I designed the FHM Happy Friday weekly email newsletter, in conjunction with developer Donald Howard. Responsive email design was a reasonably new concept to both of us, namely because email as a tech is still incredibly archaic. Table-based html is still in full force, and a lot of CSS techniques simply don’t work on email. Therefore, using media queries to scale or hide content isn’t always reliable.
Another huge problem was that this design had to be implemented into an email delivery system as an unbreakable template. So someone with only basic html skills would be able to update the content on a weekly basis. Donald and I were very pleased with the finished product.
