01 — Background

Originally called Microlancer, Envato Studio was launched in 2014 as a way to get small design jobs done quickly, by dependable freelancers you can trust. Plugging into Envato's existing user base of over 3 million, Envato Studio offered a simple solution for fulfilling small-scope freelance work like logo design, illustration, landing page creation, and other design customizations.

02 — Process

Working closely within a medium-sized team and some very tight timeframes I collaborated with the Envato product team to launch a fully functioning minimum viable product within three months. During this time I created high-fidelity and lo-fi prototypes, user flows, conversion funnels, and core product interactions. We learned fast and iterated quickly based on our key learnings.


"Envato Studio brings our existing, enormous customer base access to fast turnaround, affordable, custom services. It's a huge new area for us, and we're incredibly excited about developing the platform into an increasing range of service types."

Collis Ta'eed, Envato Cofounder and CEO

03 — Outcomes

Envato Studio was created as an online platform for freelancers to connect with small to medium businesses, agencies, developers, designers, and freelancers. Being the sole product designer on this project provided me with a great opportunity to explore various UX/UI and product design methodologies while also providing a passionate community of hand-picked designers, developers, and digital talent with a way to earn an extra income and small to medium businesses to get their design work completed.

04 — Outcomes

As of April 2019, the service provider payout has reached $10 Million on Envato Studio A huge milestone and couldn't be achieved without the talented creators and studio community all working towards getting creative jobs done!
