I believe that just as have a ‘Top New Authors’ link we need a ‘Top New Items’ link. A page that shows the best selling items only submitted in the last or week or month.
From what I’ve seen, most of the files in ‘Popular Files’ are the same from week-to-week. Now sure, they are popular for a reason, no doubt they are really good, but there’s probably an element of being ‘caught in a loop’, i.e they get more exposure, so they get more sales, so they end up on that page and get more exposure etc. etc.
And why wouldn’t buyers want to see popular, fresh new items?
I haven’t seen one, but I don’t see why anyone would need one?
A logo is a unique, one-time, specialized object. Not something you would need to have in multiples.
Such a unique item to be selling and it looks like it is doing quite well. Congrats! and I wish you all the luck for the future!
I agree that logos, due to their price and function, are not much of an impulse buy and therefore they do not benefit from front page exposure as much as other items.
Unfortunately though, I think a logo marketplace on its own would be too diluted and wouldn’t be sustainable.
Perhaps now that the logo category has been adequately popularised it is time to raise the quality requirements of those items. Some logos are very well done and catch my eye, but there are also some that are pretty average.
People are accountable for who they invite to Dribbble so most people will want to see some of your work before they invite you.
Search around on here, Dribbble and Twitter, people will usually say when they have some invites available.
it is the Envato staff members that select the weekly featured files. All you can do is produce quality work and hope for the best.
If you ask me, its the stereotypical club flyers there are pretty boring. They all generally seem to contain the same elements and just assembled in various ways. Not that I’m a buyer, just my personal opinion.
I’ve noticed some very creative and unique designs lately. The likes of SeraphimChris, Ioswl and Minkki stand out for me.
Congratulations! Some great items you have there.
I don’t believe the file was rejected because it is too similar to your previous file, it’s just that it’s similar to other files on the marketplace as a whole. Obviously if it is similar to other files on the marketplace then it is not unique and therefore you need some way to differentiate your file either through exceptional quality or other methods.
Your previous item is irrelevant in this situation.
