I subscribe to a lot of retailer emails, looking for ideas and best practices on subject lines, template design, messaging, cool design elements, and so on.
Of these, only a small percentage truly stand out from a design perspective – making each email worth viewing as much for its visual presentation as for the products and offers being promoted.
I often find creative inspiration from these emails, and not just for emails that I plan to send myself. They can be a great source of ideas for web banners, landing pages, general page layouts, and a range of web design elements. They’re also simply very pleasing to look at.
Here are 11 emails I would recommend web designers subscribe to for a daily dose of creative energy.
