Thank you for letting me know about the layout grids.
I am sorry that you had to restore a previous version of the file. I don’t remember making any additional changes after the first corrections you made a few months ago, but I will make sure to come to you from now on before looking into anything on that Figma page.
Although I believe I followed the exact export instructions that you stated, I do remember seeing that my export button at the bottom right said, “export as layers,” so perhaps this is why certain images aren’t exporting correctly for me, not because of the red layout grids.
Either way, our social media/membership drive team is looking to start sharing some of your awesome graphics on the Resonate social pages, as well as with others who want to help spread the word about the membership drive, so would you be able to help us export all of your graphic files for us to share?
I was looking to put the following file types for each graphic into the respective folder:
Although all of these file types would give us the most flexibility in the types of graphic files we have available to share with others, I know this might be a little bit of overkill, so if it’s too much work/would take up too much storage space, then just an export of the PNG file type for each graphic should be great!
Once exported, could you please add all of the graphic files to their respective folders within this main “Social Media” folder (Social Media – Google Drive).
I started to try and do this with the “General” tab, so feel free to fill in the setup I started with as a reference, but you can definitely replace any graphics that are there with your latest versions.
Lastly, all of this brought to our attention at last week’s fundraising/membership drive session that since working inside figma is a bit confusing for some of the people working on this membership drive initiative, would we maybe be able to make any future comments/suggestions for edits about the files by commenting on the file itself within the newly created Google Drive folder, instead of figma?
We are just trying to find a bit better system moving forward so that
A. Our team doesn’t accidentally mess up any of your awesome graphic design work.
B. You can still use the software that you prefer.
C. Our team has an easier way to suggest edits and potentially make quick edits to things that need to be taken care of on short notice so that you don’t have to be the only person who has to make all of the changes/is theoretically the only person with editing privileges (because of some of our team’s inexperience with Figma).
Let us know what will work best for everyone moving forward (@richjensen, @brndnkng, @ode12, @Timothee,), and I am looking forward to working with you all to help bring in more Resonate members and spreading the word about all of the awesome things Resonate has been working on!
