At Studio 63 we get a lot of cold emails. From suppliers to students looking for internships to veteran designers looking for a change. All different asks, but they all fall into the same category: the cold email. What is a cold email? It is when someone who has never met you or has never connected through Linkedin, contacts you with a request. We all have to do the same thing sometime in our lives and sometimes it is difficult to get a reply back.
I went through the last 30 days of portfolio submissions on our site and noticed a few things that were good and some things that you should not do when cold emailing a design agency.
