Hi guys - brief introduction - I'm Alex, I'm 19 years old and from England. About 2 months ago I started as a junior email developer at a UK based company called eMosaic.
Just here to show off a bit really, feedback on my coding is always great and what-not!
A note; I didn't design these emails, I was given a PSD which I then used to create. These were coded by me from scratch.
You'll note that a lot of them we avoid using images where possible this is so they look nice with and without images turned on! Here's the links;

If you have any feedback I'd love to hear it. I'm also to happy to help with any queries you have and always up for a discussion relating to email design!
Hi Alex, thank you so much for posting your work here, plus for helping out on the forums! You're on the right track here (and I say that as someone who started off cutting and coding designs), so keep up the great work - we look forward to seeing more great work from you :D
Thanks for the reply RH.
Any tips or tricks on where to expand my game?
Hi Alex, I'd say def check out our resources on mobile email design. It's increasingly in demand and you'll be head and shoulders above many designers if you can build responsive designs.
That aside, make sure your code is nicely formatted - my mentor passed that on as an early lesson to me :) It might seem like a rather silly tip, but it makes your final product look polished (especially to other designers). Keep going - you're onto a good thing! :D
I'm currently looking into every aspect of making emails mobile friendly. My only issue at the moment is that Litmus doesn't seem to test them very well!
Off topic question; Am I allowed to submit designs for the free template gallery?
Hi Alex, we're currently not contacting designers for new templates, I'm sorry to say. We'll certainly let you know if that changes. Thanks for the generous offer! :D
