AM Inbox: Alibris template redesign

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Alibris, 9/28 — Let us tempt you with impossible to resist books, Friend
Alibris has redesigned their email template, making it considerably softer and more free-flowing. The most apparent change is the new S-curve design that draws the end down through the design much more effectively than the boxy tiers used before. The use of “freehand” arrows and text also soften up the design and make it more casual and approachable. Even the “Selling your books…” banner at the bottom of the email has been recast in this friendlier tone. Also, in the header, the search box is more prominent than before and the navigation bar has been changed to highlight that Alibris sells more than just books now.

Here’s the new design (left) and the previous design from a Sept. 21 email:
