    How do you organise your job folders?

    Just started my first big agency job and they organise work differently to what I'm used to.

    They keep all assets in the "support" folder, but all main files in "indesign_psd_artwork". Like this...

    What's the best way you know of? How do you do it?

    Is having so many subfolders a waste of time, or a safeguard against accidentally deleting everything?

    Thanks

    That's pretty much the same as I do it...always sub divide. I don't understand the term support...unless it's supporting materials for a project and you've got that covered elsewhere.

    Being pedantic, I'd say it was asset architecture/management rather than workflow.

    But seriously, I have one of these Client Templates for each client:

    You need 3 folders:

    /Assets: for copy, logo and other images provided by the client/research

    /PSD: editable files, can be PSD or AI or whatever you are using...

    /JPGs: for screenshots of your mockups and work in progress

    • And you can have a WIREFRAME folder under assets or PSD as well...
