The Challenge

In this Sparkbox Code Challenge, you are tasked with creating a newsletter sign-up form. The form must have the following:

  • A form element
  • A label attached to an email input field
  • A submit button

Challenge yourself in an area you want to grow! This can be making the form accessible, adding animation, trying a new CSS feature or custom properties, or building in a new framework.
