Envato operates a group of digital marketplaces that sell creative assets for web designers, graphic designers, marketers and video producers including website themes, graphics and templates, video, audio, photography and 3D models.[3] It has over 2 million active buyers and sellers and over 10 million community members, along with over 5 million items for sale.[4] Its highest-trafficked marketplace, ThemeForest, is the 408 most visited site in the world according to Alexa.[5]

Envato was founded in 2006 by Collis Ta'eed, Cyan Claire, and Jun Rung.[6] It is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.[7]


Collis Ta'eed, Cyan Ta'eed and Jun Rung founded Envato in 2006 in Sydney, Australia.[8] Initially started as a lifestyle business that would allow the founders to work and travel, Envato grew beyond the founders’ initial expectations, following the rapid growth trajectory typical of a successful tech startup.[9] The company now employs over 500 people, many of whom work from Envato’s head office in Melbourne, Australia.[10]

Prior to founding Envato, Ta'eed grew up in Papua New Guinea, eventually moving to Australia to study mathematics and computer science. While at high school he befriended Jun Rung who studied design at University. Rung introduced Ta'eed to design, which quickly became a passion. Ta'eed soon left behind mathematics and computer science to focus on graphic design, teaching himself via online tutorials, magazines and design books, an experience which would later provide the inspiration for Envato's online learning service, Tuts+.[11][12]

  4. Note that articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; consider whether, copyright issues aside, your text is appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.
You can demonstrate that this text is in the public domain, or is already under a license suitable for Wikipedia. Click "Show" to see how.

  • Simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be cleanly removed or the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. (See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.)

  • It is always a good idea, if rewriting, to identify the point where the copyrighted content was imported to Wikipedia and to check to make sure that the contributor did not add content imported from other sources. When closing investigations, clerks and administrators may find other copyright problems than the one identified. If this material is in the proposed rewrite and cannot be easily removed, the rewrite may not be usable.

Freelancers set upfront pricing, scope and turnaround time for the services they offer.

Envato Sites[edit]

In November 2015 Envato launched Envato Sites, a website builder that uses themes from Envato Market creators and offers both free and paid options. The product was well-received as an easy-to-use and low-cost solution for small business owners.[26]

Envato Elements[edit]

Envato Elements is a subscription-based market that provides agencies, designers, and professionals with unlimited downloads of creative assets such as WordPress themes, fonts, graphics and templates, stock audio and video. Envato Elements officially launched in August 2016 and was later given the nickname "Netflix for Designers" due to the fact that it offers unlimited assets to designers with a subscription and also a mission to stop unfair compensation to designers.


In 2018, Envato acquired Mexican start-up Placeit, a digital template and mock-up tool.


In 2019, Envato launched Mixkit, a curated collection of stock video and animation that allows users to download each item for free.[27]
