I’ve found the JD system has been great for me when it comes to general life admin, school, and work files, etc. However, I find it falls apart for me when I’m trying to organize photos and images. Specifically all the files I use for making art.
I’ve dedicated folders [70-79] to my art practice, but can’t figure out the best way to structure it.
I typically have a folder dedicated to each art project that contains the final piece, the rough draft, reference images, etc.
I’d ideally like to have a view of all finished pieces in one place, but I also don’t want to separate it from it’s folder.
I’ve thought of categorizing [70-79] by type of art/medium but then I often find some that can fit within more than one of those. I also have client work or projects for an event but most of it is personal. I considered organizing by year but then I’ll be wanting to find a specific piece but can’t remember what year I made it in and will have to search through each one.
I’m likely overthinking it, or expecting too much. But would love some insight anyway!
