Revamp your Email Design: Insightful Strategies from Respected Art Directors

As Seen On

In the digital age, one marketing channel has remained consistently powerful despite the emergence of various social media platforms – email marketing. Forward-thinking businesses continuously strive to create more engaging and captivating email designs to optimally utilise email builders, such as Marigold’s Campaign Monitor.

The brilliance behind a strategically designed and captivating email speaks volumes about the significance of expert advice. Experienced art directors, Noelle and Meghan, bring to the table a wealth of knowledge honed over numerical years in managing and implementing every area of marketing strategies. These seasoned professionals assert that the key to a successful email design project begins with comprehensive understanding of its primary goal.

Before immersing in colors, fonts, and layout designs, it’s essential to recognize what the email intends to achieve. Does it aim to boost product sales, enhance brand awareness, or nurture customer relationships? By identifying the primary objective, this initiates a solid base for your project and paves the way for future enhancements. Correspondingly, understanding the brand aesthetic and goals further enhances this foundation. Every client or project has its unique style and mission. Incorporating these sets of uniqueness, combined with the crux of the message of the project, should seamlessly bridge the brand and subscribers.

Content hierarchy holds a pivotal role in email design. The primary message, the very soul of the communication, must prominent. The rest of the content must seamlessly cascade, offering supportive details that enrich the primary message. This gives every receiver a crystal clear message.

Balancing your message throughout your email design is also a tedious yet exhilarating process. Knowing the right techniques, such as the inverted pyramid and zig-zag structures, can turn a bland email into an interactive communication tool. The main message is placed at the top of the pyramid, while supporting ideas or details are systematically arranged in descending order.

Designing your emails is not all about aesthetics, but the strategical placement of the main message with the least significant ones. Amplify your primary message by experimenting with font sizes, playing with color contrasts, and incorporating smart-spacing techniques.

In summary, a captivating email design is an interplay of understanding the principal goal of the email, recognizing the brand’s aesthetic, manipulating the content hierarchy, and using design principles and structures. Using these tools, and with insights from respected Art Directors Noelle and Meghan, unboxing your email will become a consistent delight for your subscribers rather than just another task. The shift from a design-centered approach to a strategy-center perspective will not only improve your email’s visual appeal but also boost your business’ success in the long run.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
