Email design differs from web design because the result is not going to be shown in a web browser. Your design is going to be shown in an app: a desktop app, a mobile app, or a web app (like gmail.com or outlook.com). For this reason, the user interaction is different and the elements of HTML and CSS that you can use in your design are not the same.
- If you have to design an email, you can be inspired by others’ designs.
- And you can use a specific editor.
- But you always have to keep in mind the restrictions of the different apps that are going to show your email.
