Thankfully, the days of silo-ed email marketing run by two techies hunched in a shared cubicle wedged into a forgotten corner far from the marketing department are largely over at most companies. However, marketing email can still suffer from "forgotten stepchild syndrome" when it comes to design.It's a fair enough question: "Should my email creative match the design/look/feel of my company's website?" Ideally yes, provided your website was created or at least had a face lift in the last few years. (If it hasn't been touched since 2002, that's a different story.) But in general, yes, from a creative standpoint your email marketing messages need to be included in your digital family.
