Effective Communication: EMAILS

A simple yet effective move such as descriptive email subject lines, helps keep a project more organised and easier to keep in line. Many people ignore or do not fill in the subject line when sending emails. When a person (in this case TDA) receives sometimes over a hundred emails regarding a project, many missing a subject line or title, it makes searching time consuming, costing both the client and designer time or money.

When emailing, clearly labelling the subject line with something that indicates the email content or files / project attached is requested. For instance, “Allan’s Website, Product Photos” or “Betty’s Website Text” as this will make it easier to search for and reference. It also helps with versioning for revised files and other media. Your help in this area makes for a smoother process.
