Make email better—in London!

The Email Design Conference brings the email community together to celebrate their craft and give marketers and designers a platform to learn, share, and grow.

Free from product pitches and meaningless hype, we’re all about content: teaching designers, marketers, and strategists how to produce emails that look great, perform well, and engage audiences.

Why TEDC London

TEDC London brings our mission to make email better international for the second year in a row. The London conference offers a half day of workshops, a day and a half full of content and lots of fun networking opportunities. At the request of 2015 TEDC attendees, we are expanding this year’s agenda to feature dual-track sessions on Day Two!

Led by Jason Rodriguez & Kevin Mandeville, Litmus

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.

Option 2: Progressive Enhancement/Interactive Email

This workshop will lead attendees through advanced email client targeting methods, such as Outlook conditional comments, to more efficiently identify and troubleshoot rendering problems. The workshop will largely focus on progressive enhancement techniques and delivering optimized experiences for subscribers. Topics include designing and developing CSS animation, interactive email, and dynamic email design and content.
