Email Template Redesign

February 2021


The email templates for UNC Kenan-Flagler’s MBA portfolio were in desperate need of a refresh, especially because the templates did not encourage the use of imagery or stylistic elements to engage the reader. Finally, these templates were not responsive, making for a poor mobile experience.



With the help of Unlayer, I created a base skeleton for the future template. This provided a starting point to create multiple versions of email templates for different uses, such as: Header image, personal email, and images within the email.

Using HTML and CSS skills, I was able to tweak these skeletons to achieve the desired look that aligned with the UNC Kenan-Flagler brand standards as well as accessibility standards.


  • Audit all current email templates
  • Create 6 email templates per program (4) for flexibility in use
  • Ensure accessibility, mobile responsiveness, and alignment with brand standards
  • Use HTML/CSS to manipulate email templates
