Ok so I'm a newb at graphic design for sure. I can hardly hack my way through GIMP/Inkscape/PS, but I want to solve this problem:
Lets say you are working on a logo, you've got a few different types. Ideally you have just the symbolic logo that is meant to be shown on a light background, that same logo re-colored for a dark background, and then both of those variants with the name of the company on it.
You get the idea. Now the problem is that if I want to change the logo, I have to redesign every file. This cannot possibly be the production workflow, and if it is I want to fix that.
Coming from the software engineering world, it seems like there ought to be a way to make a change to a single component (text, logo, etc), and have the change applied to all dependent files. Any way to do this already?
