The state of web font support

There are a handful of email clients with web font capability. However, and what makes web fonts worth reconsidering, is that the market share of those email clients has increased.


Create an “Add to Calendar” link

It can be useful to include an “Add to Calendar” link in your event emails so subscribers can add the events to their own calendars, allowing them to set up their own reminders.


Design systems: space, grids, layouts

The organization of space is key to great design. Spatial systems, grids, and layouts provide rules that give your designs a consistent rhythm, constrain decision making, and help teams stay aligned.
