Previously here we were just demonstrating our own idea about a possible badge design with no offense in mind. We value all the great efforts made by Kate and her design team at Envato. We surely understand that they have spent some good time to create these badges with such level of details (yeah, it is SVG too). But the design style should have been changed from the cartoon-like illustration to something minimal and clean, matching to the overall experience of marketplace websites. Also the badges should not distract viewers nor they grab whole un-necessary attention.
But we are sure that Envato Designers can create it better than this (also better than what we demonstrated here). If Envato takes this badge debate and suggestions as serious, it will make the marketplace websites look clean and non-cluttered by reworking current badges. Everything else on marketplace websites are Okay, so please do not let these badges distract it.
Expecting the best from Envato Design Team – you guys can do great things as ever
All the best if you are planning to change the current badges (decision is yours, we will surely follow whatever it is).
It is exactly as per your current commission rate. We got it like that, it was in 2012 – our early days here. We got 52% then. Don’t know if it changed these days.
Sold 2 in our lifetime till now. Let’s check the history, please hold on.
^ Something like this would have been better (Our humble opinion – we are not masters of illustration). Also with colors differentiating the status (keeping the badges clean) along with tool tip info description.
Or else, simply the older one should be back. In all cases, the new badges are not professional
Ooooops…The new badges does not look like professional – sorry to say this. We value the efforts of the designer behind it, but the new icons are not at all matching with overall site design & color schemes. It is looking childish
‘100% rate.’ - Envato did a good thing on this beautiful birth-day.
‘Self Item Purchase’ - Some authors did very bad thing on this same day.
So, what’s the outcome? We will see no such birthday gifts to come on future.
Bad authors ruined this day. Good authors sucks. Sad, but true
Happy birthday Envato We thank you so much.
And it’s gone.
The tiny, handy, cute (sometimes naughty) progress bar. Ohh dear, this is a great miss.
Once we submit an item we obviously know that it is ‘under review’. So who cares about the ‘status information’. Let the email come from reviewers, that’s all.
Nothing much exciting about the ‘progress bar’ here, just leave this topic and go to work Peace of Mind!
PS. If you anyone like to keep a photo of this ‘Endangered species’ kinda stuff, here is it (LOL)
