    i think a lot of people use a folder in the /data directory for css imagery, design images, etc.

    but i actually like to put them in media [in the tree structure] so others can update them. I create a folder called cssAssets and create and upload them, then reference them in the css.

    it can be a little bit tedious, but i feel it gives another designer/developer a little more control without the necessity for ftp access.

    I've stored site design assets in the Media section and also in a custom folder that has FTP access. Both can work well. I base my choice on the skills of the people that will work with the site long-term, how frequent or extensive the changes might be, availability of FTP access on the host, etc.

    For myself, I use an ftp-able folder for site design imagery and the Media section for imagery/files related to the content itself (such as a photo included in a press release). That's my preference, anyway, unless there's a reason to put everything directly in the Media section (as Bob has suggested).

    One of the nice things about umbraco is that you can work the way you want, rather than being forced to work in a specific way that might not fit your needs.

    cheers,
    doug.
