The GraphicRiver Logo Competition: We Have a Winner!

Posted: 13 Sep 2011 11:00 PM PDT

We decided to kick start GraphicRiver’s new Logo category with a competition, and it was huge! After receiving over 140 entries, we had a difficult time picking the winners. But we picked them anyway!

We whittled down the 140+ to the fifteen top logos. We were aiming for a Top 10, but that’s as close as we got – the entries were just too good. Then the Marketplace Growth Team consisting of Lance, Josh, Mark and Scott chose our top three choices. You can see the winning entry above – read on for all the details!

Marketplace manager Scott Wills recently announced the winners on the GraphicRiver forum. Here they are:

Unofficial Envato Marketplace Challenge

Posted: 13 Sep 2011 06:50 PM PDT

Keeping svelte whilst working at your desk is tricky. The motivation to pump iron as you wait for your design to upload, fades as the days fly by. Before you know it the furthest you’ve walked all week is to the bathroom and back.

For those of us who work in the industry it can be a struggle to balance work, play, work, exercise, work and keeping healthy. In the past few days the forums have been buzzing with threads such as;

How Do You Stay Fit and Healthy as a Web Designer/Developer?

Fortunately for us, our clever member RightHere has created the Unofficial Envato Marketplace Challenge. Thats right kids, get your game on!

The idea is, if you have the Nike+ app and a smart phone you can map your run and enter the kilometers as part of a marketplace team. The team with the most kilometers at the end of the challenge will triumph over all the other marketplaces. Sound fun?

Everyone who enters will have the added bonus of feeling fantastic. A bit of healthy competition can get you out of the chair and pounding the pavement in no time, and we all know how much better for our quality of life that will be. Less stress, more active, more confidence…its all positive.

The challenge starts on the 30th of September 2011 and runs for 3 Months (90 days).

Check out the thread for more details.
