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…
All this before the end of September
We’re on a bit of a roll at the moment, what with the birthday celebrations, the launch of the new Envato.com website, lots and lots of recent upgrades to our server infrastructure and the launch of Phototuts+ … but it doesn’t stop there. Nope, in the next 6 weeks we have a rather huge amount of stuff planned which in turn means we’re all going to be working some serious overtime! Here’s what’s coming before the end of September:
