What is Envato Elements?

Envato Elements is a subscription-based service for designers and creatives, offering unlimited access to its wide range of graphic assets, educational resources, and creative tools.

Since its launch back in 2016, millions of people around the world have visited Envato Elements to buy and sell creative assets, learn new skills, and complete their creative projects. So whether you’re a graphic designer, illustrator, art director (or anything else in between), Envato Elements has just about everything and anything you could ever need.

Ready to take your work to the next level? Here’s why Envato Elements is the ultimate unlimited creative subscription for designers…

1. Download Unlimited Items on Envato Elements

While some creative stock websites limit your access to assets you’ve legally purchased, with an Envato Elements subscription, there are no download limits. That means you can access your favorite assets from the Envato Elements library whenever and wherever you want – as many times as you need them! A subscription to Elements not only saves you time and money, it allows you to try out multiple assets for your project until you get it right.

Envato Elements not only makes creating work easier, but it also makes it better with unlimited creative resources.

Designer and Elements user Peppy Colours explains, “Envato Elements not only makes creating work easier, but it also makes it better with unlimited creative resources. I have a lot of subscriptions to all kinds of things, but Envato Elements really does have it all and a lot of the stuff cannot be found on other creative resource sites.”

He continues, “Depending on what you’re looking to create, Envato Elements will help you get it done faster or get it done better. Sometimes both. The best thing about it is that we are all working with similar assets, but are able to create so many diverse and beautiful pieces.”

2. A Huge Range of Graphic Templates & Design Assets

Arguably one of the biggest benefits for designers is that an Envato Elements subscription doesn’t just provide you with unlimited downloads, but a vast range of asset types to choose from too – including photos, graphics, videos, templates, fonts, add ons, sound effects and more. 

With millions of items available on Envato Elements right now, no matter what kind of project you’re looking to create, you’re guaranteed to find everything you need in one place. 

Whatever I need, Envato Elements has it.

Digital artist and Elements user Frankie Lee Mwah says, “Whatever I need, Envato Elements has it. I get most of my vectors from other artists on Elements. It saves me time and the artist gets paid. I also use stock photography, fonts and music. There are approximately millions of images to choose from, upwards of 10,000 fonts and something like 50,000 audio tracks, so there is a good chance I will always find what I need.”

She reveals, “I would 100% recommend other artists use Envato Elements simply because the range of assets available is incredibly diverse. As a designer and artist, I can go from creating clinical business designs for clients, to creating flat out helter skelter collage art using the one platform (and subscription) to get all my assets. It saves a ton of time and money.”

3. Envato Elements License

For many digital designers who frequently use a large number of creative assets on a daily basis, content licensing can be a concern. To make it easy for you to do the right thing, all Envato Elements assets are covered by their simple, lifetime commercial license. With an Envato Elements subscription, you can rest assured that our broad commercial rights have got you covered.

If I download from Envato Elements, I am reassured that I can freely use any asset that I need to within the boundaries of the license.

Elements customer Frankie says: “I love using Envato Elements for the peace of mind that I am being a law-abiding citizen. It terrifies me that I might unwittingly create a legal scandal because of an asset I used in one of my artworks. It would unsettle me if my work upset or hurt another artist. That is not why we create. We are a community so we have to take care of each other. If I download from Envato Elements, I am reassured that I can freely use any asset that I need to within the boundaries of the license.”

4. Collections & Inspiration

If you’re a fan of scrapbooking, creating Pinterest boards or simply just keeping your ideas organized, then Collections are the perfect tool for you! Envato Elements Collections allow you to curate all of your favorite items and projects in one, easy-to-access place. You can use Collections for your own personal inspiration, to create mood boards, or even for collaboration with colleagues and clients.

“Usually Envato Elements comes into the art creation process after I have an idea,” explains Frankie. “I immediately go and hunt for items that fit my vision. But sometimes visiting Envato Elements is the start of the creation process. This is when I find something within the extensive library, that stirs up my creative juices.”

5. Powered By a Community of Designers

Whether creating for Envato is their hobby, side-hustle or a primary source of income, many of our authors have been able to achieve creative and financial freedom by selling their assets via Envato. So with an Envato Elements subscription, you’re able access high-quality, creative stock assets and supporting other designers and creators while you’re at it.

Aron reveals, “I have already started recommending Envato Elements to all of my artist friends, because I really think that Envato has something special that no other stock site has. The price is almost funny for what you get after downloading photos, videos, fonts, 3D pictures, brushes, overlays and more. So, if you’re reading this – what you are waiting for? Go get your subscription and take your work to the next level.”
