The Story of Envato https://envato.com/blog/the-story-of-envato/ Tue, 28 Aug 2018 07:02:24 +0000 https://envato.com/?p=72898 From a small idea in a garage to one of the creative world’s most quietly influential companies, this is the story of Envato.

The post The Story of Envato appeared first on Envato.

]]>

It was 2006 and in a garage somewhere in Sydney, three young entrepreneurs, Collis and Cyan Ta’eed, and Jun Rung created something.

It was a marketplace called FlashDen. And it would sell items compatible with Adobe Flash player, a plugin used by almost every website on the internet at the time.

The first buyer on that market was Collis, who would become CEO.

Not long after that the newly formed company launched two more products: PSD Tuts, which offered tutorials for Photoshop, and Freelance Switch.

But then Collis and Cyan took a much needed a break. Travelling the world for what ended up being 19 months, and left the company in the hands of Collis’ brother, Vahid.

In 2008 two more marketplaces went live. ThemeForest, which sold themes for WordPress and other platforms, and AudioJungle which sold royalty-free stock music tracks and sound effects.

That same year the company housing all these marketplaces was finally given a name. Having previously worked under the name, Eden – which was difficult to win a trademark for – the company settled on Envato, a name suggested by Brand Bucket.

In 2009 GraphicRiver, which sold graphic design templates, and VideoHive, which sold stock footage and motion graphics templates, launched.

Then in July of that year, Collis and Cyan returned to Australia, and decided to move the company to Melbourne.

That year the company moved into its first of many headquarters, an office 330 square meters large, with room for about thirty. Over the next two years they’d outgrow it.

In 2010 Envato launched another marketplace, CodeCanyon, selling plugins and scripts.

In 2011, it launched PhotoDune, selling stock photography, and 3DOcean selling 3D items.

That same year it moved to its second office with room for fifty. It would soon outgrow that, too.

In 2011, Envato Creator, Kriesi, became the first of our community of creators to reach $1 million in earnings on the Envato marketplace.

In 2013, Microlancer, a marketplace for freelancers, which would go on to become Envato Studio, was launched.

That same year the company moved into new headquarters at 121 King Street, Melbourne with room for 200.

In 2014, Envato was named “Australia’s Coolest Tech Company” by JobAdviser.

In 2014, Envato Videographer, Josh Janssen travelled the world to capture the stories of our creative community.

In September 2014, the Envato Community hit $200 million in earnings.

In 2015, ActiveDen, previously FlashDen, the marketplace that started it all, was closed.

That same year Envato was named one of the best places to work in Australia, and Coolest Company for Women.

In August 2015, the Envato Community hit $300 million in earnings, and ThemeForest Creator, ThemeFusion became the first Envato author to reach $10 million in sales.

In May 2016, the Envato Community hit $400 million in earnings.

In August of that year Envato’s marketplace reached 2 million active buyers.

That same month, Envato’s subscription service, Envato Elements launched.

And in July 2018, Envato acquired Placeit, a DIY tool that allows anyone to make something creative.

Since 2006, Envato has made good on its mission to help creatives earn a living from selling on our marketplace with our community having earned over $600 million dollars since the company’s inception.

We’re one of the most highly trafficked web destinations in the world, with Themeforest topping Netflix in 2015. And we’ve also surpassed 10 million registered users.

Our products have appeared everywhere from small business websites Kanye West music videos. And between the templates you can buy on Envato Elements, and the courses you can take on Envato Tuts+, we’ve helped millions of people get creative projects done.

Community is at the heart of everything we do. Not just in the way we help our marketplace creators and customers, but in the way we contribute to our wider community, too. Each year we donate a portion of our profits to charity. Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to support causes as diverse as mental health, environmental protection, education, literacy and family violence.

From a small idea in a garage to one of the creative world’s most quietly influential companies, Envato has come a long way since 2006, and the story is not over yet.

Our mission is to bring ideas to life and help creators earn a living doing what they love.

What is Millennial Pink? https://envato.com/blog/what-is-millennial-pink/ Mon, 20 Aug 2018 21:17:51 +0000 https://envato.com/?p=71966 Millennial Pink has seaped into the worlds of fashion, digital design, even kitchen appliances. So, what's the story behind this color?

The post What is Millennial Pink? appeared first on Envato.

]]>

This might look like an ordinary color. But it’s not.

No, there’s something very special about it. And it’s not identifiable just looking at it.

No. This color is very popular with a whole generation of people called millennials.

