Email Design and Development

Below are several HTML email design examples including newsletter designs, postcard templates, reactivation campaigns, ecommerce and event-based messaging.

20+ years of relevant email design and coding experience with brands including:

Cheetahmail (now Cheetah Digital): Creative Director
GoDaddy: Art Director/Developer
SurveyMonkey: Designer/Developer

Zendesk: Designer/Developer
Kendo Brands (Marc Jacobs, Fenty Beauty, Ole Henriksen): Developer

I worked as an main line Art Director for Godaddy where I designed and ultimately coded campaigns as part of their overall creative team. In this time, I also helped them translate their new brand look-and-feel into email creative.

  • Klaviyo
  • iPost
  • Listrak
  • Bronto

Quicken and Simplifi

From onboarding series to newsletter templates, I’ve designed and developed most, if not all, of Quicken’s email creative over the past several years.
