Github is doing for designers what code writers have been doing for decades.

But will the design world embrace the technology? Likely no as the current Git Hub software is a bit code intensive.

What have they done? Enabled designers to track when changes are made to marketing pics or images or other designed items.

Since today the design biz has no industry standard for backing up old versions of files, monitoring changes, or even organizing documents.

Big hitters like Pixelapse, LayerVault, and even Adobe have tried solving the issue but none of them have solved the issue of changing designer habits.

It would appear that Github has the best vision for designers.

They even allow support for PSD viewing and diffing (monitoring the differences between files), enabling designers to see when PSDs have changed and view who changed what.

As previously mentioned, it is not likely designers will embrace the tech but the changes do represent interesting shift.
