After everything that went on last week, it has been really nice to settle back into a normal working week. Well, perhaps not quite normal, it’s our 8th birthday after all!

Envato Roundup

To celebrate our 8th Birthday, we gave all of our authors an entire day of 100% rates.
Also for our birthday, we redesiged the community badges.
If you would like to take a closer look at those gorgeous badges, Kate wrote about the design process.
You can meet Tuts+ Mananger David Appleyard, in this weeks episode of Envato Stories.
Oh, and this week our CEO Collis took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge
…and just because, here’s the super-slomo GIF version as well:
