October 10th was the second Codepen Brighton Meet up. An awesome idea to bring together a group of codepen users of any level of coding experience and no matter the size of the codepen.
Whether you are a designer, marketer, just starting out or have been in the email industry for multiple years, the Modern HTML Email guide is for you. Author, Jason Rodriguez, has compiled lessons he has learnt throughout his impressive career and has thankfully (you will be thankful) passed them on.
Available in print and digital, the guide walks through everything from marketing basics to advance HTML techniques, teaching you how to design an email from the ground up. He even goes as far as to include responsive techniques and a sample so you can see the examples in action.
All in all, a guide thoroughly recommended by the team here at Action Rocket. To download a free sample or to get more information, go over to Modern HTML Email now.
A tool that should be in every email designer’s toolbox: Litmus Scope. Sharing email campaigns and code is no longer a difficult task between your team as this tool allows you to instantly capture and forward campaigns using the bookmarklet or app.
In a single click you are able to create previews of campaigns, mobile or desktop and share with your colleagues without the email breaking or having to spend time taking screen shots. Take a look at how the service works here:
This free to use service is available via Gmail in the browser, or as a Mac app. However, Litmus have hinted this will be extended to other mail services in future. Watch this space.
