When it comes to email, there’s nothing Paul’s more passionate about, than delivering the best possible experience a subscriber can enjoy through their email client.
This has led him to challenge long-accepted methods of email design and development, and introduce innovative techniques, to make email more accessible and subscriber-friendly.
HTML typography is his tool of choice in delivering this, a subject on which he’s written about in net magazine, his email newsletter Type E:, and has spoken about at events such as The Email Design Conference, hosted by Litmus, in 2014 and 2015.
Earlier this year, he put some of those typographic techniques into his first book, ‘A Type of Email: A handbook for working with HTML typography in email’, which has inspired and informed email designers and developers alike, all around the world.
