Create a grid, place each icon in its own cell and have each icon in its own group in the layers panel.

You always want to make it as easy as possible for your users to just Drag-and-drop these. Remember that icons will always be used in another context, never just on their own, so people will just want easy access.

Copying another GR author’s work is just pathetic – bad enough if you copy at all.

I think all profits from a proven copied file should go directly to the author of the original – if they’re still stored as market credits of course.

Worst of all: none of this is responsive. GR is a really simple grid layout, I can’t believe that in 2014 the thing is still fixed width for desktop monitors – when on TF every single template is fully respnsive, and has been for the last 3 years … quite poor!

This should be in the item discussion, not on the general board.

Don’t do italics, doesn’t fit here.

Maybe it’s a little overcomplicated. It’s cool, but it¡s also a lot of work to look at. All the shadows and different shapes laying on top of each other. I’d keep the shape but simplify it.

Cheers

You can just place a grey square with the word “your image here” written on it.

Alternatively you can use photos/images 100% created by you and 100% consent of any people in those images for you to use them.

Or you can get 100% royalty free and resale license images.

I would argue that 99% of all items on Graphic River will have image placeholders like my first suggestion.

Your best bet on a clear answer is always to get in touch with the reviewer and ask for feedback.

I could see those items needing some improvements, but on the other hand I also see a lot of rubbish accepted. So until you get actual feedback it’s kind of hard to tell these days.

That is the page we all know, I wonder if this is still the case though. I think this page hasn’t been updated in over three years – two people actually still do glossy navigations? :D

They thought it looks better if they give you less info so at first you think you get more than you really do.

I think it’s sad it when companies instead of being clear and upfront go all corporate on you and you think you’re talking to a bunch of lawyers. Disappointing to see Envato to take this turn…

Sizes are up to you – I always do AS4 and US Letter versions of all my documents.

Bleeds are as per commonly accepted by all printers: .25” bleeds on all print documents.

Set rulers and guides for bleeds and cropmarks.

The rest is up to you :)

If you’re new and you want to design logos just go wild and have fun. Knock out a few designs you enjoy doing – I don’t think there’s a logo category that sells more than others, but obviously corporate or creative fields have a bigger audience than niche markets
