I applied around Christmas and was rejected, so I’ve just spent the last 3 months creating a ton of design products just to apply to Creative Market. Annnd I was rejected yet again.
I had thought a portfolio application could just be a preview of your style and potential, which is why I haven’t filled each portfolio item with countless feature images… but it’s starting to look like I’ll need to build an entire “shop” of products before even getting accepted. But that seems risky - spending another couple months of time building up an entire “shop”, full preview images and all, just to get rejected again.
Any feedback on my portfolio or insight into how to get accepted? Do we need to build a whole shop preview to hope to get accepted? Can anyone hope to get accepted without already having a successful shop elsewhere? How important do you think the text submission is, maybe I’m saying the wrong things.
