Envato Studio, Envato’s freelance marketplace, will close at the end of August 2022 according to a company announcement. Another website run by Envato, Twenty20 will be closing its doors by the end of July 2022. Envato confirmed the news and in their update they mentioned that the main reason for closing down Envato Studio was a business one.

The company’s focus will be on the creative sector. It was an extremely difficult decision for the company. However, it is the result of the company’s desire to concentrate on the products that will bring it more creative success. Since its launch, back in 2014, Envato Studio has completed more than 230,000 jobs. Envato Studio freelancers have been offering the same services being offered on Spotlancer, varying from logo design to copywriting to WordPress customization.
