Design & Creative Teams

Digital asset management (DAM) for creative teams and designers

In a digital-first world, where everyone is fighting for the eyeballs of their customers, creative teams are often the key differentiator in whether or not a business is left behind. But with this responsibility comes the pressure of delivering fresh and exciting digital assets, in multiple formats. Using a digital asset management solution can help distributed teams stay on top.

DAM solutions have become an essential part of any creative team’s operational tool kit.

If you aren’t already using a digital asset management solution you are at risk of being one of the 83% of businesses that unnecessarily recreate digital assets purely because they can’t find them in their file storage solution. Using a digital asset management solution for graphic designers is the best way to connect your creative assets to the people who need them, quickly and easily and reduce endless requests for the same creative assets.

Problems with traditional file management platforms

Platforms with ‘per user’ license fees can get expensive quickly and often lead to fragmented teams

  • Finding design files can be difficult when they’re buried in a traditional project folder structure.
  • Keeping track of the most current design files can be difficult when you have multiple versions of the same thing.
  • Duplicating files in order to add them to a team member’s folder is cumbersome, time-consuming, and can lead to confusion over which design file is the right file.
  • File type and size limits can create issues for design projects and the design process.
  • Adding additional users can also add additional costs with traditional ‘per user’ license models.

The number of digital assets in design & creative teams

The number of digital assets that creative teams and designers are expected to produce on a daily basis has gone through the roof. With more creative resources being outsourced, managing these assets can be difficult for many creative operations professionals. Because there are more channels than ever before, the demand has increased for the same creative assets in multiple formats. Making sure the correct asset is available to the right person, and in the right format without a digital asset management solution for designers can be impossible.

So, if you've been asking yourself...

  • Why do I keep getting asked for the same files over and over again?
  • How do I help freelance graphic designers integrate with my team seamlessly?
  • What are file system alternatives to Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and OneDrive for sharing files with external users and clients?

Types of digital assets used by creative and design teams

You name the file type, and a creative or design team is likely to touch it. A busy creative team can be involved in web design, product design, the creation of sales and marketing collateral, packaging design, and more. This means that along with standard design files like AI and PSD files, they will also need to manage JPG, PNG, PDF, TIF, MOV, and whatever other design file springs to mind.

Without a central place to manage all of these file types, a creative team can soon become overwhelmed by digital asset requests. With good organization and a user-friendly file management solution for graphic designers – team members should be able to find what they are looking for without having to reach out to its creator. This is why file management for designers is so important!
