So we’re pretty good at design…well not all of us, but here at GraphicMail we’ve got a neat design team with ace skills. Thing is though, not everyone’s got the training or years (and it shows) of experience to design like a pro, right? Right.
In saying that, our design star Warren has thrown together a little something that you might like. If you’ve been playing around on our application for a while and consider yourself more or less skilled, here are some more cool tricks you can try if HTML is your thing.

This month we sat down to dine with One Eleven’s Mangia Monday dinner special. We really like One Eleven’s promotional email for this special night.

Now look; here at GraphicMail we’re big on marketing, key metrics, reporting and such. The thing is, though, that we’re pretty hung-up on design too; so much so that our in-house designers are ever-so often grilled for some top tips and insights that you too can put to good use.
