I am just guessing but perhaps when Eden was renamed to Envato they thought they bring in the leaf to represent eden
Let’s ask the staff.
The new font is great! The leaf image I have always been indifferent about…not sure what sort of motif/metaphor the image is supposed to represent, but I am most likely missing some crucial piece of information.
That’s what I’m saying too, if that is not accidentally there then I would be very interested behind the reasoning of that cut.
like the font, but I agree with previous comments:
If you dont know that this once was a leaf, you would think of the logo as just a green blob without meaning. On top of that the logo looks somewhat imperfect with the sharp bend at the top…
But is it important for the emblem to be recognized as a leaf? Does it matter? I think not.
just very quick my key points:
2009 (without a job, was freelancing at that time)
- 1, Hearing about the Site
- 2, Realizing it’s potential for web designers/developers
- 3, Signing up
- 4, Realizing that own skills are nowhere as good to submit own item
2010 (get a full time job and tried to save some money)
- 5, Observing the marketplace while trying to improve skills
2011 september (quit my job and start to create the first design for themeforest)
2012 (only source of income is ThemeForest which isn’t enough, still support living from the savings)
- 6, Submit first item into PSD category
- 7, Get partnership offers which all turn out to be bad choices
- 8, Submit more items into PSD category
- 9, Getting some freelance work
- 10, Find some very good partners, releasing some items together
2013 (Savings are gone, but enough income is coming in from ThemeForest to be able to start saving again)
- 11, Thinking about learning HTML
- 12, double my monthly income compared to 2013
I like it but, what’s the idea behind having the top of the leaf on the left side cut off?
I think the quality of the typography and overal aesthetics is very low.
Need to work on the design. I don’t know much about the back side of the work but this is easily hard rejected just for the design alone.
The Gypsy goes to a job interview to get a job as a lumberjack.
- Well Gypsy, do you have any work experience as a lumberjack? What reference work can you show us to get the job?
- The Kalahari forest!
- Gypsy, the Kalahari is not a forest, it’s a Desert!
- It is Desert now!
That’s bad, very bad practice, it shows only that there is no respect for the work and the author.
Else this would never happen without notice. This should be so self evident, there is just no reason acceptable for this.
Would worth million times more then updating the rating system, or any other change on the site that Envato is planning to roll out in the future.
Basic respect is missing here.
I wonder what would happen to envato if the top 200 authors would delete their items without notice and start selling it elsewhere.
btw. it seems that your item is back in the popular list, so envato just made you age 5 years in 24 hours. they were quick at least.
Messing up with coding for too long can kill your design abilities. If you want to bring it back just forget about coding limitations and play in Photoshop. So my answer is yes, design can be learned to some degree if you have enough time for that. On the other hand it’s not easy doing designing and programming all by yourself and achieve TF standards for both.
+ seven lightyears for this
keep in mind Ben if you want to excel in design then you have to put coding aside.
You can’t beat a designer who’s focus is 100% on design when you spend 50% of your time coding and the rest designing.
This is goes for coding as well.
