8 Inspirational Email Design Galleries You Need to See

When I first started at Knowtify, I took several weeks to educated myself about email design (and I'm still learning) even though I had designed for web and mobile previously - it's a different beast all together! Email design isn't the only thing that matters, but since you only have 5 seconds to capture someone's attention once they open your email, a great design that accentuates your content can be the difference between a click and a delete.

With well designed emails being the norm now, it's more important than ever to keep up. Luckily, I bookmarked the resources I used, and now I share them with you!

Here are the best 8 email design galleries you need to check out:

Mailchimp is the big gorilla (pun intended) in the world of email marketing, so it's no surprise they have an awesome gallery.
