Live : Eco-design & email creation

There is a lot of talk abouteco-design in recent months. Eco-design can be more easily understood when it comes to manufacturing a product. But what about when it comes to making an email?

Until today, when creating an email, it is natural to include several dimensions:

  • The economic dimension: the email must be profitable and/or must benefit the company.
  • The desirability dimension: the email must arouse the reader's curiosity, it must be beautiful and give desire.
  • The technical dimension: the email must display correctly on all opening environments.
  • The human dimension: The email must provide added value for its target.

But there is one dimension that is not yet systematically addressed: the environmental dimension.

Integrating eco-design in emailing must become a reflex. It means including the environmental notion at each step of the email life cycle, whether you are a designer, integrator or marketer.

In this live interview, I ask Thomas Defossez about his approach to including the environmental dimension when designing and integrating email.
Why Thomas? He is an emailing designer & integrator at Badsender. It may sound strange but he is really passionate about email (the real passionate, not the one who says he is passionate for his LinkedIn profile). He has this double skill so rare and so precious in our business: the one to know how to sublimate an email creation and the one to know how to code as cleanly as possible. He is in love with Figma. He's an emailing R&D freak, he's on the lookout for all the latest news and innovations. But he never lets himself be impressed by innovation. He takes a step back and always confronts the glitter with the essential needs of brands. He is a great teacher, so he leads trainings. He's got a hell of a pen so he writes tons of articles and great guides on our blog. In fact, he recently wrote a guide to eco-design and another accessibility guide in emailing.

Reading content isn't everything. The best way is to talk to us.

PRECISION This live will deal with eco-design for email creation (design + HTML integration). So on 2 of the 8 steps of the email life cycle. Of course, including the environmental dimension is done at the stage of setting up the emailing strategy. The other stages will be covered in other lives.
