Featured Desktop: ConstantinPotorac

This is the September 2011 Envato-themed desktop of GraphicRiver reviewer ConstantinPotorac. Click the image to explore it full sized on Flickr.

Constantin obviously loves the color purple, and prefers his favorite tools on a 2D dock on the left of his screen. He loves a clean desktop, with only two icons living there – one is a folder called “Desktop”.

He talks about his taste in desktops on Flickr:

I just love simple and clean desktops and that is why I keep mine as clean as possible. Your workspace reflects exactly how a person is in real life and I know I am organized as this desktop is. :)

So, what do you think of Constantin's desktop? Let us know in the comments.

Would you like your desktop featured on Envato Notes? Upload your screenshot somewhere on the Web and let us know about it on our Write a Post page. Or upload it to Flickr and tag it with #envatonotesdesktops. Either way, add an interesting description. Each week we'll choose and publish a new screenshot.


AudioJungle’s Musicant Featured on Wacom’s New Bamboo Add

Posted: 19 Oct 2011 11:55 PM PDT

Who’s a fan of Wacom tablets? I’d say a huge percentage of the Envato community. It’s only fitting that Wacom are a fan of Envato too.

When looking for royalty-free music for their new multi-touch tablets, they came to AudioJungle. They chose a track from one of our most popular authors – Musicant. The track is called Beautiful Worlds.

Here it is:

It’s great to see AudioJungle becoming more and more popular, and being used in high-profile projects. Well-known companies are starting to rely on the quality and affordability of tracks on AudioJungle.

Congratulations, Musicant!

This isn’t the first time we’ve posted about AudioJungle tracks being used in interesting ways. If you missed our previous posts, here they are:

If you’re aware of any marketplace items being used in interesting ways, please let us know. We’d love to spread the word!

Marketplaces Exceed 1,000,000 Members: Infographic!

Posted: 19 Oct 2011 09:19 PM PDT

The 12th of September was an exciting day for me as a member of our thriving Marketplace community. I along with everyone here at Envato HQ watched eagerly as the global Marketplace member count steadily grew higher and higher and higher… We were close, very close to the 1,000,000 member milestone. With every page refresh the count grew higher and I began to reflect on just how staggering having 1,000,000 members really is and on just what a fantastic community everyone has helped to build here.

I remember starting at Envato in 2009 and being blown away by the 250,000 or so accounts that were registered at the time. I bragged to all of my friends “Can you believe there’s a QUARTER OF A MILLION MEMBERS!?”. Little did I know in just under 2 and a half years I would be writing this post!

To celebrate this exciting occasion we wanted to do something interesting and fun that celebrates the Marketplace community and the sites themselves. So with that in mind, we are proud to present the 1,000,000 Members Infographic! We’ve packed it full of fascinating facts and data about our members and our nine Marketplaces.

Every day we continue to be amazed at the astonishing speed our community of creative members grows. We’ve enjoyed every minute of the journey and are proud and thankful of the achievements our members have made. Here’s to the next million!