Millennials are generally identified as people born from around 1980 to the mid to late 1990s who grew up in the 2000s.

They’re the people who eat avocados, use Snapchat and will probably never be able to afford a house.

And they love this pink.

So much so that this pink is named after them.

Millennial Pink – as it was labeled in mid-2016 – has made appearances in Instagram posts, on Tumblr pages, on catwalks and on Drake.

But its reach hasn’t been contained to celebrities, models and the internet.

It’s also been seen on sofas, saucepans and dustbins.

So what is the deal with this color? Why did millennial pink take over the world? And is it nearing the end of its reign?

What is Millennial Pink?

Every year, Pantone picks a color and labels it the color of the year. But most years not a lot really comes from it.

In September 2016, they named Pale Dogwood in its 2017 Fashion Color Report.

And it couldn’t have been more in sync with the public mood.

In the decades previous slightly different shades of pink had made appearances.

There was barbie pink which feels like a sugar rush to the eyes.

Salmon pink which you can still spot on the occasional preppy boy.

Peach pink, blush and delicate pink.

Millennial pink, however, was a slight bit more neutral. Almost like beige with a light addition of pink.

It entered the public consciousness quietly.

But then all of the sudden, it was everywhere.

Here are some speculative reasons as to why it took off.

It’s calming (although science does not back this up)

Look, the jury was out, came back, and decided that there’s no scientific proof for what I’m about to say. But there is an argument to be made that the color is – or seems – calming.

Baker-Miller Pink is a color created by biosocial researcher Alexander Schauss. It’s the result of mixing red and white paint together and it’s a little brighter than millennial pink.

Schauss was so confident in its ability to calm people down that he performed an experiment testing the color at naval facilities where prisoners were monitored.

He claimed the evidence showed the color lowered blood pressure and aggressive behaviour.

Science, however, did not back this up. And in 1988 a study published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine determined the color had no real effect on human behaviour at all.

But that didn’t stop Kendall Jenner from reviving the debate after painting one of her rooms Baker Miller-Pink to “calm” her.

Contemporary scientists claimed she was wrong. But her Instagram following probably disagrees.

Its Androgynous

According to a 1918 edition of Ladies Home Journal, “the generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl”.

Ignoring the inherent problems with using that publication as a guide to very much at all, it is a fascinating quote to pull out considering the color pink’s association with women seeming like a rule handed down on a stone tablet.

But it actually wasn’t. Instead, according to Vox, it was influenced by what First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower – who thought the color matched well with her skin tone and eyes –  wore during her husband’s reign in the 1950s and 60s.

Nonetheless the color’s association with femininity has endured.

However, for millennials the whole idea of gender is becoming fluid.

Men wearing pink has helped blur the boundaries between the sexes in a small way, and has helped the color develop a ubiquity similar to what beige experienced to some degree in the 90s.

But it’s extended far beyond the occasional shirt or pair of pants into full sweats and suits bathed in the color.

It Goes Viral And Moves Product

The color really stands out on social media.

And people are aware.

Dimes – a restaurant in New York – once had a table that was pink. By September 2016 customers of the millennial demographic kept requesting to sit at it. Why? To Instagram their food on it. The owners decided to remove it.

The Gallery at Sketch London – a restaurant – has pink walls and pink velvet chairs.

Common Projects released its main model of shoe in a blush pink.

Poke bowls with salmon became popular.

Le Creuset made a saucepan collection in “hibiscus.”

Other brands made other things in pink. (dustbin, side table, mixer, toaster)

Gucci presented a whole resort collection in pink.

Glossier made pink its main brand color.

Rose quartz crystals started to sell out.

Furniture started selling in pink.

The iPhone was released in rose gold – aka pink.

And Drake and Rihanna wore pink things that almost instantly sold out.

“Posts with a pink thing in them perform better,” Monica Khemsurov from design blog, Sight Unseen told The Cut.

“A normal post might get 1,500 likes, and the pink ones get 4,000.”

Is It Over?

Apparently we hit peak pink about a year ago and it’s time for a new color.

But what?

Vogue thinks it’s these.

  • Gen Z yellow
  • Safety orange
  • Melodramatic purple
  • Neo mint

But I’m less convinced.

I don’t know that anything could truly replace it.

I mean, how often do generation defining colors come about?

It’ll be a long time before we have that much affection for a color again.

But who knows. Kendell Jenner’s wall or Drake’s next album cover could change all that tomorrow.

Until then, I’ll keep using my pink trash can.
