Your design is to simple. Your fonts doesn’t work very well. You limit the space for info with that black boxes. If the client wants to replace with a longer name then John Doe he will have a problem.

I like your logos. There is no problem with your work. The main reason for low sales is the market overcrowd and lack of exposure. Simply we are to many here.

  • 1. Composition is outdated.
  • 2. To many effects on text boxes and fonts.
  • 3. The black shadow on the title is to hard.
  • 4. Overall all your effects are too hard.
  • 5. Use 2 pairing fonts
  • 6. Do not use that blink effect looks cheap.
  • 7. Do not place your elements to close to margins.
  • 8. Try to understand what clients needs and organize your flyer more strait forward.
  • 9. You have a big lack in your information hierarchy.
  • 10. Flat colors does’t work well with all text and text boxes effects.

Hope this helps you. Bafta

One little advice. Forget about signatures. You will learn nothing doing signatures.

I decided to stop uploading here because of that exclusivity rule. Without exclusivity 33% is way to low comparing with my amount of work. The real money ($5000+ in 3 weeks) can be made by participating in deals. There are many sites offering me opportunity to participate in deals. But here nobody can do this with this exclusivity on. Envato can implement a possibility here that allows authors to team up in deals. Clients love deals!

1. Too many fonts and sizes 2. Do not include in your design social icons. 3. Bad colors choices. 4. I’m not a big fan of photos on BC and you use all the team. Keep it simple. 5. Not sure about bleed with these lines. 6. Do not use script fonts in small sizes.

I think I’m officially done uploading my work to GraphicRiver. I just can’t do it. I’m getting good results from another marketplace where I set my own price and get 70% of each sale without having to be exclusive there. So what’s the incentive when my work gets priced too low here (often half of what it sells for elsewhere) and I get just 33%?

Let’s go, Envato. The competition is putting you guys to shame. At the very least you need to get the prices up so that we’re getting better royalties on sales. Right now we get hit hard twice with low prices AND low royalty percentages.

I’m done uploading here until I see some changes.

+1 same here

Congrats! 3 years for a front page promotion. Definitely we are far to many for this website and Envato do nothing about that. Same old promotion system like 5 years ago can’t serve so many authors now in 2014.
