I recently caught up with Graphic Designer, Teeravit Tanpungchoey to ask him a few questions about his work on the Envato Marketplaces!
– Tell us a little bit about yourself, and what you do?
Hi, my name is Teeravit, a Graphic Designer from Thailand, a big fan of Japanese anime. I’m not actually graduated from Art school. I use to be a gamer with a fascination of Artwork, especially landscape concept art. I mean, how awesome it is, to see your 2D concept art transform into a 3D world and you can run around (by your in game character) like that! So, that’s why I begin turning my ideas and designs into real stuff that people can use too :)
– What’s your biggest achievement so far on the Envato Marketplaces?
Well, maybe hitting a 2,000 sales is the biggest one for me now! Actually, I’m on 1,955 at the moment, but it won’t be too long – hopefully! At first I never thought that I’d reach this number of sales because there are already a lot of great competitors out there, all doing great jobs, with more joining the design industry every day.
– Which item that you’ve made are you most proud of?
I think, it was my “Flick” Email Template, because at that time I didn’t have lots of sales yet and I was already tired of making items which didn’t have any sales at all. Then, the day that Apple announced iOS 7 made Flat Design even more popular. So, I started to make a new Flat template immediately. It was one of the first Flat Designs in the Email Template category. After the first week of it being approved, I saw the sales goes up like never before. This really did cheer me up a lot :)
– How do you come up with the ideas for your items?
The way I think of the ideas for my items is slightly weird. Actually, the inspiration for my “Papir” Email Template came from seeing a crumpled piece of paper! The same thing happened with my Christmas template, when I saw the snow on the news. It’s strange, but it seems to work for me!
– If you could be one author on the Envato Marketplaces, who would it be and why?
Hmm, that’s a pretty tough question! There are a ton of people that I really love, but I can’t choose just one – I want to be every author that I’m following, that’s all!
– What are you working on at the moment?
There is an ‘Unbounce Templates’ competition this month, which I’m joining in with. Everything is still really new for me and there’s still a lot to learn. I’m not working on any big projects at the moment though.
– Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
There’re a lot of great people out there. If you want to start something new, the time is now. The Envato Marketplaces are great places to learn lots from others.
We’d like to thanks Teeravit once again for his great answers! If you have any more questions you’d like to ask Teeravit, leave a comment below and I’ll be sure to pass them on to him. To view his items, visit his Envato portfolio.
