Creating a Responsive HTML Email
Designing HTML emails can be challenging, considering the limited capabilities of desktop and web email readers, combined with the small screen sizes of mobile devices. Enter responsive HTML email. Let Chris Converse show you how to design an elegant email that will adapt to varying screen sizes and render correctly in over 30 different mail clients, including Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and multiple versions of Outlook, as well as Android, iOS, and Windows phones. Learn to add complex features like background graphics, rounded corners, and shadows that don't break your email when they can't be displayed. Then create call-to-action buttons, add animation, and style the whole thing with CSS. Plus, explore tools and services that will help you test your campaigns. Start now and learn what is possible with HTML email.

Previewing the final project
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Chris Converse, and in this course we're gonna create a responsive HTML e-mail design, featuring a rather complex layout that will adapt to varying screen sizes. Now, considering that older e-mail 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 will 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're gonna build is its ability to gracefully degrade in older e-mail clients. We'll design this with background graphics, rounded corners, and shadows but we'll apply these in such a way that they don't sacrifice the design's integrity if they're not supported in certain e-mail clients.
So, I hope this course sounds interesting to you, and if so, let's get started.
