    Simple Playoff: Share your current layer set.

    Are you a messy type with your layers or well organized?

    You can learn a lot from other designers on how best to organize your layer pallet.

  3. I was messy few years ago but now everything is well organized. I have my own "system" that is making mine and frondevs work much simpler :) Just have to be consistent!

  8. I've always been organized, but recently I have started to name/structure my layers as what I plan to call the item in the code. The awesome folks at Macaw gave me the idea. Still playing around with exactly how it will work for different elements.

  9. My layers for web design. Everything in it's place. The red group layers are always the modal boxes or interactions in the website.

  11. Haven't posted anything for a while, well, here's something what I've been busy for two months (among other things).

  12. I'm generally very very disorganised, and prefer to rapidly create designs. My layer pallet can look very much like this...250+ layers later. But I will go back and rename at the latter stages, removing all unwanted layers with a general tidy up.

  13. I'm not proud of it but this is the reality. Photoshop is usually a place where I explore and brainstorm and ebb and flow. That process is and should be pretty messy. I'll clean things up to some degree when the time is right.

  14. I keep it pretty simple. Everything is ordered top to bottom, left to right by module. I use Smart Objects for most pieces and create layer comps for easy review of interaction layers.

  19. I had to have a go! If there is something I don't approve of it is messy layer pallets, should be a crime.

  22. Here's a view of my foldering technique. Upon first glance, it's fairly common to most other practices in terms of establishing a top-down hierarchy of Modal elements and a Header, all the way down to the Footer and BG / Background folders.

    I think what helps separate my flow from most of my other colleagues is how I use the folder colors to indicate state or purpose. Check out an older shot explaining that here:
