I have been working in a startup for the last year and as the only designer, I have had the privilege (and challenge) of creating a file and folder system for our team.
It has worked flawlessly until now and as we are experiencing growth, our system needs an upgrade. Instead of worrying about 1-2 manufacturers with minimal rounds for approval, we are dealing with 5-6 all in different stages of development.
From print to web to product design to marketing, our folders are becoming more convoluted than we'd like.
- What are some resources that have helped you keep order within your folders?
- Any tips for how to think about hierarchy so that files can be found quicker?
Any other advice as well would be greatly appreciated!
