I’m new on Envato and I just uploaded my first design last week… just to get rejected after 7 days. When I tried to determine why, I got generic answer, and the advice to upload it here and ask for your opinion. So here I am! Anyone got any ideas why they hard rejected me?
By the way - I “did my homework” and read everything they said on the topic and here are my guesses:
Envato has too many logos with rockets: I saw that there are moderate number of logos with rockets or for start ups uploaded on Graphic river, so I decided that this design would be fitting for a first entry. However after I read the article about possible reasons why my item could be hard rejected, I kind of suspect that they felt that my item is not contributing to the variety of logos on the website.
I did not list my used resources for the making of the preview images of the logo - too late did I see that they make authors list resources (such as mockups and photos). I’ve used only CC0 resources that are allowed to be used by Envato standards, but I did forgot to link the sources when I submitted the item, since I was under the impression that it’s necessary only if you’ve used them in your end files.
I used 7-zip to create my zip files and they couldn’t open the zips and actually see what I submitted: again I did not see that the system sometimes gets bugs when this compressing program was used until after I got my hard rejection.
They’re simply not looking for any more logo submissions at this point - I also consider this an option, since I saw that logos are not exactly trending over at Graphic river, so this might be the case too.
What do you guys think? What could be the issue?
Otherwise I prepared my logo layered, fully editable, in two colour versions in the end files, solid silhouette black and the final files come in ai, eps and psd. Also as a bonus I added two variations of the logo - vertical and horizontal. And of course - I used free fonts + prepared a nice help file with detailed description.
