The Envato Marketplaces Team

Earlier this year I stepped back into the driver’s seat of Marketplaces. It’s been over two years since I was directly running the biggest part of Envato, and after my first three months back on the job, I am loving it! Today I wanted to loop back to give an update to the community on what we’re working on, and where we are going.

This would also help us enable the greatest number of authors to sell their work. Continue Reading
