This is a good idea, Sam.
This sort of concept is something I employ on the code side of my work. I could see this evolving into the rubocop of PSD work. Similarly, I think it would be interesting to come up with a community-driven open style guide for what designers deliver and what developers (or whoever) working with those PSDs want to receive.
Establishing this kind of language could be very useful. I'm interested in collaborating on such a project. If you think I might be of some help, hit me up!
Beware letting the creator storing all of your PSDs of unreleased work on their server. Be careful what you upload!
(Not that this is happening, but it could, and you might not want to risk it if you're uploading work work)
This is really awesome, I started doing freelance work at this company and no one keeps their PSDs organized... finally something to show them the errors of their ways.
I guess you've already seen the service I built and released back in September. For everyone else: http://www.psdvalidator.com
I’m seeing an error:
The domain that you are trying to use does not exist. Please click on one of the links below to help find your site.
Hopefully an easy fix? (I don’t think it’s my end?)
Seems silly that you would get a worser grade just because your PSD has many fonts and font sizes used.
Who is PSD Grade to say that my project doesn't need many different fonts and font sizes?
Your PSD is a100% A
Tried with the sample-PSD.
Why are you failing that poor PSD for having 8 different font sizes?
nice work sam! glad to see ohio university representing.
how does it work with uploading PSDs? are they stored somewhere/do you have access to them or are they just used for grading and then tossed?
I think something's up with the DNS here in Europe.. been seeing this since posted: http://cl.ly/image/3U1v0s2u1a1h
VERY great concept. Although it needs work. I keep getting 125% even on my worst PSDs.
I think this idea could be really useful if seen through. To keep you or your team honest about creating good PSDs in a measurable way.
whoops all fixed @jonathan S :D
www prefix doesn't seem to work, site is http://psdgrade.com/
