OK, so I know I'm a geek, but there must be other geeks reading right now that will appreciate this post.
I received today a newsletter from myfonts.com. I have no idea if I have received their newsletter before because I've never noticed it but this morning I definitely did.
Here's a screenshot:
Cue geeky moment >
It's the best looking newsletter I've ever seen! They've considered everything, the type (obvioiusly), the colours, the grid and layout. The great looking photo with the bright pink type caught me at the top and caused me to not only marvel at it, but read it rather than put it in the "save for rainy day" pile.
Plus, now I've blogged about it and I'm excited to see the next one. Just goes to show what a difference a good design makes...
