The Layout Creation System

Click the link below in a new tab to see a test run of the layout creation system and how you can create a complete newsletter in under 6 minutes.

The layout creation system was designed with a clear goal in mind: allow people to focus on the most important part of the newsletter – the content – by providing a way to easily create and kind of layout, that works in all major email clients, in minutes…

What the layout creation system is? A collection of code snippets, placeholder images and dummy text that allow you to mock-up any design in minutes in 4 easy steps:

  1. Select a Base File (the shell that will hold the modules that will contain the actual newsletter content)
    • save it as a new html file
    • read in documentation how to customize it if needed
  2. Add Modules (precoded tables used to create different colomn structures) inside the base file
    • add the modules in the base file starting from the comment <!- START MAIN CONTENT . ADD MODULES BELOW ->
    • add module dividers or
      ’s between the modules to create space
  3. Add content in the modules
    • add your actual texts and pictures
    • use the placeholder images in /placeholders and the text from /placeholders/lorem-ipsum.txt for fast mock-up if you don’t have the final text or pictures available
  4. Finish
    • copy your html file along with the /images and /placeholders folders to another location
    • host all images on a server and change all paths to absolute paths in the layout file
    • inline the css using the online service provided
    • test and send
