Ask DN: Structuring large projects in Sketch

    If the benefits of keeping everything together are in any way about presentation you can use zeplin to help. That way you can split up (in the beginning, later, mid way through the project, whatever your heart desires) the Sketch files and just publish everything to the single zeplin project. If it's a really dense app with a lot of flows, using the tags in zeplin is very helpful.

    This worked for us at Vimeo with the mobile apps. That way different files can be used, you just have to keep track of naming and versioning.

      Yeah we do use Zeplin although primarily as a reference resource for developers. Keeping track of naming and versioning is a good callout. Have been guilty in the past of jumping straight into something with eagerness and then having to go back to put structure on things later, always harder that way.
