Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing your layer structure, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- The last thing I do before handing any project…off to a developer is I go in and I organize…the layer structure so that it makes…sense to them and also to me…because as we've been working throughout…this course, you might have noticed…that we stuck everything we did…on the UI layer and inside of that UI layer…nothing is organized whatsoever.…So what we want to do is we want to be able to…create sort of a structure in here that…makes more sense to us.…First thing I'm going to do is I'm going to…make sure that all of the guides are out of my way…because that takes up a significant portion…of this document here.…
Since everything is sort of lined up…on this grid already, we don't necessarily have to…have the guides but I do want them so the developer…can see exactly how many columns each individual item…is supposed to spread when he starts creating…this layout using html and CSS.…So what I'm going to do is create a brand new layer.…This is something that's not originally in the plans,…but usually when I use grids, I throw this in there.…
