New Daily Email!

The Design Files new daily subscribers' email looks a bit like this!

Okayyy so this may not seem like the BIGGEST news for you guys but it sure is BIG news for me!  FINALLY after years of frustration with The Design Files very rudimentary automated email subscription service, TODAY we are launching a customised html daily email!

This means that those of you who subscribe by email will no longer see a weirdly formatted RSS-style email - instead you will see this very pretty lay-out which mirrors the look of the actual website!  I know this is nerdy stuff but I am SERIOUSLY excited!

ALSO by popular request, the new subscription service gives you the OPTION to receive Daily Blog posts and/or the Guest Blog post each day!  I know many of you have been wishing you could subscribe to the Guest Blog by email - well now you can!

If you are a current email subscriber and are happy with your current daily email, you will automatically receive the new email and don't need to do anything at all.  If you are a current subscriber who wishes to subscribe to both daily posts AND the Guest Blog, simply scroll down to the bottom of today's email, click on 'Change your preferences here' link and follow the prompts!  Super easy.

IF you are not a current email subscriber and wish to subscribe to receive every new post by email, click here!

IF you are still loving your daily visits to the actual website and have no interest receiving content in your inbox, that is totally cool too!

Postscript - things like this may appear seamless and invisible in the general scheme of things, but in all honesty it is not so simple to make these technical things happen efficiently!  I must give a HUGE shout-out to Suse and the rest of the crew at Lettuce Systems who have researched and built this fancy new mailout and tailored it especially for The Design Files!  GENIUSES I tell ya.
