I take a look at designing a modular template system. This is simply a group of reusable modules and email patterns, that can be combined together in various ways to generate different templates. Although not a new approach, I've seen a surge of interest in the last few years as everyone grapples with mobile redesigns.
The featured examples vary in scope and industry. Adorama started with just ten modules and have gone onto expand it, whereas Monster’s latest is 35. They also had different design challenges, which I go through along with our process, user testing and internal management.
