There are no excuses for messy or disorganised source files. Always organise your assets and descriptively name folders and layers. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a huge team or the only person on a project. The more organised your files are, the easier it is for you or others to work with if you have to revisit projects months later. It’s a matter of respect and personal pride, and it takes seconds. Imagine if a developer had a function called ‘Copy of Layer 368’ in their code. Would you employ a housekeeper that cleaned by hiding trash in drawers?
