To all the designers contributing, I am begging you to bring in artists from other mediums to contribute to your designs/templates. The Envato designs has become a sea of sameness and therefore less useful.
Instead of coming up with 50 ways to make a bar chart inside of Illustrator using different colors and textures. Please try partnering with a local artist who does watercoloring, pencil sketching, colography, airbrush, cartooning, etc. Ask them to create the basic shapes you need for your designs and find ways to incorporate them.
Creativity is about combining unexpected things together.
I am encouraging everyone to keep pushing the limits of creativity and bring original design ideas to Envato.
A loyal customer,
