I have graphic design projects coming in and out of my email every day. The best way for me to track them is with an online organizational tool, instead of just leaving a mound of emails in my inbox to sift through.
I would recommend Trello to anyone who needs to organize their workload, lists or any business details, especially if it’s on a per project basis.
What Is Trello?
Trello is an online board you can use for free. It allows you to create lists and then “cards” beneath those lists. Some features they have are the ability to:
Add and share images
Organize your cards by colour
Share your cards with others to comment on
Add due dates
Drag and drop your cards around, in any order
How To Use It?
I create lists of things “to do”, things I am “waiting on” and projects I’ve sent to the “print shop”. Then I create a card based on each project. I also add comments on each card, so I know the status of the project or any details the customer has given me. If you choose to, you can always share your board with your clients to have them comment on projects, but I personally choose not to.
Who Is This For?
This is for anyone who needs to organize business or personal life. You can even use it for organizing your home renovations, chores, family outings, events, vacations, etc. I hope this helps you guys. I enjoy sharing tools I use, especially to web/graphic designers and developers.
