Keep A Regularity To Your Formatting

On any professional’s device, there are many files to work with. You sometimes get to choose how these files are named. For example, let’s say that you’re a graphic designer. You have many .PSD Photoshop files on your hard drive. Some are drafts, some are final pieces ready to send to clients. Consider how you might label and index them.

First, it might be that labeling the project is appropriate. You might write ‘08/05DraftAdidasProject’ for the new poster you’ve designed. This has a date to begin with, the status of its completion (draft or final piece,) who the client is, and if it’s a project, an edit or some other method of your work. If you name the next file ‘8thMayAdidasFinalPSD’ you have then turned that normal structure on its head, and to that end you’ve now upset the flow, and have caused a worrisome error. To that extent, you’re bound to confuse yourself. Try to keep a regularity to your formatting.
