If you buy a logo template today, you will see a small link off to a service called Graphiclancer to get your logo template customised.
Graphiclancer is actually a test project from us here at Envato. We are testing out some product ideas through a lo-fi site to see what sort of buyer demand there is in small service jobs. This will be the first of a variety of small tests you may come across. It isn’t a fully formed product yet and so we’re not ready to share it with everyone.
We’ve kept the Graphiclancer service unconnected to Envato because we want as unbiased feedback as possible.
I’m going to be talking more about this project later this year, and the results, and what we have in store for authors.
I think it’s like taking the FreelanceSwitch to the next level.
Things are very clear this way.
Great thing! Btw, Who will customize it? Author or Graphiclancer staffs?
Sorry to be negative on this one, but…
I think you need to take a 1-2 year break Collis, go travel the world or something. That will give the rest of your company time to catch up with all your ‘projects’, so that things aren’t left severely lacking in features
Also, please keep this unconnected from the marketplaces. Double-sided business cards for $35 and app icons for $100 (all with a money back guarantee) is the kind of pricing that promotes bottom of the barrel design that will, in my opinion, tar the whole company.
...having said all that. I thought that adding logos to GR was a massive mistake, and it seems that I was wrong on that one. So who knows…!
Really nice step ahead. Are authors going to be involved in these services?
Glad to see you ‘Sir Collis’ once in a while in the forum.
