Cool email design ideas that don’t require Photoshop
Make a really nice button
- Create a one cell table
- Set the padding between 5-10
- Choose a bright background colour that coordinates with your design
- Pale colour for border 2px width
- Choose a font and style that coordinates with but is subtly different to your main font.
Make some awesome bullets
Use punctuation, fonts, sizes and colours to create some pretty bullets. Here are some I prepared earlier:
Create a pretty table
Here are two I created earlier:
In the table settings I added some padding, a bright background colour and a white border.
To make this table look really professional I added some padding and a grey border that matches the email background colour. I then changed the background colour of some individual cells to help structure the information more neatly.
Use paragraphs or structure tables to create nice designs. For example with this email I could have created the 2nd and 3rd winners entirely in Photoshop however a table with a large font and an image works just as well!
