Congratulations!!! by the way when did you start ?
.It’s quite a long story, but I will try to keep it short…
I deign flyers since 2008, and I always wanted to increase the quality of it, so on, a class mate of mine told me about deviantart.com, a site where you can share your design or art and he told me I should post some works there because I he liked my designs.
So I started posting some design work at my http://grandelelo.deviantart.com/ (you can see there the first work posted and the date)… And then I discovered a group called by FlyerDesign in DA, and I was getting good comments and inspired by other designers work there, I so my work progressing to in terms of quality…
Then I started seeing the GRAPHICRIVER flyers on that group (Graphicriver Designer are all over Design Netwoks, lol ), So I follow the links, I saw Sevenstyles and PartyFlyer, they were the top sellers at that time, I saw how amazing their work was, I knew it would be difficult to me to get in that level of quality, and I don’t know if I’m going to get there soon , I spent mouths on that quiz because of my bad English, it was not easy to understand. After trying many times I got all the answers, then I was an Author, and I told myself this is very close.
I tried to upload my old designs but they all got rejected, I got rejected for at least 10+ times, mouths of trying…
Then I uploaded My Birthday After Party Flyer, but it got soft reject, I was closer and closer, Then I fixed what was wrong then, Booommm, “[GraphicRiver] Your Item was Approved for Sale” , This email title is always good to see…
I got like 13 sales in the same day, I couldn’t sleep that day.
From there here I am, and I don’t want to leave.
I started this because I’m looking for a way to make my life better, doing something I like. Living my dream, not no one else (Stive Jobs ;))
Thank you BlackMagics
A very warm TAHNK YOU for your motivational comments, that just get me supper happy…
You can’t beguine to imagine how I feel now, I’M SO HAPPY like Pharell William . This is such an amazing experience.
For those who don’t know I’m From Mozambique – Southern Africa, and I have to say I don’t know many people from my country doing the same.
I love to see my Item get approved (It’s not easy), but what is amazing to me is to see my Grandelelo thumbnail on the list of Top Sellers this late mouths, meaning I compete with top class designers around the World, that to me is just a great and special feeling, it just get my VIBE up…
I Have to say I bought and I’m buying many important things using my Envato Earnings
I’m not very good at talking or giving a speech, but let me thank some who made this possible:
God, ENVATO (grate and creative company), Buyers (there is no sale without you), Grate Market place friends specially, Marcus Vas AKA Easybrandz who I made grate exchange of experiences and he is the guy who designed my new logo, and all those who supported me.
I wish you all the success, Thank You!!!
