Designers earn $1M on new Envato platform in first six months. Set to exceed $3M in first year.

San Francisco and Melbourne, Australia - March 21, 2017 - Six months after launching, Envato Elements designers have earned over USD$1M, with current growth rates indicating it will continue to be an attractive proposition for independent designers.

Envato Elements launched in August 2016, with almost 5,000 design assets provided by hand-picked contributors from around the globe. It has quickly grown to include over 20,000 assets including Fonts, Graphics, Add-Ons, Presentation and Website Templates and 3D renders. Envato Elements has also fast become a must-have for agencies, freelancers, marketers and digital creatives - with over 20,000 subscribers paying a fixed monthly fee for unlimited access.

“We are very excited to reach this milestone and help our contributors earn a living doing what they love,” says Adrian Fittolani, General Manager of Content, at Envato. “As we continue to grow the content offering and attract new subscribers, the earning opportunities will continue to increase.”

Early results indicate Envato Elements is providing additional earning opportunities for the many contributors who also have items available for individual sale on Envato Market. Further, the progressive subscriber share model – whereby the revenue from each individual subscriber goes to the contributors they actually use – is ensuring that contributors are incentivised and rewarded for creating both popular and niche items.

Both contributors and subscribers have praised Envato Elements:

“It’s great that I can generate an income, and also know that my work is being appreciated and used in creative projects all over the world”
