Previewing the final project
(SOUND) Hi, I'm Chris Converse, and in this course we're going to create a responsive HTML email design, featuring a rather complex layout that will adapt to varying screen sizes. Now, considering that older email clients require us to use table based layouts, I'll show you strategies for making a table based layout that's responsive. And this technique, we'll render acceptably in over 30 of today's most popular web based and native application based e-mail clients. And another feature of the design that we are going to build is its ability to gracefully degrade an older e-mail clients.
We'll design this with background graphics, rounded corners and shadows. But we'll apply these elements in such a way that they don't sacrifice the design's integrity (UNKNOWN) e-mail clients. So I hope this course sounds interesting to you. And if so, let's get started.
