Personalization is about so much more than a [first_name]. It’s about understanding what drives a person’s decision making process, where they are in that process, and placing all of it within the context of their specific challenges.

In our Responsive Email 101: HTML and CSS Basics webinar, we took a look at the mobile email landscape, the foundations of creating responsive emails, and why these techniques are crucial to improving the subscriber experience. We also covered email client support and demonstrated how to code a responsive email from scratch. We had a full house for the webinar, so while we tried to answer as many questions as we could during the Q&A portion, we weren’t able to get to them all. In this post, we round up some of the most commonly asked questions.

In November, we joined forces with Beyond the Envelope’s Paul Airy for a guest webinar on using creative typography in email. Paul took a look at the role of typography and user experience in email design and development. In particular, he focused on the creative use of HTML text, so that email designers can make emails that look great—even when images are disabled. With over 1,000 registrants, it was hard for Paul to answer all of the questions people had during the Q&A portion of the webinar. Fortunately, he extended his generosity to bring the questions we missed here on the blog.

In this webinar, Paul Airy, Email Designer and Developer at Beyond the Envelope, will look at the role of typography in email design and development and, in particular, the creative use of HTML text, so that you can make your emails look great without compromising on user experience.
