The Unofficial Envato Melbourne Meetup

My Unofficial Envato Melbourne Meetup

Back in January I managed to meet up with some of the team members of Envato HQ.

Even though this was not an official meet up and more of a casual get together, it was still really nice to put the real life persons to their avatars.

The meet up was a good opportunity to provide some feedback to the team on what some of the pains as well as some of the experiences we face in being a ThemeForest author and using the marketplaces as a whole.

The Concept

Creating a Landing Page: The Concept

Following on from the last post where I talked about how I get inspiration by creating mood boards, I would now like to share with you how I go about creating the concept of my templates.

There are various ways one can do this.
