The Tuts+ YouTube channel is now one of the most popular in the world for creative and digital courses and tutorials.
Tuts+, Envato’s educational hub for creative and digital skills, has passed one million subscribers to its YouTube channel this week.
As one of the web’s largest libraries of free creative and design tutorials, Tuts+ offers courses right across the digital-creative spectrum, from graphic design and photography to video-editing, web design, coding and business skills.
Tuts+ has helped millions of creatives learn new skills and level up their expertise since it was launched in 2007. In 2021 alone, Tuts+ assisted more than 6 million on-site users per month alongside 26 million views on YouTube for the year.
Adam Noonan, Envato’s Head of Marketing, Tuts+ and Mixkit, said it was a terrific milestone to reach, even if was a goal that had seemed far-fetched only two years ago. “We only really started adding a lot of content in 2019 as we wanted to help more people find the answers they needed. Then as people around the world went through numerous lockdowns in the pandemic, we noticed a sharp increase in interest in the courses and tutorials we had on offer.”
“This new milestone clearly makes Tuts+ one of the most popular YouTube channels in the world for people wishing to grow their creative and digital skills.”
While Tuts+ offers courses right across the digital-creative spectrum, the most popular course by far is Photoshop for Beginners, clocking up 11 million views and counting. As Adam Noonan notes, not only is it a comprehensive course that helps people learn new skills, but it also demonstrates how you can use creative assets like those available via Envato Elements to bring your ideas to life.
“As a company, we’re united around the idea of empowering our creative community to thrive, making creative success not just accessible but achievable for all,” said Adam Noonan. “Tuts+ and the accompanying YouTube channel have played such an important role in helping creatives all around the world learn new skills and contribute to their success. That is what makes this milestone so gratifying.”
