom domain.

Well… I think you’ve all convinced me…! No change! Thanks again for taking the time guys! :-)

I have to say it’s really mind blowing what a community this is indeed. I just got more than 20 author’s opinion, positive feedback, and motivation, in just a few hours. This helps in so many ways and goes to show what we’re a part of.

Take care everyone , have a great weekend.

May I just ask. Probably you have some reason to change it?
Yes I just felt it couldn’t get very official and SEO-friendly, but maybe I’m wrong. Also I didn’t want to use my real name for it, but that’s okay I guess.


Keep the name. Change somethin’ else. :)
You’re right. Maybe a haircut or a new T-shirt will help. Haha!


What can I say… In my speech ” alkis ” is hunger…. :-(
Lithuanian? Haha nice. Well, in Swedish (and German) it means alcoholic! Luckily in Greek it means strong and honest.

Hey everyone,

I’d love your opinion on this, as I’m seriously thinking of changing my name, and changing it to something more defining, more branding friendly, and more ‘unique’ as a google keyword.

Do you think this will affect sales a lot? I’m especially concerned for people that know my through music logos on videohive, or for buyers who come back for my portfolio.

Anyone who’s done it who can share their opinion?

Thanks. alkis

I don’t. Was thinking of training, but preferred to train in how I transcribe songs quickly or improvise on chords and scales. That comes in more handy I think.

I can think of D though after many years of starting many songs or ideas from D, but that’s not perfect pitch.

Impressive when you see a person knowing which note you play. I was testing a piano teacher of mine, she knew what note I was playing, EVERY SINGLE time!

Did all buyers just went off and died????

Am i the only one experiencing this?

I mean, 5 days and only 1 sale? this is ridiculous…

Most of them might want to spend some days with the family during easter holidays, even if they work on a video/web project in some company. Projects usually have a break these days, and they set deadlines before or much after Easter.

That’s why March has always higher sales, because people wanna get their projects done before Easter. Same goes for October-November I believe.

Apart from Wordpress stuff on themeforest, there is an HTML category, which of course contains the whole realm of HTML, CSS, Javascript – which is close to your ‘marketplace for Front End Devs’ request.

You can see what people make here:
http://themeforest.net/popular_item/by_category?category=site-templates
There’s landing front-end only webpages, admin dashboards, mobile web app templates, bootstrap and angular admin templates, etc. Lots of stuff that a front end developer might need at this point of their career.

Maybe coding a mobile-only web app is not the right idea, and it would be better to make a responsive template of a Single Page Application with both Desktop (responsive) and mobile versions (and coding it and branding it as a ‘mobile first’ mindset template).

If you’re only into Javascript-only stuff, then you could take a look at codecanyon, maybe make a few angular directives, js/jquery widgets, etc. http://codecanyon.net/popular_item/by_category?category=javascript

Hope I helped.

Cheers.

On a slightly different note, but still close to ‘geeky’ or tech culture, check out threadless.com.

As far as logos and simple designs goes, I agree with Bedros above, find a good local t-shirt store and one there with a vector (although it depends on the technique they use – sometimes they turn out awful).
