AM Inbox: That’s not an S-curve…THIS is an S-curve!

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

Sephora, 12/15 — Top-rated products
S-curve designs—where images and text alternate between right and left placements—are proven to draw the eye down through an email. The S-curve in this Sephora email is probably the most literal that I’ve ever seen. Very cool and eye-catching.

Home Depot, 12/15 — Last Chance for FREE Shipping in Time for Christmas + Save Up To 40%‏
’Tis the season to pun off Christmas sayings and song lyrics. Some get more than a little overused, but I enjoyed the freshness of the pun in this Home Depot email that promoted gift cards.
