Collis Ta’eed Background
To say nothing of, Collis Ta’eed is half Iranian and half English. On one hand, his father is from Iran and his mother is from Yorkshire. On the other hand, Collis grew up in Papua New Guinea. Which as can be seen as one of the last places to be reached by the outside world. Additionally, Ta’eed was born in England and when he was three, the family moved to Papua New Guinea where his father run an IT firm.
When 17, Collis Ta’eed went to Australia to do his University studies. Where he concentrated on Mathematics and Science and came to the conclusion that; it was not for him to peruse. However, he finished his degree, but after graduation, he managed to teach himself design work. Just like the jmexclusives Founder Joseph Mucira did. Even though both of them got assistance through Online Web-based Programming and Design Courses and Tutorials.[caption id="attachment_16185" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] According to Collis Ta’eed, the business operates a number of global platforms where designers, developers and the general public can buy templates, stock footage, and stock photos.[/caption]
The Birth of Envato Platform
As a matter of fact, Collis being a self-taught programmer and designer, he joined a group of other design-oriented persons. In the light of design thirsty and programming lucrativeness, that is where he met his wife Cyan. Of course, as he Ta’eed puts it, he joined the group to meet women and so his guess is that it worked. Further, a few years later, they got married and they started a Freelance Business that would later precursor the foundation of Envato. Below is a Video by Envato Team showcasing ” A day in the life of the Envato CEO, Collis Ta’eed,” published back in 2013.
