Don’t design your emails

I just came across a post from 2016, about why you shouldn’t design your email campaigns. This probably doesn’t apply to all situations and industries, but I know for a fact that many clients pay for lots of hours of crafting, debugging and testing custom templates that aren’t really worth the time.

Daily UI #010 – Social Share

Social Share This is the result: Definitely needs more love, but that was the work I could produce in the time I had. What is pictured here is a hover state on the Facebook marker. When hovered, it shows the share count. Same would happen on Twitter and Google+. Maybe later on I can dig into animating […]

Daily UI #008 – 404 page

404 page I really like jazzy 404 pages. However, I also like them to be straight to the point and very lightweight. Also, I think the “404” code adds absolutely nothing to the user, so I scratched that from the main copy. Fonts used Playfair Display for main header. Lato for copy.

Daily UI #004 – Calculator

Calculator Here’s friday’s design challenge: a calculator. I definitely wanted to polish this a bit further, but I think at this stage I’ve learned quite a bit in the process. I designed it in Sketch so I gained a bit of knowledge of the tool, also used some mockups for OS X components. I wish I had […]

Daily UI #003 – Landing Page

Landing Page (above the fold) That was today’s hint. It proved to be more challenging than previous ones. One of the reasons is because you need to think of a whole concept in which to base your design. A landing page is something that can take hours or days to do right, and I did this in less […]
