That’s what we read on an email header on a sunny and rainbowy friday morning. Okay, the weather description might be an exaggeration, but when Mailchimp asked us to create sixty holiday templates in sixty days for their multi-million user software, we couldn’t help feeling like hugging Falkor.
So, a few hours of happydance later, we begun our challenge with the first set of ten templates for Thanksgiving.
Ten more templates, featuring original illustrations and an adorable octopus monster kid.
Thirty more designs, plus a never-seen-before close up on Santa’s boots as the bonus track.
And ten more gorgeous New Year’s templates to greet your clients, friends and client-friends.
We had to come up with one creative idea, draft, iteration, coding and testing every day for two months. We worked hand in hand with Mailchimp’s amazing team and the reward was far beyond our wildest expectations.
For four years, our templates were available for free for 15 million email marketers, who used them year after year to greet their readers on these special dates on hundreds of million emails.
We got featured on Mailchimp’s blog and got amazing feedback from every continent. In time, our designs even circled back to our inboxes in some of the publications we’re subscribed to and made us feel quite proud.
