Blog, Day 7 – Online Europe

It was a beautiful day, we even had some sunlight so we managed to have some outdoor activities. The theme of the day was MailChimp. Most of us never heard of it before this project, but in the end everybody managed to get the hang of it as it is really easy to create a professional looking e-mail newsletter with this tool. First workshop was about coming up with a campaign on paper. We used a simple layout and started adding and subtracting things based on it. There were some really creative campaigns. Later on, as part of the second workshop we had to create a profile on MailChimp and then bring our imaginary campaign to life by collecting mail addresses from participants and then putting elements of our campaign in MailChimp. We reviewed everyones campaign. It was really fun and in the end the designs some participants made were really interesting and eye-catching. It’s hard to believe the project is coming to an end so fast. In the evening we had a farewell party and everyone was really hyped about it.
