hi,

This is a start, but it needs more.

Look at hierachy, everything seems to be the same size. Look at space: everything seems to be very squashed and squeezed in. There is no room to breathe. Look at detail: the background is very bland look at font sizes, this goes with hierachy, you need to differentiate between the main message and additional information et cetera

You can do something with this, but it needs work

Cheers

Chris

Could you send some examples of logos that were rejected? That could give us a better idea.

And yes: in the logo category anything goes, from rejection of great items to acceptance of rubbish.

And no: at Envato you won’t be helped with a hard rejection. Only soft rejections may get you some feedback.

Cheers

hi all,

My apologies I must have misinterpreted the original post.

I thought he wanted to purchase a vector here, and then use that vector to create a logo to sell here.

So basically I thought he wanted to resell another authors item by just making a few changes.

My apologies for the misunderstanding.

I agree, logo licence issues aare a pain in the neck.

In fact the entire logo market is a pain in the neck (no offence to logo authors, I am following a number of great logo authors here ) – I just think it’s a different market.

Cheers

Chris

Frankly, I would find it incredibly stupid to create a logo with someone else’s clipart … or am I missing something here? :)

Certainly not a bad idea. I would imagine they will simply refer to a guide as to what is “good design” :) And if your item gets hard rejected it’s “bad design”, or simply not needed. If it gets soft rejected you will often find tips from the reviewer on how to improve your item.

The “Needed and un-needed items” list is also ancient. I wonder if it’s still relevant

What I would personally like to see even more is consistent guidelines I know both I and the reviewers will follow.

As per my thread here a few days ago: I still do not know whether I can include a vector logo in my stationery items. I’ve been told that I must rasterise it, yet every week I see items in thiscategory with vector logos included. So what’s the deal, can I can I or not?

Surely there must be other similar questions from other authors which are pretty easy to answer, and which are also pretty easy to convey to all reviewers. It would be good to have the same baseline for everyone.

I’m sure more authors will add to this thread with my suggestions.

Cheers

Chris

Hi all,

For a few days now for some of my items when I click on the analytics I only get the page views/referrals for the last day. Anything before that is simply at zero for the current month, and nothing at all for any previous months.

I do know there have been visits, because I’ve made sales.

Has any of you experienced something like that? It happens on some of my items, on others it doesn’t.

Cheers

Chris

hi,

Yes, I took a look at your portfolio. There are some nice work there.

I think it’s basically because many of your flyers have the same sort of layout: big badge as central piece, photo behind it, text below.

I do realise that you are not the only one who’s doing this. I’ve seen this in other portfolios too, and I always wondered why they keep admitting the same Style over and over from the same authors.

I assume this is why it got rejected with that message. But I do agree that this is lacking consistency because other authors do the same thing.

Cheers

Chris

Maybe you could send a screenshot of your rejected item? That would help us see exactly what was meant.

If the badge you use over again is the main centrepiece of the flyer, then maybe using a different one would be a good idea.

Cheers

Chris
