So just met some problem need you guys professionals help, hopefully, this is the right place.
A Client needs their brand newsletter design, they use MailChimp, but they don't want to use MailChimp's templates, they want their brand totally unique and tailored, so they want a custom newsletter, and then upload to the MailChimp.
Since I'm a designer only, not developer, so I do design part, and then they have a developer to code my design.
So my questions are: 1.what's the best size for custom design email which will upload on MailChimp? I noticed that the MailChimp templates max width is 600px right? Then if the custom design page size should have the same width as their templates width?
any other thing/tip should notice when design email newsletter in software(clients prefer using Photoshop)?
clients also want to add an animated gif in their email newsletter, if so how should I do? I mean, first to create the animated gif, then separately upload on MailChimp? Or other methods?
Thank you so much, as a newbie in email newsletter design hopefully can get some help if possible. and please forgive my stupid questions lol
Thanks in advance.
