From geometric patterns and hand-drawn illustrations to 3D renders and Photoshop actions, our community has created some incredible things this year.
Envato’s community has been around for over a decade. This August, we’re celebrating our 11-year birthday; in the past 11 years, creatives around the world – including designers, web developers, videographers, and photographers – have earned a living doing what they love through Envato’s marketplaces.
Last year, we launched Envato Elements, a subscription-based service for design and creative assets. With the unique subscriber share model, we’ve built a platform for unlimited access to design assets that are modern, forward-thinking, and on-trend.
Hundreds of thousands of creative items have been added to the Elements library, from more than 1,000 independent designers around the world.
This library of creative assets – from graphics, fonts and photos to web templates, 3D files, and more – have inspired our community of Elements users to create over 1 million (!) projects using Elements items.
To celebrate our 1-year anniversary of Elements, here’s a look at a few of the portfolios of our top authors & designers right now:
Designs and Graphics
With nearly 500 digital assets in their portfolio, Wutip is a designer of many talents. From mockups and backgrounds to website graphics and print templates, Wutip’s work stands out for being consistently on-trend.
Item spotlight: Shapeforms pattern
Playing on the geometric, Memphis design-inspired trends of the year, this design pack features 10 different shape designs. We love the way the patterns are showcased – as wallpaper (pictured above), t-shirt patterns, and more.
PixelSquid makes 3D objects that you can spin around at any angle, then download that perspective.
Item spotlight: Low Poly Avocado Halved
Avocados, polygon designs, and 3D – this might be the most 2017 design on Envato Elements.
For Photoshop actions
Brad Goble, aka SevenStyles, was the first Australian author on Envato’s marketplaces to earn $1 million in sales. He got his start with flyer templates, but he’s best known for his suite of expertly designed Photoshop actions.
Item spotlight: Palette Knife Photoshop Action
Want to turn your photo into a work of art? “This effect is so realistic, it appears as though the resulting ‘texture’ is tangible,” says one of our content specialists.
An icon for everything
Vehicles, business, e-learning, firefighting, chemistry, birthday, autumn, hipster, casino, kids, dentist, wild west, coffee shop, Thanksgiving, travel, museums, currency, circus, yoga poses… we challenge you to find a topic that doesn’t have a matching icon set in IconBunny’s portfolio.
Item spotlight: 50 Birthday Flat Multicolor Icons
Because no matter what industry you’re in, you’re bound to have some sort of birthday celebration to highlight.
High-tech meets artwork
Much of themefire’s work is generative art – a style of artwork that’s created using algorithms and programs like Cinema 4D, rather than being created the ‘old-fashioned way’.
Item spotlight: Marmoreal Painted Canvas Backgrounds
Bright, splashy, and colorful – check out this article for a few more before-and-after shots behind the creation of this work.
Doodles and illustrations
With illustrations and doodles range from trendy (tropical patterns, florals) to the mouth-watering (donuts and pizza), Jumsoft’s work is a top seller in our illustrations category.
Item spotlight: Skulls clipart
Because it’s never too early to start planning for Halloween. ?
A presentation with polish
With over 100 presentation templates in their portfolio, inspirasign’s clean, eye-catching work is a top-seller.
Item Spotlight: Metro Keynote
Bright, rainbow-inspired designs that aren’t over-the-top.
