We’ve made some awesome strides in 2018, like selling our 50 millionth item on Envato Market, having one of our ThemeForest authors hit the $25 million mark in sales, and reaching 100 thousand subscribers on Envato Elements.
Our year-end number-crunching has also revealed some interesting trends about what people are searching for or buying — data that could help inform your own work. Read on to discover the trends and surprises that have unfolded this year in Graphics, 3D, Photos, Video, Audio, Themes and Code.
Whether it’s fonts, business cards, or resume templates,
our graphics have proven they have the Midas touch this year.
We know our fonts are gorgeous, and it seems you do too. That’s why fonts are among the most popular items licensed on Envato Elements, with sans-Serifs, Script and Handwritten type all getting use in a wide variety of creative projects. If you haven’t gotten a taste of our font magic yet, head on over to Envato Elements and see what the fuss is all about.
Fonts and graphics are, of course, as they were among the most popular items used by our Envato Elements subscribers. But by the end of 2018, an Envato Elements subscription provided more content types than any other equivalent subscription service, from video and audio content to PixelSquid 3D art, WordPress themes and more. If you haven’t yet checked out our incredible range of graphic items, here’s your chance.
This year, we’ve seen a lot of colour—sometimes eye-burning amounts of it, like pure 100% brightness magenta and cyan! If you’re the colour addict we think you might be, pick up any of our gorgeous colourful graphics and bring alive your websites, applications, or desktop wallpaper.
Gradient style business and lifestyle vectors have certainly picked up near the end of this year and are set to become a thing in 2019. We’ve got a great selection at Envato Elements that you can use for your projects.
Both permutations (CV, curriculum vitae, resume, etc) are regular top 10 search trends on GraphicRiver. But, language wise, “resume” and related keywords get more searches than CV. Unsurprisingly perhaps, December and January are when these searches peak… #newyearnewme!
