Option 1: The Elements of Email Design
A detailed look at the basics of coding for email, this workshop digs into the individual components that go into every email campaign. Along with learning how to effectively develop and use typography, images, links, and buttons, you will learn how these elements work together to create amazing email templates that work across the modern email landscape. You’ll leave with a stronger understanding of the fundamentals of email design, how to build modern responsive emails, and plenty of resources and code examples to take back to use in your own campaigns. This workshop is perfect for intermediate email designers looking to refine their skills and general email marketers who need to get a better understanding of the principles behind email design and development.

This workshop will lead attendees through advanced email client targeting methods, such as Outlook conditional comments, to more efficiently identify and troubleshoot rendering problems.
