About This Class


Ready to create a stunning newsletter signup page?

Want to make it easy for potential subscribers to hand over their email addresses?

This class is about a) creating simple custom signup pages; b) inspiring you to blow the socks off potential subscribers; and c) showing you how to get started!

Why Should I Take The Class?

  • Gathering email addresses and sending email newsletters is a leading way to create a captivated and engaged audience.
  • But signup pages are often bland and boring – which is stupid, considering we live in this information-saturated and attention-scarce age! Who wants to hand over their email address to just another somebody?
  • By customising your newsletter signup pages, you can get them looking hot and sexy, and increase your signup rate!
  • But most importantly you can get them looking like your brand and the content they contain. This way, you're guaranteed to attract the right subscribers.

Who's It For?

  • You’ll need some HTML and CSS experience to get the most from this class.
  • But there are options for non-coders too!
  • As a designer, business owner, or anyone with a newsletter, you get to learn what’s possible!

Good course if you use mailchimp for your signup page however not sure about the target audience. Will a newbie know how to implement fun, interesting styling? Will an experienced coder get enough detail?
Very good class!

Rich Armstrong

Product Designer

Rich's title is Product Designer but he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. He's studied multimedia design and graphic design, and is a self-taught programmer. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs Studio Armstrong, an Amsterdam-based creation company, with his wife. He also doodles all the time, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!

He spends most of his working day researching and experimenting, much like his hero, Lucius Fox, does. Rich likes to think he's a minimalist, but he's fooling himself – he's as messy and unorganised as the any other creative genius.

Rich has been teaching online classes on Skillshare since late 2015 – and he likes it a lot :) He's since created the weirdly named Tap Tap Kaboom brand that showcases his experiments, designs and classes. Follow him on Dribbble, Instagram, Ello and YouTube. He also has a newsletter type thing that you can subscribe to.
