In the last three years our Envato Marketplaces (FlashDen, ThemeForest, GraphicRiver, AudioJungle and VideoHive) have grown like gangbusters, with big communities, huge libraries of files and lots of activity. So when we set out to redesign them earlier this year everyone on the team knew it was going to be big. What we didn’t realise was HOW big it would eventually get! Today it gives me great pleasure to show you …
The best way to make work feel like not work is to do something you enjoy, and do it damn well. That’s why I’m happy to announce the newest Envato blog: WorkAwesome! As you might guess from the name, it’s a site for people who want to be awesome at work. After all, if you’re going to spend eight hours a day doing something, you may as well put some heart into it!
Since we launched Mac.AppStorm early this year it’s been growing really rapidly and rapidly getting a reputation as the leading blog on Mac Apps. This is in no small part due to our very talented editor David Appleyard who has steered this blog from strength to strength. With Mac.AppStorm doing so well, we’ve decided it’s time to branch out into another great area of apps – the Web! Meet Web.AppStorm. (more…)
It’s been a hectic 3 days for us here at Envato. We’ve had a massively successful Birthday Bundle (over 5,000 sales in 3 days), lots of giveaways, a fantastic Tuts+ tutorial set up for free download and our first video interview. Here in the office we’ve also been celebrating today with a big lunch and lots of network gaming! With the birthday all wrapped up now though I thought I’d give you a very quick preview of what’s coming up in September…
One of the best things about working here at Envato is that we have an awesome team of people building, managing, writing, reviewing and working on our sites. Yep, things have come a long way since the early days when there was just a few of us trying to do everything!
Recently our awesome Tuts+ interviewer Emil asked if I minded being video interviewed with some questions put forward by the Psdtuts+ readers. Since no-one really wants to see my enormous head on screen for too long a period of time, I asked my lovely wife and partner in crime Cyan if she’d be in on the interview and we thought we’d put up the video to help celebrate 3 years of Envato.
It was back in 2006 that Envato first launched with our very first site FlashDen. That means next week we’ll be turning 3 years old! Since web years are much like dog years, by my count that makes us pretty darn old. Given how we’ve grown, we’ve decided that this year it’s time we really kicked our celebrations up a notch. Next week for 3 days we’re going to have a massive sequence of birthday events, read on to find out what’s happening …
One week on from the launch of the AppStorm blog and the site is flying along.
Close to 2,000 2,149 RSS subscribers and a little over 60,000 pageviews served already! With so much traffic coming through, we’ve decided to open up the sidebar for advertising at a cheap early ad rate of $160 p/month.
We’ve got big plans for this site both in content and features. So hopefully a few of these spots will go and help pay towards getting the ball really rolling!
