We’re excited to announce the opening of our first…zoo?

Originally posted on Envato Notes

What’s this? Another launch from Envato? And what is Envato Zoo? Perhaps a new marketplace for buying and selling exotic animals? Read on and all will be discovered…

You’ve probably noticed that Envato has kind of a thing for animals and all of our marketplaces have something to do with an animal habitat. Whether it’s forests, rivers or dunes, we follow a pretty particular pattern when it comes to naming our sites. And to tell you the truth, coming up with new and appropriate names for our new marketplaces is getting rather difficult – SpreadsheetSewer anyone?

Along with our animal habitat names we also like to pick a mascot animal that would typically reside in those habitats. A bear for ThemeForest, a bee for VideoHive and some type of lizardy thing for AudioJungle. The list goes on.

So, we thought, we should really have a home for all of our marketplace animals. A place for people to come and see them, and download cute pictures and wallpapers of them all – we’re pleased to introduce Envato Zoo!

What’s in the Zoo?

The zoo currently contains all of our Envato mascots that have been beautifully drawn by talented illustrator Pasquale D’Silva. We asked Pasquale to create a set of sweet illustrations for the community. With these illustrations we’ve put together vectors and wallpaper backgrounds for your desktop or mobile device for you to download. All the cute and cuddly Envato animals are available – although the CodeCanyon eagle has a bit of a temper and the GraphicRiver fish has been know to bite.

\\

Have fun with the animals

Envato’s mascot vectors are freely available under a Creative Commons non-commercial license that will allow you to make your own wonderful collections and wallpapers. We encourage you to play around with the animals and show us what you come up with here on the marketplace forums!

However, please be careful around the animals. Should you be eaten, it could make the animals very sick, and that would make us sad. Not because you were eaten, but because it costs a lot of money to pump a bear’s stomach.

We designed it in house but got the build done externally I believe, not sure who we used.

It’s curious to see that the size of the animals fits the amount of sales of each marketplace. :)

For the build we actually used Psd2html.com! They did a good job too! All of our regular devs and front-end devs are pretty swamped as we have a lot of work in the pipeline. So it was nice to still be able to do these things which never classify as ‘urgent’ but are always fun :-)
