Happy holidays (yes, we know, it’s a bit on the early side, but we couldn’t wait)! As we head into 2016, we’re ready to bid adieu to media query-based design and offer a warm welcome to fluid hybrid design.
So what does this mean for email geeks everywhere? It means that we can FINALLY build email templates that are responsive, even in clients and devices with awful support for modern CSS. No more pinching and zooming with emails in the Gmail App or having a movie star meltdown when a new device comes out and messes up all your breakpoints!
To make sure you’re ready to take on the ever-changing landscape of email, we’ve coded a beautiful fluid hybrid template that will look great in the most popular devices and email clients.
If you already have an account with us or are an Email on Acid community member, you already have access to this template in our resources section! Simply log in and navigate to the resource center in the left navigation bar.
Your fluid hybrid template includes:
- Preheader text area
- 5 different content blocks
- Fluid hybrid design that adapts to any screen (even Gmail app!)
- Bulletproof CTA’s
- Footer with social links

Always walk before you run…
If fluid hybrid design is new to you—and even if it isn’t—make sure to continue to test as you tinker with and customize your new template.
Email on Acid even offers a free 7 day trial, which includes unlimited email testing in the most popular inboxes so you can thoroughly test as you integrate this new approach into your emailing efforts.
