E-newsletter; design and code

Howdy folks,

So I want to design and code an email newsletter for use on mailchimp/constant contact/Aweber... whatever mail client, where do I begin?

Is this the same process as designing a one page website for example? Do I just get my text editor out and start there? Is there frameworks that exist like boilerplate for example?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Darren

Theres a lot of resources to help you get started at




The design process is slightly different to modern web design. You need to use a table based design with inline styles but basically you can achieve this in your regular text editor.

I would download a few templates from here and have a look over the code.


Hope this helps

Thanks David
